IN NEG. OR.
Mayors assure sustained
operation of iTax system
BY JUANCHO GALLARDE
The League of Municipalities in the Philippines, Negros Oriental Chapter, has committed to continue implementing the Integrated Tax Management System Center from the German International Cooperation Agency starting September 30 this year.
LMP-Neg. Or. president, Jimalalud Mayor Reynaldo Tuanda, and Mayor Valente Yap of Bindoy, however, called on Gov. Roel Degamo to shoulder or underwrite the iTAX Center maintenance fee, since the local government units are already collecting real property tax.
Some mayors questioned the inequitable distribution in the collection of maintenance fee from LGUs, and said it has no legal basis.
