by PIO release

The city council will hold a public hearing on the proposed ordinance prescribing for the revision of the schedule of market values for the city’s real property taxes on Oct. 2.

The proposed revision of the schedule of market values for the city’s real property taxes has been pending with the local legislative body since 2016. The Department of Finance and Bureau of Local government Finance called on local officials to update the schedule of market values, the last amendment of which was in 1996.

Councilor Elmer O. Datuin, chair of the city council committee on finance and appropriation, underscored the importance revising the schedule of market values for its real property taxes.

He said the proposed ordinance underwent at least 24 public consultations over the past several years that is why it is high time for the local legislative body to already act on the matter.

Based on data obtained from the city Assessor’s Office, 55 percent of the lands in the city are classified for residential purposes, 39 percent of the lands are government reservations, five percent are said to be other classifications while one percent is said to be institutional.

City Assessor Ma. Almaya Adawe said hat government reservations include the road networks, forest reservations, parks, and public places that are commonly used by the public in their daily activities. She said  every taxable property contribute in the generation of resources used by the local government for the maintenance of the said places.

She said that government reservations and institutional properties are exempted from payment of real property taxes.
