CITY OF MALOLOS The Provincial Government of Bulacan eyes to collect P752M from unpaid real property tax in the province, according to Engr. Miriam T. San Diego, head of Revenue Operations Division of Provincial Assessment and Treasury Office (PATO).

San Diego said the Provincial Government, through PATO, launched the Real Property Tax Amnesty Program which started in July 1, 2010 and will run until November 30, 2010.

The said program was supported by Ordinance No. 01-T-2010 of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan, approved on June 28, 2010.

Through this program, penalties on top of the unpaid tax will be removed and only the annual tax due will be paid.

This amnesty will help Bulakenyos catch up with their tax payments and be removed from the list of delinquent tax payers. Also, this will serve as a leeway for the taxpayers, especially those who were affected by typhoons Ondoy and Pepeng.

Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado believes that it is the duty of Bulakenyos to pay their taxes on time, therefore showing their support to the programs of the provincial government that will help achieve a better province and a better life for its people.

He said that it is an embarrassment to have a very low tax collection to think that Bulacan is recognized as one of the richest provinces in the country.

The three cities in Bulacan, Malolos, Meycauayan and San Jose Del Monte are not included in the implementation of tax amnesty program. ###
