Valenzuela extends real property tax amnesty until June 2021

CALOOCAN CITY, Jan. 4 (PIA) -- To ease the burden of the taxpayers amid the COVID-19 pandemic, the Valenzuela City Government has extended the deadline for availing tax amnesty on the interest of delinquent real property tax up to June 30, 2021.

This, after passing City Ordinance No. 807, which grants tax relief to all owners of delinquent real property for all classifications through condoning the interests on the real property tax due. 

In compliance with Republic Act No. 11469, also known as the "Bayanihan to Heal As One Act," the city government extended the deadline for payment of taxes, fees, and charges.

"The amount of interest of the 3rd quarter of 2020 and below will be condoned within the period of the amnesty. The amount under this tax relief may also be paid in full or in installment," the city government said in a statement.

It added that the ordinance "would not only encourage settlement of unpaid real property taxes but also accelerates collection."

"There were discoveries, declarations, and assessments that were not received by the taxpayers because Notices of Assessment were either received after payments were made and/or at a later date due to the limited manpower/skeleton workforce of the delivery service. This also became a factor, which caused additional interest from the principal tax due," the city added.

The city government said taxpayers who wish to avail of the tax relief must pay all their unpaid real property tax dues "in whole or in installment basis on or before the deadline, without any extension" at the Office of the City Treasurer.

The ordinance, however, does not cover tax amnesty to delinquent real property which has been levied and subjected to public auction sale for non-payment of real property taxes, real property subject of pending cases, and/or litigation and all properties pending expropriation.

Taxpayers are urged to pay their dues via Valenzuela online services (Paspas Permit) at

They may also contact the Office of the City Treasurer through telephone number: 8 352 – 1000 loc 1106, for more questions about the ordinance. (PIA NCR)
