Makati extends deadline of tax payments

account_balanceMakati chat_bubble_outline0 Comments

Makati Mayor Abby Binay said the city is extending the April 20 deadline of payments for business licenses, real property taxes, and other fees and charges until April 30, 2020.

The mayor said the city is also suspending the imposition of penalties, interests, and surcharges accruing from the issuance of the Ordinance Violation Receipts (OVRs) from March 16, 2020, until April 15, 2020, during the Enhanced Community Quarantine period. 

“We have decided to grant an extension of the deadlines for payments and collections, as well as the imposition of penalties, to limit transactions with the city government and reduce exposure to COVID-19 for both our clients and frontliners,” Mayor Abby said.

“At this time, only essential personnel and frontliners are allowed to be at the City Hall premises”. It is also in compliance with the directives of the IATF-EID,” she added.

Under City Ordinance No. 2020-075 approved and enacted last Thursday, the deadline for the second quarter payment of business licenses shall be extended until April 30, 2020, from 8am to 5pm only, instead of April 20 as stated in the city Revenue Code. 

There shall also be no additional two percent penalty to be imposed for the month of March, since all payments are extended until April 30. 

For real property tax, taxpayers may avail of the five percent discount for the second quarter until April 30, 2020 from 8am to 5pm only, instead of April 20, while the payment for the first quarter will be extended until April 30, 2020.

The corresponding two percent per month penalty will be imposed on May 1, 2020 for those who will fail to pay on or before April 30, 2020. Deadlines for Other Fees and Charges payments that fall within the Enhanced Community Quarantine will be extended until 5pm of April 30, 2020.

The interests and surcharges on Ordinance Violation Receipts (OVRs) are also suspended from March 16 until April 15, 2020, and the computation of penalties, interests, and surcharges shall commence on April 16, 2020, onwards.

The OVR Office will remain open and will operate with the recommended skeletal force, however, there will be no redemption of OVRs that will be processed from the said suspended dates. 

For OVRs issued before the enactment of this Ordinance, the counting of the period within which to pay and redeem the OVR is suspended from March 16 until April 15, 2020. For OVRs with redemption periods, with the last day to redeem falling within the suspension period, the last day of redemption shall be on April 15, 2020.

The mayor reminded though, that all existing laws, ordinances and rules and regulations shall remain in force and in effect during the period of suspension of penalties, interests, and charges.

Law enforcement officers, traffic enforcers, and deputized officers are mandated to continue enforcing all laws and ordinances. All violators apprehended will still be issued an OVR, she stressed.
