Mayor Isko offers Manila’s online tax payment system to all LGUs
CALOOCAN CITY, May 25 (PIA) –Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso has offered his local government’s online tax payment system to all local government units in the country for free.
Domagoso said that in order to curb the potential exposure of taxpayers to COVID-19, fellow local government units may utilize the City of Manila’s online tax payment system for their respective cities or municipalities.
“Ako po ay nananawagan sa lahat ng mayor sa buong Pilipinas, municipal o city, kung gusto niyo lang, ino-offer namin para sa pangkahalatan na, kung gusto ninyong magkaroon din ng online payment bibigay namin sa inyo ng libre,” Domagoso said in his weekly Facebook Live program “The Capital Report.”
The Manila City government recently launched the website www.cityofmanila.ph where Manileños could process their tax payments online.
“‘Yong buong program, ‘yong buong source code, nakuha ko ng libre, kagabi ‘yong may ari ng kumpanya kinausap ko, sabi ko may mga nag-iinquire sa aking mga mayor paano daw magagawa nila sa kanilang localities. Eh napapayag ko po kagabi,” Domagoso said.
“Sa mga local government units sa Pilipinas, if you want online payment sa tax, sa real property tax, sa business tax and other services kasi pong ito sa amin pati ‘yong healthcare, occupational health clearance, birth certificate, ma-o-online ‘yan, libre ko ring ibibigay sa inyo ‘yong halos na-save namin na daan-daang milyon na gastos,” he added.
Aside from the payment of taxes, the public may also apply and secure their birth certificates and community tax certificates (Cedula) soon on the cityofmanila.ph website. (Manila PIO/PIA-NCR)
