What is the difference between municipal tax and khajna?

Municipal taxes are taxes paid to the local municipality on properties owned by you. There is no uniform rate for municipal taxes, as different municipalities have different rates. Municipal taxes are also known as property taxes, house taxes, and municipality taxes.

Khajna means land in Bengali, therfore Khajna tax is the tax payable on the property that one owns. Therfore, to my understanding - 

Khajna tax means Property Tax in Bengali and Property Tax and Municipal Tax are words usually used interchangably. 

Hope this helps.

House assessment and house property charge demonstrates to a similar tax collection framework, where a landowner pays a specific add up to their district or other neighborhood body for support of the essential foundation. I read the all assignment help review and got this information. This information very helpful to me.

I have read the blog and saw all the things on the blog. I think your website is all about the news but, I am happy to see your website. Below I mentioned some information regarding best software to cleanup your PC software that would help to solve the issues that are running on your PC. In another word, I want to say they would finish the malware and viruses only for PC.
