Muntinlupa extends tax relief until Dec. 29
The local government of Muntinlupa relaxes collection of penalties for late payment of business taxes from the second quarter until the remainder of the year in a bid to help the private sector to recover from losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Mayor Jaime Fresnedi signed City Ordinance 2020-150 waiving penalties and surcharges incurred for the non-payment of business taxes from 2nd to 4th quarter of 2020 as assistance to the business sector.
Fresnedi said as the effects of COVID-19 pandemic further intensify the hurdles being faced by the private sector, the City Government of Muntinlupa as a partner to business sector will extend its assistance by providing for tax reliefs.
However, all business taxes due for the said period shall however be subject to the penalties and interest prescribed by Muntinlupa Revenue Code if not paid on or before December 29, 2020. Muntinlupa City Business Permits and Licensing Office advised business taxpayers in the city to settle all outstanding balances on or before the deadline to avoid incurring penalties.
Earlier this year, Muntinlupa City has imposed several extension of deadlines for the payment of taxes and fees amid the community quarantine in Metro Manila.
In May, Muntinlupa City Council adapted the Department of Finance (DOF) Department Circular (DC) No. 002-2020 through City Ordinance 2020-095 for the uniform adoption and implementation on the extension of deadlines for the payment of local taxes, fees, and charges imposed by local government units from March 25 to June 25, 2020.
The local government of Muntinlupa has also passed ordinances in March providing a two-month payment extension on Real Property Tax payments and other payables to the City Government for the 1st Quarter, including payment for business taxes and fees for the 2nd Quarter, without penalties, surcharge, and interest. Penalties and surcharges incurred for the non-payment of 2nd and 3rd quarter business taxes were also waived through City Ordinance 2020-146.
The Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry - Muntinlupa recognized the local government’s implementation of the Local Economic Continuity Plan which outlines programs and activities for business adaptation in the time of the pandemic and future programs for economic recovery.
