Local Tax

All Freetonians have a role to play in the transformation of our city

All Freetonians over the age of 18 are required to pay an annual local tax of Le 5,000. This contributes to funding of a range of public services that will drive Freetown’s transformation – including waste management, flood mitigation and education.

Local tax can be paid through a number of means:

  1. Deduction at-source from staff salaries by employment
  2. Payment to community organisations (e.g. Traders’ Union) with receipt books
  3. Payment to the bank, with the receipt brought to Freetown City Council
