The Antipolo City local government on Tuesday, April 19, was recognized by the Department of Finance (DOF) for its excellent Covid-19 economic recovery practices for its residents and Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) adversely affected by the pandemic, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

Antipolo City Mayor Andeng Ynares received the award of Best Local Fiscal Management Practice in the area of Recovery Initiative to Help Rebuild the Economy from the DOF.


“Binigyang papuri ng DOF ang mga best practices ng Antipolo upang buhayin muli ang bumagsak na ekonomiya dahil sa pandemya. Unti-unting nakabangon ang ating mga local businesses at MSMEs sa tulong ng ating best practices in Local Treasury and/or Assessment Services (The DOF has given due recognition to Antipolo for its best practices in reviving its economy due to the pandemic. Our local businesses and MSMEs are now slowly recovering from the pandemic with the help of our best practices in Local Treasury and/or Assessment Services),” Ynares said.

The mayor also enumerated the city’s best practices to help businesses such as the exemption from business taxes, fees, and charges of establishments that do not earn more that P200,000 in gross income, and the Good Samaritan Discount which grants a 50 percent discount on business tax of businesses that converted their establishments into isolation facilities or testing centers.

Ynares added that Antipolo was also recognized by the DOF in 2019 as No. 1 among all cities in the country in the 2019 Year-on-Year Growth in Local Sourced Revenues.

“Masasabi natin na isa sa mga modelo sa bansa ang Antipolo City LGU pagdating sa mga proyekto at programa na nagbibigay pag-asa sa ating ekonomiya, at mga small and medium size enterprises sa kabila ng kasalukuyang pandemya (We can say that the Antipolo City LGU is a role model in terms of projects and programs that give hope to our economy and to small and medium enterprises despite the pandemic),” she said.

On Nov. 22, the LGU announced that it gave a discount to residents who paid in advance their Real Property Tax (RPT) for 2022 to help them amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The LGU said that those who settled their RPT on or before March 30, 2022 got a 10 percent discount.

The city government also said it has an Online Real Property Tax Payment System for the safety and convenience of taxpayers. Residents may pay using PayMaya and create an account by visiting the link:

“Patuloy ang ating pag-innovate at pag-develop ng mga paraan upang makapag-transaksyon kayo sa City Hall sa pinaka-convenient na paraan. Inaanyayahan po ang lahat na gamitin ang mga online services para one-click-away na lang ang inyong mga transactions (We are continuously innovating and developing ways to make your government transactions at the city hall more convenient. We are urging everyone to use our online services so that your transactions will just be one click away),” the LGU said.


“Ang lahat ng ating mga programs, services at best practices, kasama na diyan ang ating mga hakbang laban sa pandemic, ay naisasatupad natin dahil sa mga buwis na inyong binabayaran. Anuman po ang aming pagkukulang, rest assured po na patuloy po nating pinipilit na paghusayin ang mga serbisyo sa ating lungsod tungo sa kaginhawahan ng ating mga kababayan, hanggang sa mga susunod na henerasyon na Antipolenyo (All the programs services and best practices, including our fight to defeat the pandemic, is being done thanks to you and your taxes. We are assuring everyone that we will continue to improve our services for the benefit of our citizens and the next generation of Antipolenyos),” it added.
