By Aimee Marie Biboso

MIAGAO, Iloilo – The municipality of Miagao is now set for the province wide launching of the Real Property Tax Amnesty Program 2019.

As active partner in this initiative, Ms. Ninfa M. Momblan, Acting Municipal Treasurer urged the 119 Punong  Barangays  to help support the municipality, through the Office of the Municipal Treasurer, in its drive to effectively disseminate and promote the Tax Amnesty Program to their constituents especially the delinquent real property taxpayers who wish to avail of the amnesty.

“With this program, the municipality is eyeing a boost in the collection of real property taxes by the end of year 2019,” she said.

The Provincial Government of Iloilo through Provincial Ordinance No. 2019-198 effected this year’s granting of tax relief to delinquent real property taxpayers in the province, with respect to penalties and interests until December 31, 2019.

It can be recalled that the Province of Iloilo implemented the Real Property Tax Amnesty Program in the year 2014.

As the launching was done by district, the municipality of Miagao hosted the First District of Iloilo Congressional Launching on January 14, 2014 at the Justice Ramon B. Britanico Hall, Miagao, Iloilo.

This year, the municipality of Oton will host the Congressional Launching on October 2, 2019. (AMB/Information Office)
