REAL property taxpayers are in for a treat as the Zamboanga City Government and its partners have completed the development of an online payment system that will streamline the payment of select city fees.
City Mayor Maria Isabelle Climaco-Salazar said the Online Payment System for Real Property Tax will be formally launched on Tuesday, March 28.
Salazar said it will immediately go live and start accepting payments of real property taxes.
Armed with their tax declaration number, Salazar said real property taxpayers or their agents will no longer need to leave the convenience of their homes or offices to request for an assessment of real property taxes owed to the city government or to pay the same.
All visa cards--credit, debit or prepaid--are accepted.
Salazar said the online payment system is one of the modules of the payment system that the City Government will implement to make the payment of city, business and real property taxes as well as new business permit applications much easier and more convenient.
She said it is a flagship project of the City Government together with the United States Agency for International Development, the Development Bank of the Philippines, the Mindanao University of Science and Technology and the Sky Electronic and Communications Solutions.
