“I have authorized the concerned frontline offices to render overtime services in order to serve our taxpayers and investors. Aside from being spared from long queues as the deadline draws near, they would also avoid penalties and even enjoy discounts and other perks given to early birds,” Makati Mayor Abigail Binay said recently.

The mayor said from Jan. 2 to 20, the Business Permits and Licensing Office (BPLO) and other concerned offices will be open to serve beyond office hours on weekdays and on weekends at the ground floor lobby of Makati City Hall Building II.

On Jan. 2 and 3 (Thursday and Friday), the offices will be open until 7:30 p.m.

The rest of the schedule will be as follows: Jan. 4 and 5 (Saturday and Sunday), 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Jan. 6 to 10 (Monday to Friday), 8 a.m. to 10 p.m..; Jan. 11 and 12 (Saturday and Sunday), 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Jan. 13 to 17 (Monday to Friday), 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Jan. 18 and 19 (Saturday and Sunday), 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.; and Jan. 20 (Monday), 8 a.m. to 10 p.m.

On the other hand, the Real Property Taxes (RPT) Division has announced that satellite payment centers for real property taxes are scheduled to accept payments in 31 barangays, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m, as follows: Jan. 3 and 6 (Bel-Air, Urdaneta); Jan. 7 and 8 (San Lorenzo, Magallanes); Jan. 9 and 10 (Dasmariñas, Forbes Park); Jan. 13 (Bangkal, Pio del Pilar, San Isidro, Palanan, San Antonio);

Jan. 14 (La Paz, Sta. Cruz, Singkamas, Tejeros, Kasilawan); Jan. 15 (Carmona, Olympia, Valenzuela, Poblacion, Guadalupe Viejo); Jan. 16 (Guadalupe Nuevo, Pinagkaisahan, Pitogo, Cembo, South Cembo); and Jan. 17 (West Rembo, East Rembo, Comembo, Pembo, Rizal).

The RPT office at the second floor, Makati City Hall main building will also extend work hours, but will accept payments only until 7:30pm on weekdays and until 4 p.m. on weekends, to allow time for closing and balancing the day’s collections.

On Jan. 2 and 3, the office will be open until 9:30 p.m.

The rest of the schedule will be as follows: Jan. 4 and 5 (Saturday and Sunday), 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Jan. 6 to 10 (Monday to Friday), 8 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.; Jan. 11 and 12 (Saturday and Sunday), 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Jan. 13 to 17 (Monday to Friday), 8 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.; Jan. 18 and 19 (Saturday and Sunday), 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Jan. 20 (Monday), 8 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.

Under the Makati Revenue Code, discounts are given to non-delinquent taxpayers, as follows: 10 percent for full year RPT payments made until Jan. 20, and five percent discount for prompt quarterly payments (Quarter 1 until Jan. 20; Quarter 2 until April 20; Quarter 3 until July 20; and Quarter 4 until Oct. 20).

Annual RPT payments made after March will incur an eight percent penalty on the first quarter, and two percent on every succeeding month. For late quarterly RPT payments an eight percent penalty will be imposed for that quarter, and two percent on every succeeding month.

Penalties for late business tax payments include a 25 percent surcharge and a two percent penalty per month of delay until the amount due is fully settled.

For miscellaneous fees and taxes, the deadline for professional tax payments is on Jan. 31, while the deadline for payments on Community Tax, both corporate and individual, is on Feb. 28.
