Strengthening LGU’s Real Property Tax: A way to cope with CoVid 19

Strengthening LGU’s Real Property Tax: A way to cope with CoVid 19

The unexpected advent of the CoVid-19 pandemic had impacted people across the globe. The outbreak had several adverse effects, including the massive layoff of employees, stoppage of business operations, government resources shrinking. And, last but not least, is the fear that it instilled into the public’s minds.

Despite all these, efforts to serve and patriotism are seen on numerous occasions to help a needy one. Not to mention our brave and modern heroes – our medical frontliners, who work tirelessly 27/4 to combat CoVid 19 pandemic.

CoVid 19

The government has been relentless in taking actions that will lessen the impact of the CoVid 19. It had exhausted all its resources. The government even went the extra mile to ask for additional support from foreign investors. Thus, making the total national debt a staggering $8.6 trillion.

The government and its people should work hand in hand to lessen the impact brought by the pandemic. In June 2020, the Asia Development Bank had green-lighted over $26.5 million loans so that the Philippine local governments can assess property taxes digitally. This loan grant aims to strengthen LGU’s real property tax collection. By shifting to advance information technology tools relevant in updating tax maps, valuation and assessment, and collection. This, however, will lead to the continued delivery of accessible and quality public service.

Robert Boothe, ADB senior public management specialist for Southeast Asia, added that “Local governments play a critical role in poverty reduction. Mobilizing local revenue in an efficient, equitable, and transparent manner is vital to local governments’ goal of delivering accessible, quality public services. This new project will provide the digital tools, systems, and local staff training needed to help local governments raise revenue”.

Therefore, it is time for our local officials to adopt technologies and services readily available in the market. That will aim to improve property tax collection and speed-up recovery from the pandemic. The time is now to level-up our system and process in administering real property tax. To achieve the greater good and provide lasting public service to the Filipino people.

Why use MapX?

Why use MapX?

Let’s dig deeper into how MapX will help us.

Why MapX

As we all know, MapX is made due to the observation that people are having a hard time, especially in the payment process of their real property taxes. Due to the outdated market value schedules, the government losses up to billions in Real Property Tax.

Some government offices in our country are currently still using the traditional way to pay real property taxes and tax mapping processes. They are even not exposed to the technologies we have to make people’s lives a lot easier.  

In this pandemic, we should think of some strategies or ways to innovate essential services to help our government and our people. MapX is very timely since it gives us options to maximize our time and be productive. All while following the government’s protocol to stay at home and help avoid the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Moreover, it will also help our government to have fast-moving transactions through automation and digitization services.

Why do we need to use MapX?

Aside from a hassle-free transaction in real property tax payment, government transactions will become automated. Tax mapping is a long process using the manual or traditional way. But, in MapX, you can have it digitized in just a short period.

Using technology in this modern world is inevitable. And through MapX, we’ll be able to experience a more comfortable, faster, and better life by making transactions accessible at the tip of your hand.

The Uses of Real Property Tax

The Uses of Real Property Tax

As per the Supreme Court of the Philippines, the Local Government Units (LGU) shall have local autonomy. It is to perform functions and exercise certain powers, not to be overly dependent on the National Government. However, it must still follow the limitations set by the Congress or that in the 1987 Constitution.

Hence, authorized by law, the LGUs can establish their own revenue sources and levy taxes, fees, and impose charges, one of which is the real property tax (RPT). For RPT, the LGUs can appraise all real properties. Whether it is taxable or exempt, at their current and fair market value (FMV) prevailing in the locality.

The use of collections from real property tax helps every locality improve, enhance, and make every person’s life easier. By providing funds for the delivery of basic needs. Most notably in the development of infrastructure for local use including,

  • Low cost housing
  • roads
  • bridges
  • irrigation networks
  • cemeteries
  • public markets
  • elementary and high school buildings

Moreover, the use of real property tax uses also include industrial research and support services and tourism promotion programs. It also funds investment support for micro-credit services and primary health care of the people. Lastly, it provides financial support for the management and maintenance of the ecological balance. The local government units exercise these functions in coordination with national government agencies that provide policy, technical, and material support.

Challenges in paying Real Property Tax in the Philippines

Challenges in paying Real Property Tax in the Philippines

According to the Local Government Code of 1991 or Republic Act no. 7160, property owners are required by the law to pay the Real Property Tax (RPT) every year. For the government to collect real property taxes, they need to identify every piece of real property owner. Tax mapping has an essential role since it provides the public with vital real property tax information. And a basis of an adequate tax record.

However, in most regions, including Caraga, the challenges in paying real property tax are outdated valuation references and low collection processes. They are still not using the advanced tools in tax mapping and payment methods.

Challenges in Paying Real Property Tax

There are two ways to pay taxes in the Philippines. First is through the Local Government Unit (LGU) that is often through the Treasurer’s Office. The second one is online. Some places, specifically in the National Capital Region, are already using the online payment mode, which makes it a lot easier and less hassle because they are no longer experiencing long queues for them to pay.

Unfortunately, with the two options in paying the Real Property Tax (RPT), people from Visayas and Mindanao are still using the traditional way. Since online payment for real property tax is still not available. Most of the payers put too much effort into visiting LGUs where their properties are. As a result, property owners experience a long queue and use old-fashioned ways of processing the payment to comply with taxpayers’ responsibilities.
