CSI Supermarket, WESPAN Dev'' Corp. are top tax payers
For four consecutive years now, Costsavers Supermarket Inc. (CSI) and Wespan Development Corporation (WDC) remained as the city’s top business taxpayers and real property tax (RPT) payers, respectively.
This was gleaned on the recent report submitted by City Treasurer Shirley R. Dela Cruz to the City Mayor, which also revealed that a total of P 26, 648,987.28 has already been collected by the said office representing gross business and RPT tax collections as of March 28.
The city treasurer’s report was the basis in naming this year top five RPT and business tax payers which were recently honored during 11th Alaminos City Charter Day Celebration held at the Don Leopoldo Sison Auditorium here.
City Mayor Hernani A. Braganza led the conferment of highest award to the city biggest business tax and RPT payer for 2012. An especially crafted E-kawayan plaque of recognition, a product of the city’s Hundred Islands E-kawayan Processing Center, were given to the awardees.
Joining the vibrant chief executive in saluting the awardees were City Vice Mayor Cesar Manzano, city councilors Earl James Aquino, Margielou Orange Humilde, Constante Carasi, Oscar Boling, Constante Carasi and Emerlina Ravarra and assistant city treasurer Rolando Aglibot.
Rounding up the top 5 RPT payers were CSI, ETHIEL Corp. (SUKi Market), Alexander M. Ang (ALCEL) Constructions, and S & F Financing Corporation.
On the other hand, joining CSI as the top 5 business tax payers include ALCEL Constructions, Avon Cosmetics Inc., Tarlac Metro Shoppers Development Store and Brothers Venture Corporation.
“This (award) is the city’s humble way of giving due recognition to our top business taxpayers and RPT payers for their valuable contribution to the city’s growing economy and socio-economic progress."
“We salute our tax payers for their compliance, commitment and conscientious payment of the right tax due to the city government even as we look forward to continue working with you in making Alaminos a more business and investment friendly city and one of the fastest growing economies in Region I,” added the third termer chief executive who’s administration has never imposed new taxes for the last eight (8) years now.
“These taxes that were collected are being translated by our city government into laudable programs and projects and quality and swift services to our people and communities,” he continued.
Braganza also thanked and commended the city treasurer’s office, the city assessor’s office and the business and licensing section for its efforts in further improving the city’s tax collection efficiency.
He noted that the commitment, active support and utmost participation in the city’s tax collection scheme by the heads and support staff of said offices coupled with the prompt payment of taxes by our tax payers will go a long long way in raising the city’s revenues. (CIO)
