KUCHING, Oct 16:  Kuching South City Council (MBKS) mayor Datuk Wee Hong Seng advises house-owners under MBKS jurisdiction to pay their second half assessment rate based on the new bill printed at MBKS counter.  

He said it has been MBKS’ practice to send out the assessment bills of the first and second half at the same time beginning of the year.


“During that time, the (Sarawak) government has not announced that there will be discount for assessment rate.  If you pay using  the second half assessment bill which you received at the beginning of the year, then you will be paying the amount without discount. The discount you are entitled will only be refunded to you next year.  

“So my advise to you is, when you pay for your assessment rate, ask the counter to print a new second half assessment bill, and you will receive one with discount which you can then duly pay,” said Wee at his weekly interactive social media live session “Shall Wee Talk” today.  

He said assessment rate for second half of the year will be due at the end of October. — DayakDaily
