Taguig City moves deadline of payments of city taxes to May 20


Taguig City has moved the deadline for the payment of city taxes and other obligations to May 20, 2020, in response to the impacts of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) on citizens.

 

Through Executive Order No. 04, Mayor Lino Cayetano extended 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 implements City Ordinance No. 9 Series of 2020, signed on March 20, 2020. The ordinance authorized the city mayor to extend deadlines for taxes and other payables due to the city.

 

The executive order specifically applies the extensions to the payment of local business taxes due on April 20; real property taxes due on March 31; amusement taxes due on April 20; 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.

 

The order to extend the deadline to May 20 is in consideration of the decision, earlier, of the national government to extend the filing of income and other corporate taxes from April 15 to May 15. This will, hopefully, allow our citizens ample time to efficiently settle their obligations with the national government first, before paying their obligations to the City.

 

“We want to ease the burden the COVID-19 pandemic has given to Taguigeño stakeholders”, said Mayor Cayetano. “At this point, the safety, security and health of the families of the city take precedence over taxes.”

 

“We owe this extension to them, as much as we owe them the medical and relief assistance they have received from City Hall since the enhanced community quarantine began. We will continue to provide services and exemptions that they deserve until we have removed the dangers of COVID-19,” Mayor Lino added.

 

As of April 1, 2020, the local government has distributed stay-at-home family food packs to 85,035 families in Taguig. These food packs contain rice, canned goods, noodles, coffee, cereal drink and bottled water. A food pack is good for 3-4 days for a family of 5.

 

Taguig City has also distributed 54,904 anti-COVID 19 kits to senior citizens, PWDs and other vulnerable sectors in the city. A kit comes with vitamins good for 30 days, masks, antibacterial soap and instructional materials containing important information on proper handwashing, how to disinfect their homes and all they need to know about COVID-19. ###

Taguig, iniurong hanggang Mayo 20 and dedlayn sa pagbayad ng buwis

 

Iniurong ng Lungsod Taguig ang dedlayn sa pagbabayad ng mga buwis at ibang mga fees hanggang Mayo 20 bilang tugon sa mga hadlang at kahirapan na dulot ng Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19) sa mga mamamayan.

 

Sa pamamagitan ng Executive Order No. 04, binigyang palugit ni Alkalde Lino Cayetano ang ang pagbayad ng buwis sa negosyo, paglilipat ng propriedad, amilyar at lahat ng iba pang uri ng buwis na binabayaran sa lungsod. Dahil sa palugit na ito, walang ipapatawaw na interes, multa, o dagdag na patong (surcharge) hanggang mababayaran ang buwis o fees sa bagong dedlayn na Mayo 20.

 

Isinasakatuparan nito ang Ordinansa Blg., 9 (Serye 2020) na ipinasa ng Sangguniang Panlungsod noong Marso 20, 2020. Binigyang kapangyarihan ng ordinansa ang alkalde na i-extend ang dedlayn sa mga buwis at bayarin sa lungsod.

 

Ang executive order na ito ay sumasakop sa pag extend ang dedlayn ng pagbabayad ng buwis na may dedlayn sana ng Abril 20; real property tax na dapat sanang bayad sa Marso 31; at iba pang buwis at mga bayarin na nasa loob ng panahon ng pagdedeklara ng enhanced community quarantine. Sakop rin ng pagbibigay palugit ang renta at iba pang uri na bayarin sa lungsod.

 

Ang order na i-extend ang dedlayn hanggang Mayo 20 ay alinsunod sa nauna nang pahayag ng pamahalaang nasyunal na i-extend ang filing ng income at iba pang corporate na buwis mula sa April 15 na maging Mayo 15. Sa tulong nito, ay magkakaron ang mga mamamayan ng sapat na oras upang kanilang maiayos ang kanilang mga obligasyon sa Pamahalaan, bago maasikaso ang kanilang mga buwis sa lungsod.

 

“Nais naming mapagaan ang pinapasang hirap ng mga stakeholders ng Taguig dahil sa COVID-19”, saad ni Meyor Cayetano. “Sa panahon ngayon, mas nangingibabaw ang kaligtasan, seguridad, at kalusugan ng pamilya kaysa buwis.”

 

“Obligasyon nating magbigay ng palugit, gaya ng pananagutan nating maghatid ng tulong pinansiyal at medikal, na ginawa na natin simula pa ng enhanced community quarantine. Patuloy tayong magbibigay ng ganitong mga serbisyo hanggang lumipas ang panganib ng COVID-19”, dagdag ng alkalde.

 

Ngayong Marso 31, 2020, nakapamahagi ng ang pamahalaang lungsod ng food packs sa 85,035 na pamilya sa Taguig. Naglalaman ang food packs ng bigas, mga de lata, noodles, kape, cereal drink, at inuming tubig. Makasasapat ang food packs para sa 5 tao sa loob ng 3-4 na araw.

 

Nakapamahagi na rin ang Taguig City ng 54,904 anti-COVID 19 kits para sa mga senior citizens, PWDs, at iba pang sector na mahina sa sakit. Naglalaman ang kit ng bitamina para sa 30 araw, mga masks, antibacterial na sabon, at mga na instructional materials na naglalaman ng mahalagang impormasyon sa tamang paghugas ng kamay, pagdisinfect ng bahay, at iba pang kaalaman ukol sa COVID-19.
