Quezon City Tax Relief For Delinquent Real Properties Ends On June 30, 2015

Last Updated on by Jay Castillo | Filed under: - One Comment

Here’s a reminder for Quezon City real property owners: The tax relief for delinquent real properties will expire on June 30, 2015. This is in reference to Quezon City Ordinance No. SP-2363 which granted a tax relief for delinquencies incurred prior to 2010. Check out the details below.

Tarpaulin sighted along at Quezon Avenue: Relief for delinquent real property taxes expires 30 JUNE 2015. Proceed to Quezon City Hall for payments ASAP.

Just recently, we saw tarpaulins for the tax relief along Quezon Avenue, just like the one above (sorry for the blurry picture, It’s the only readable picture my wife was able to take when we passed by).

What does Tax Relief mean?

Based on Quezon City Ordinance No. SP-2363, taxpayers that own real properties (this includes land, improvements, and machinery) which have incurred more than 5 years worth of delinquency,

“may pay the total tax delinquencies from 2010 to 2014, and are relieved from paying their obligation to pay delinquencies incurred prior to 2010.”

I would like to emphasize that taxpayers are only relieved of delinquencies incurred prior to 2010. Delinquencies from 2010 to 2014 still have to be paid.

The granting of the tax relief is in line with Section 192, of Republic Act No. 7160 as quoted below (emphasis mine):

“Local Government Units may, through ordinances duly approved, grant tax exemptions, incentives or relief under such terms and conditions as they may deem necessary”

Furthermore, according to Section 2 of the ordinance, taxpayers can avail the tax relief from January 1, 2015 to June 30, 2015.

Exceptions

Let me quote Section 3 that defines exceptions below:

SECTION 3. Exceptions – The relief herein granted shall not apply to delinquent real properties that have already been auctioned in accordance with section 260 of Republic Act No. 7160 or are currently being settled or paid under a compromise or similar agreements and those with case pending with the Quezon City Board and Assessment Appeal.

The page I listed above also reminds property owners on the list to visit the City Assessor’s office to obtain an assessment of past years’ delinquencies for settlement. Failure to do so may result in the inclusion in the next tax delinquent property auction in Quezon City.


Other Cities/Municipalities that offer tax relief

For 2015, the only other city where I have seen something similar is Las Pinas, which passed a city ordinance that granted a real property tax amnesty, which coincidentally is also up to June 30, 2015 only. Read the following for more details: Real Property Tax Amnesty For Las Pinas City Ends On June 30, 2015

Do you know other Cities/Municipalities that have granted a tax relief/amnesty that real property owners can avail right now? If you do, please share them through the comments below. Thanks!
