QC allows online payment of property taxes, new business permit fees
TAXPAYERS and business owners in Quezon City can now easily pay their property rights and new business license applications through the QC “Pay Easy” electronic payment system.
The platform, hosted on the city’s E-Services website, will allow payers to pay by credit card, Paymaya E-wallet or instantly transfer funds from the following banks: BPI, RCBC, Robinson’s Bank and UnionBank.
Mayor Maria Josefina Tanya G. Belmonte said more online payment methods will be added over time and the system will eventually be integrated with all online services requiring payment to the municipal treasury.
“Paying taxes shouldn’t be taxed,” Belmonte said. “This is why the local government is keen to provide economical and practical solutions like this to solve the problems of our taxpayers and business owners. “
As of today, individuals who wish to pay their property tax and / or business owners who wish to apply for a new business permit can do so through the QC e-Services portal.
City administrator Michael Victor N. Alimurung said “Pay Easy” follows in the footsteps of “Biz Easy” and “Build Easy”, which presents all stakeholders with “a win-win situation”.
“Carrying out transactions online would save time and effort, and limit face-to-face interactions, which helps prevent the risks of Covid-19.
“And finally, thanks to ‘Pay Easy’, we are able to respond to the call of the Anti-Red Tape Authority [Arta] and comply with RA 11032 or the Ease of Doing Business Act, which aims to digitize government transactions, ”Alimurung said.
He added that this innovation targets one of Belmonte’s 14-point agenda, which is to make Quezon City “the preferred destination for business.”
