4Q Business Tax Deadline Extended to December 21

VICE MAYOR DEAN BRYAN KUA today said the Sanggunian has heard the clamor of businesses for more respite from the current economic difficulties by pushing the deadline of payment of business taxes out further.

Two weeks after extending the time for settling 3rd quarterly business taxes, the Sanggunian Panlunsod today pushed back again the payment of taxes for the last quarter of the year to December 21.

“Local tax matters are within the domain of the LGUs. This includes the fixing of the deadlines for the payments and to suspend such deadlines when necessary,” Councilor Michael Fernandez, author the Ordinance No. 777, said.

No less than the Local Government Code allows the Sanggunian to, for justifiable reason or cause, extend the time for the payment of taxes, fees and charges without surcharges and penalties, but only for a period not exceeding six months.

Vice Mayor Kua said the Covid-19 pandemic and the implementation of community quarantines are no doubt justifiable reasons for LGUs to cause the deferment of the payment of taxes without penalties.

The city council likewise moved to approve Ordinance No. 776 entitled “AMENDING SECTION 324 OF THE REVENUE CODE OF DAGUPAN CITY.” Under the proposed amendment, an additional paragraph was included to authorize the use of alternative modes of payment of taxes particularly by online or electronic means.
