SP Grants Business Tax Reprieve in Wake of COVID-19 Pandemic; Deadline Extended Anew to September 20

The Sangguniang Panglunsod unanimously adopted in today’s regular session another temporary reprieve for taxpayers by extending the deadline of 3rd quarterly payment of business taxes to September 20. The extension comes on the heel of other full range of strong business support measures and other government economic relief programs approved by the city council and made available to Dagupan businesses since the onset of COVID-19 pandemic on March this year.

The measure, Ordinance No. 2217-2020, entitled “FURTHER EXTENDING THE DEADLINE OF PAYMENT OF BUSINESS TAX (3RD QUARTER) OPERATING IN THE CITY OF DAGUPAN TO SEPTEMBER 20, 2020” is intended to cushion the severe impact of the coronavirus on businesses, halt cessation of operations and sustain the employment of more Dagupenos, particularly small and medium scale enterprises.

Vice Mayor Dean Bryan Kua said Dagupan enjoys the reputation of being one of the most progressive and business-friendly cities in Region 1. The ordinance, he said, will show that the city is “future-forward and will stand with businesses who are experiencing hardships”.

Atty. Crisanto Ambrosio Q. Estrada, Officer-in-Charge, One Stop Business Center and Ms. Romelita F. Alcantara, City Treasurer, said the city government supports the Sanggunian initiative, stating the loss of potential revenue in the form of collection from penalties is “just a small amount and Dagupan must show more compassion for small, struggling businesses”.
