Iloilo City LGU Offers Tax Amnesty


LGUs can provide assistance to their citizens as a way of showing support to them during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The LGU of Iloilo City has offered tax amnesty in an effort to cushion the impact of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) on city hall coffers.

Mayor Jerry P. Treñas encourages delinquents to pay their obligations and help the LGU to continue delivering services to the Ilonggos amid the COVID-19 crisis.

City Treasurer Jinny Hermano said the reprieve may provide relief to those who can’t afford to pay the charges on top of the principal dues.

The coverage of tax amnesty is interest and penalty of basic real property tax. Delinquents with unpaid dues as of 31 December 2019 can avail of the program without paying interest.
