Valenzuela extends property tax relief until June 2021
MANILA – The city government of Valenzuela extended the deadline for resorting to “tax amnesty on overdue property tax interest” on Friday to ease the burden on taxpayers amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Under Ordinance No.807, the city government grants tax relief to all owners of overdue real estate for all classifications by tolerating interest on property tax due from November 3, 2020 to June 30, 2021.
In accordance with Republic Law No. 11469, also known as the “Bayanihan to Heal As One Act”, the city government has extended the deadline for paying taxes, fees and charges.
“The amount of interest for the 3rd quarter of 2020 and less will be tolerated during the amnesty period. The amount for this tax relief can also be paid in full or in installments,” the city government said in a statement. .
He added that the ordinance “would not only encourage the settlement of unpaid property taxes, but would also speed up collection.”
“There have been discoveries, returns and assessments that have not been received by taxpayers because the notices of assessment were received after payments were made and / or at a later date due to the limited labor / skeleton of the delivery service. This also became a factor that caused additional interest on the main tax due, ”the city added.
The city government has said that taxpayers who want the tax break must pay all their unpaid property taxes “in full or in installments on or before the deadline, without any extensions” to the city treasurer’s office. .
However, the ordinance does not cover the tax amnesty for overdue real estate that has been collected and put up for public auction for non-payment of property taxes, real estate that is the subject of pending and / or contentious cases and all property awaiting expropriation.
Taxpayers are requested to pay their contributions through the Valenzuela online services (Permis Paspas) at https://online.valenzuela.gov.ph/.
They can also contact the municipal treasurer’s office at telephone number: 8 352 – 1000 loc 1106, for further questions about the ordinance.
