During the flag raising ceremony on November 16, 2015, the City Treasury Office (CTO) reported that they have exceeded their targeted revenue collection of P 91.4 million to an actual amount of P 92.3 million resulting to a 101% collection efficiency.
The said amount is the revenue collected from January 1, 2015 to November 16, 2015 and the sum of the tax and non-tax revenue collections, which have an actual collected amount of P 43.3 million and P 49 million respectively.
The CTO added that tax collection from businesses in the city posed little to no hurdles, but collecting from real property taxes needs a bit more support from the people. In this regard, the city mayor encouraged the support of the constituents to pay their real property taxes as soon as they are able.
The city mayor commended the CTO and the City Treasurer, Mr. Jessie P. Batchar, for a job well done.(Yen Robles, LGU-Tacurong)
