MANILA, Philippines — Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso declared General Tax Amnesty to delinquent business and real property taxes, as well as traffic violations in the city of Manila from Oct. 1 until Dec. 29, 2021.

According to Domagoso, the ordinance was signed in a bid to help alleviate some of the city’s taxpayers’ financial burden and help businesses recover amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

“This situation (COVID-19 pandemic) makes it difficult for taxpayers to settle their obligations with the city. As a consequence, these unpaid impositions have incurred surcharge and penalty interests,” Domagoso said.
