MANILA, March 28 – The Quezon City government has extended to Friday, April 5, the deadline for the payment of real property tax for the first quarter of 2013 without penalty.

The original deadline is March 31, 2013 which happens to fall on Easter Sunday.

The City Treasurer Office cited that another consideration for the one-week extension was because the last week of March happened to be Holy Week.

Meanwhile, the city government is set to conduct its first public auction of delinquent real estate properties in various barangays of the city on April 4.

QC Treasurer Edgardo T. Villanueva said that the public auction will be held starting at 10:00 A.M. at the taxpayer’s Assessment and payment Lounge, Groundfloor, City Hall Complex.

Villanueva said the auction will be in accordance with the provisions of Section 260 and 263 of republic Act No.7160 or the Local Government Code of 1991.

He added that the properties to be sold have been certified to be delinquent in the payment of real property taxes and penalties as of the first quarter of 2013.

Prospective bidders on the public auction sale are required to post a cash bond of P10,000.00.

The tax delinquent properties include commercial/residential lots with improvements and condominium units.

The city government conducted a similar public auction of real properties in the city last December.(PNA)
