Makati to open satellite realty tax payment centers
The Office of the City Treasurer of Makati will open 31 satellite realty tax centers on scheduled dates in different barangays starting July 2, Tuesday, for real property owners with taxes due in the third quarter of 2019.
“Real property owners in the city are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity, as it would help them save time, energy, and transportation expenses,” Mayor Abby Binay said.
Binay said that through the Realty Tax Division under the Finance Department, the city government ensured the efficiency of services at the satellite payment centers, where each transaction would typically take a maximum of five minutes.
Taxpayers only need to present their previous receipt and pay the taxes due to receive an electronic receipt, the mayor said.
The payment centers will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
On July 2, the payment centers will be opened in Barangays Bel-Air and Urdaneta, followed by Magallanes and San Lorenzo on July 3.
The schedule for the rest of the week is as follows: July 4, Barangays Dasmariñas and Forbes Park; and July 5, Barangays Bangkal, Pio del Pilar, San Isidro, Palanan, and San Antonio.
The following week, payment centers will be open to serve taxpayers, as follows: July 9 (Tuesday), Barangays La Paz, Sta. Cruz, Singkamas, Tejeros, and Kasilawan; July 10 (Wednesday), Carmona, Olympia, Valenzuela, Poblacion and Guadalupe Viejo; July 11 (Thursday), Guadalupe Nuevo, Pinagkaisahan, Pitogo, Cembo and South Cembo; and July 12 (Friday), West Rembo, East Rembo, Comembo, Pembo and Rizal.
Based on the city’s Revenue Code, Makati offers a five percent discount for quarterly payments made during the first 20 days of the quarter (July 20 for the third quarter). On the other hand, late quarterly payments will incur a penalty of two percent per month.
