The Ipoh City Council’s 2021 annual assessment tax lucky draw grand prize giving ceremony was held on 7th April at the Ipoh City Council Building.
Ipoh City Mayor Y.Bhg. Dato’ Rumaizi bin Baharin@Md Daud had drawn 30 tax slips to declare the winners. It was witnessed by Y.Bhg. Clr. Mahader Ahmad bin Mohammad Ayob, Clr. Tuan Haji Abu Bakar bin Hussian, Council Secretary Puan Zuraina binti Kamarul Ariff, Senior Director Puan Saidatul Akma binti Jamaludin, department heads and members of the press.
Since organising this annual lucky draw as a sign of appreciation to taxpayers on being responsible property owners and to encourage the prompt and full one year payment of tax assessment, it has received encouraging response.
This year, the Council (Majlis Bandaraya Ipoh – MBI) offered cash prizes totaling RM76,000 to be won by lucky citizens with the main prize worth RM20,000, as well as 200 consolation prizes.
On 29th March, 2021, the Ipoh City Council shortlisted 230 lucky property owners, then thirty of these names were randomly selected to win the cash prizes.
A total of 141,191 bills were settled this year compared to Year 2020 at 148,174 bills, with a collection of RM36.45 million compared to RM39.5 million in 2020, during the Movement Control Order (MCO). This is a positive sign that Ipohites undertake the settlement of assessment tax for an entire year all at one time, and their eagerness to participate in the lucky draw.
Congratulating the winners, Dato’ Rumaizi expressed hope that Ipoh residents would carry out their responsibility in settling their assessment tax. He also wished for continued solid support for MBI in realising its aspiration to make Ipoh a Clean, Green and Developed City (Bersih, Hijau dan Maju).
