Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso is offering for Manila's online tax payment system for the use of other local government units to lessen their physical transactions with their constituents.

“Ako po ay nananawagan sa lahat ng mayor sa buong Pilipinas, municipal o city, kung gusto niyo lang, ino-offer namin para sa pangkalahatan na, kung gusto ninyong magkaroon din ng online payment, ibibigay namin sa inyo ng libre (I’m calling on all municipal and city mayors in the Philippines, if you want our online payment system, we are willing to share it with you for free),” the local chief executive said Friday night in his Facebook page.

Moreno referred to the city’s cityofmanila.ph website, a local government-initiated website where Manila residents can pay their taxes online. He said, he is willing to share the program and the source code to other mayors who do not have their online payment system yet.

“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 (The whole program, the whole source code, I got it for free. Last night, I talked to the owner of the company and told him that several mayors were asking me how to use it on their own localities. I was able to convince him [to give to you also for free] ,” 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 (To all local government units in the country, if you want an online system for the payment tax, real property tax, business tax and other services, which can include health care, occupational health clearance, birth certificate, we can do it through sharing our system. Because of that we are able to save millions of expenses),” he added.

Those who are interested in the city’s sytem may get in touch with Moreno’s chief of staff, Cesar Chavez, the public information office said.
