In a radio interview at DZAT’s ‘Punto por Punto,’ provincial treasurer Malou Uy, said they are expecting P1.8 billion taxes from real property if the owners will religiously pay their taxes.
“We will intensify tax generation campaign by encouraging the owners of real properties in Quezon Province to pay their taxes,” Uy said.
