Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista clarified the payment of the real property tax (RPT) for 2018 and 2019 are still based on the old fair market values (FMV).

He explained this was due to the Quezon City government’s suspension for two years (2018 and 2019) based on the enactment of ordinance SP-2778 approved on Dec. 6, 2018.

FMV is the selling price of lands and other properties which city assessors use as basis for computing RPT.

However, those who have not fully paid their 2017 RPT still have to pay the balance based on the adjusted FMV.

The city government has also offered amnesty to the city’s taxpayers with RPT delinquencies for 2018 and prior years.

Bautista reminded the concerned taxpayers to settle their obligations from January 1, 2019 to October 30, 2019.

He stressed that it is only upon the full settlement of these delinquencies can the taxpayer be allowed to pay their 2019 RPT tax as stated in ordinance no. SP-2779, s. 2018.

To minimize inconvenience, Julius Avenido of the Business Permit and Licensing Office (BPLO) said that business taxpayers “need not settle their obligations solely at the Quezon City Hall.”

For small business owners, Avenido said taxpayers with annual gross sales/receipts of P 500,000 or less and who are retailers of goods (sari-sari store owners) and apartment lessors, excluding partnerships and corporations, may be assessed and may pay their business taxes in any Quezon City Tax branches.

For business and RPT taxpayers, he said that the concerned parties have three payment options:

  • Pay at the cashier, Quezon City Hall Treasury Offices (open to accept payments started on all work days of December 2018 and all Saturdays and Sundays of January 2019)
  • Pay using GCash and mobile money, for tax payments up to P 100,000 (for Globe and TM cellphone users)
  • Pay using online payment (for Landbank and BankNet ATM or debit account holders)

However, GCash and online payment options are only available for taxpayers with no delinquencies or unpaid RPT in 2017.

For business taxpayers, Avenido explained these two options may be availed of one day after the taxpayer obtains the Final Tax Bill.

The city treasurer’s office (CTO) tax branches are located in the following areas: Cubao (15th Avenue, Murphy); Galas (Bayani Street); La Loma (Mayon Street); Novaliches (Novaliches District Center); Talipapa (Barangay Talipapa, Quirino Highway); SM North EDSA Annex (SM Government Services Center).

Avenido said CTO Tax branches can also accept miscellaneous payments including Professional Tax Receipt (PTR) fees, health permit fees, occupational permit fees, tricycle regulatory fees, liquor permit fees, senior citizen fees, civil registry fees, police clearance fees, and market fees.
