Real Estate Broker/Owner with Van Blake-Coleman Realty, St. Thomas/ 1-16940-1B


Here are the last three property tax credits in the U.S. Virgin Islands, I promised to tell you about in my last blog. these tax credits are a little more interesting. With recent increased assessed values the Circuit Breaker Tax Credit will be of interest to many property owners.

Visitablilty Home

Available to property owners who hold a Certificate of Visitability issued by the Department of Planning & Natural Resources, pursuant to Act 7320.

You must produce the Certificate from the Department of Planning & Natural Resouces.

The maximum tax credit is equal to 20% of the tax levied by the Tax Assessor.

Circuit Breaker Tax Credit

There is a $5000 tax credit available if  your property taxes increase over 125% from the previous tax year.

Your gross annual income  must be $135,000 or less

You must provide a stamped copy of your past three years tax returnsYou must renew this application annually.

The credit can be applicable to residential or un-improved  property

This must be your primary residence if the property is improved.


And a not so unique credit . . .

Farmland Credi

The property must be 1 acre or more.

You must  apply for this credit annually.

Your application must be notarized by October 1, of each year.


Again, I  am not a tax advisor, just intrested in everythink that impacts property ownership, tax credits in the U.S. Virgin Islands included.
