To extend assistance to the private sector experiencing disruption of economic activities brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic and community quarantines, the local government of Muntinlupa has extended the deadline for business tax payments.
Mayor Jaime Fresnedi approved City Ordinance No. 2020-115 extending the deadline of payment of the 3rd Quarter Business Tax payments from August 19 to September 18, 2020 without penalties, surcharge, and interest.
However, all business taxes due for the same period shall be subject to the penalties and interest prescribed by Muntinlupa Revenue Code if not paid on or before September 18, 2020.
Fresnedi assured the members of the private sector that the local government will continue to support local businesses in Muntinlupa during these trying times.
Recently, the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry – Muntinlupa has recognized the local government’s efforts in curbing COVID-19 in the city and its assistance to local businesses amid the pandemic.
During the local business chamber’s virtual general assembly last July, PCCI-Muntinlupa president Elvie Sanchez-Quiazon conferred the Sterling Growth Catalyst Award to Mayor Jaime Fresnedi in recognition of his leadership in addressing the health crisis while still boosting the sustainability of local economy.
Quiazon said the local chamber lauds Mayor Fresnedi’s “transformational and adaptable leadership, commitment and eminent public service to boost the development and sustainability of the Muntinlupa City in challenging times.”
The local exec extended his thanks to PCCI-Muntinlupa for their recognition of the local government’s COVID-19 response efforts to minimize its health, economic, and social impacts in the city.
Fresnedi said the award also recognizes the hard work of Muntinlupa’s front-liners who are driven by a shared goal to eliminate COVID-19 in the city.
As of August 10, Muntinlupa City has 2,038 confirmed cases with 1,222 recoveries, 726 active cases, 90 reported deaths, 968 suspect cases, and 675 probable cases.
