No extension for realty tax payments in 1st quarter

THE City Treasurer's Office (CTO) is no longer offering a second extension for payment of real property tax (RPT) dues to the City Government for the first quarter of the year.

City Treasurer Erwin Alparaque said the public, particularly the property owners, had been duly informed of the extension to pay their obligations.

The CTO already extended the payment of property taxes for the first quarter to June 30, 2019, after it encountered problems with its system when it implemented the increase in property tax rates.

"The first quarter payment will be until the end of this month only. There will be no more extension. If they fail to pay, there will be corresponding penalties," Alparaque said.

He said real property taxpayers should also remember that while the payment of tax dues for the first quarter had been extended, the real property taxes due for the second should be also be paid before the month ends.

This means owners should pay their first quarter and second quarter tax dues on June 30, 2019.

"We only extended the payment for the first quarter, the second quarter is still due by the end of June," Alparaque said.

He said delinquent taxpayers will be penalized.
