‘Wag paabutin sa petsa de peligro:Toby Tiangco urges businessmen to pay taxes early


Navotas City Mayor Toby Tiangco has urged business establishments to settle their tax obligations early to avoid long lines and late payments.

In a statement, Tiangco said the Business One-Stop Shop at the Navotas City Hall will be working overtime to serve taxpayers. The office will process new or renewal application of business permits and licenses from Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-8 p.m., and Saturday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. on January 2-20, 2020.

Tiangco reminded taxpayers that they face a 25-percent penalty and an additional 2-percent surcharge for every month thereafter if the owners fail to register their businesses on time.

“As much as possible, we want to avoid imposing penalties on business establishments that is why we highly encourage them to settle their obligations immediately,” he said.

Last year, Navotas received recognition from the Bureau of Local Government Finance for its excellent tax collection in 2018.

The city was ranked top 1 in the National Capital Region for Collection Target for Receipts from Economic Enterprises; top 2 in NCR for Collection Target for Total Local Revenues; and top 3 nationwide for Collection Target for Total Local Revenues.
