Isang General Revision ng mga Ari-Ariang Hindi Natitinag ang nakatakda at mapping ang itinakda ngayon taon, ayon sa ating Provincial Assessor, Architect Joey Robles.
Ang Bayan ng Baliwag ay patuloy na bumababa ang Real Property Tax Assessment and Collection sa buong Lalawigan. Ang dating nasa pang-apat (TOP4) ay pansampu (10th spot) na pwesto na ngayon. There seems to be a problem because it is not parallel to the dynamism of it the business sector and economic activity, dagdag pa ng Panlalawigang Taga-Tasa.
Ang lugi dito ay ang mga paaralan na na kadepende lamang sa School Education Fund na bahagdan ng Real Property Tax Collection.
Unfortunately, the School Education Fund of schools did not increase substantially in the last three years. Despite of that, Baliwag schools continue to perform excellently, with Catulinan and Tarcan garnering the Top 1 and 2 spots with the highest average score in the National Achievement Test.
The Muncipalities of DRT, Norzagaray, San Ildefonso and San Miguel enjoy huge RPT Collections because of Quarrying and Mining Activities. Cement Factories are situated in San Ildefonso and Norzagaray.
While, economic activity continues to rise in Baliwag, RPT seemed to be not congruent.
Meanwhile, developers and homeowners associations must look into the payment of real property tax of common road and facilities as those are not public properties and subject to TAX.
If those remain to be unpaid, the option available is to turn over those facilities to the local government (if qualified). However, residents must be pepared to open their gated subdivisions for the public.
PUBLIC WARNS AGAINST ILLEGAL TRANSACTIONS
The Provincial Assesor also warns the Public to NOT TRANSACT with ANYONE including government employees regarding discounts or backdating as these illegal activities have criminal implications. They may report to the Provincial Assessor’s Office or your Public Assistance any persons who engage in these types of fixing.
