The Taguig City government announced on Thursday it is extending the scheduled deadline for payment of city taxes and other obligations up to June 30, 2020 in response to the impacts of coronavirus disease outbreak on citizens.
Mayor Lino Edgardo Cayetano issued Executive Order No. 09 extending the deadlines of “all business taxes, real property taxes, transfer taxes, amusement taxes and other taxes, fees, charges and other financial obligations due and payable to the Taguig City Government during the period of the enhanced community quarantine.”
The executive order specifically applies the extensions to the payment of local business taxes, real property taxes, amusement taxes due, transfer and corresponding city taxes, as well as other taxes and fees, that fall due while the enhanced community quarantine is in effect. The order also extends to rents, charges, and other financial obligations to the city government.
It further ensures that the dues would not incur penalties, surcharges, and interests.
“We want to ease the burden the COVID-19 pandemic has given to Taguigeño stakeholders,” said Cayetano. “At this point, the safety, security and health of the families of the city take precedence over taxes.”
