The local government of Antipolo has offered tax relief to private schools in the city to help ease the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
“Good news to private educational institutions! The city council approved the granting of tax relief to all private schools,” the city government said in a social media post.
“This means, no tax will be paid on business permit renewal. The fees and charges that need to be paid for renewing your business permit are also waived,” it added.
The city government, however, said that private school owners should pay the fire safety inspection fee of the Bureau of Fire Protection and the barangay clearance fee because the two mentioned institutions do not belong to the local government of Antipolo.
“I hope this will help our private schools and their students just like the previously given tax relief to businessmen earning below P200,000 annually, and the PUV drivers (tricycle, jeep and UV) who are also no longer charged for their territorial stickers and franchise renewal,” the city government said.
