Haiti - Economy : Things will change in Port-au-Prince in terms of taxation
Through a partnership with Greenfield Advisors, an international US company with more than 40 years experience in real estate valuation and evaluation of property tax assessment programs, the City of Port-au-Prince will finally be able to collect property taxes and provide basic services to its citizens.

Under the new partnership, the city of Port-au-Prince will receive updated technology and support that will allow city officials to recreate its property database, mail property tax bills, and collect payments in an efficient manner. Greenfield Advisors staff will provide technical support, data collection, and management services.

Ralph Youri Chevry, Port-au-Prince Mayor,, plans to use the additional revenue to upgrade the city’s infrastructure, schools, and trash collection services for the 2.5 million residents.

The partnership will utilize the skills of the Greenfield Advisors team, plus other strategic partners experienced in providing software and technical support to cities desiring to upgrade their tax collection infrastructure.

"Haiti has seen its share of obstacles over the years, but Mayor Chevry has a great vision for his city," said Greenfield Advisors’ Vice Chairman and Co-Managing Director Dr. Clifford Lipscomb. "He is personally invested in making sure that the City of Port-au-Prince regains its status as a center of business and commerce in the Caribbean. We are looking forward to helping the Mayor and his staff realize their dreams for Port-au-Prince."

Once additional staff is in place in both the U.S. and Haiti, officials will send out tax bills this fall to begin the collection process. It’s a big first step in raising the money the city needs to improve its infrastructure and provide needed services.

"This will be a process that will take some time," Mayor Chevry said. "But we are excited about what the future holds for our wonderful city, and we see ourselves as an international destination for visitors from all over the world."
