More freebies await early taxpayers

by Aileen Refuerzo

BAGUIO CITY, Jan. 8 -- Taxpayers who will settle their revenue obligations early will receive more freebies from the city government.

City treasurer Thelma Manaois announced that apart from the discounts annually given to "early birds," taxpayers who will pay their taxes in full will have two chances of winning prizes: by playing the “roleta” and by joining the raffle draw set for April 13.

The three-pronged promotion is part of the city government’s social marketing program approved by Mayor Mauricio Domogan to drum up the campaign for early tax payment and rev up further the collection of real property and business taxes this year.

Manaois said that as in the past years, the city government grants discounts for taxpayers who will settle their real property and business obligations ahead of the deadline.

For real property taxes, a 20 percent discount will be granted to those who will pay their taxes in full from January 1-31.

Those who will pay in full from February 1-28 will enjoy a 15 percent cut while those who will settle their dues from March 1-31 will be given a ten percent discount.

For business taxes, businessmen who can settle their accounts within their scheduled dates of payments will enjoy a ten percent discount in their garbage and sewerage fees.

Apart from the discounts, taxpayers also get the chance to play the roulette and win an instant prize. At stake are blankets, t-shirts, coffee mugs, umbrellas, shopping bags or others.

They can also join the raffle draw by dropping their stubs marked “tambiolo” in the raffle cache for a chance to win big prizes this year. First prize will be a bedroom showcase; second prize, a living room showcase and third prize, a kitchen showcase.

Consolation prizes consist of three units 32-inch LCD television sets; three units washing machine 6.5kg.; one unit 5 cubic feet refrigerator; four units microwave ovens 23 liters; ten units rechargeable lamps and five units pressure cooker. (PIA CAR/ AR-Baguio City PIO)
