WHEREAS, Section 201 Republic Act No.7160, otherwise known as the Local Government Code of 1991, provides that “All Real Property, whether taxable or exempt, shall be appraised at current and fair market value prevailing in the locality where the property is situated”;

 

WHEREAS, Section 219, of the same Code provides that: “That Provincial, City or Municipal Assessor shall Undertake a General Revision of Real Property Assessments within two (2) years after the effectivity of the Code and Every Three (3) Years Thereafter”;

 

WHEREAS, Section 212, of the same Code, provides that: “before any general revision of property assessment is made pursuant to the provisions of this title, there shall be prepared schedule of fair market values by the provincial, city and the municipal assessors of the municipalities and the different classes of real property situated in their respective local government units and enactment by ordinance of the Sanggunian concerned”;

 

WHEREAS, the last General Revision of Fair Market Values for Land and Schedule of Values of Buildings and other improvements was in the year 1999;

 

WHEREAS, in view of the tremendous increase of the fair market values of real properties in the City of Tabaco, particularly in the newly developed residential and commercial areas, the existing real property valuation approved in 1999 has become outdated and no longer reflective of the prevailing market value, and there is now a need to amend the existing schedule as mandated by the Local Government Code of 1991;

 

WHEREAS, in compliance with the foregoing provision, the City Assessor has prepared the schedule of Fair Market Values for Land and Schedule of Values of Buildings and other Improvements and other classes of real property located within the jurisdiction of Tabaco City pursuant to Local Assessment Regulations No. 1-92,   the Manual on Real Property Appraisal and Assessment Operations (MRPAAO) under Local assessment Regulations 1-04 and Department Order No. 37-09 prescribing the Philippine Valuation Standards issued by the Department of Finance;

 

WHEREAS, the Sangguniang Panlungsod of Tabaco passed a resolution, “Adopting the Executive-Legislative Agenda of the City of Tabaco” which includes among others, the LGU’s plan to conduct a General Revision of Real Property Assessments and Classifications in the year 2017;

 

WHEREAS, the Sanggunian Panlungsod passed SP Internal Resolution No. 242-2017, requesting the Department of Finance for a moratorium on the conduct of a general revision in the City because of the destruction and damage brought about by Typhoon Nina which hit Tabaco and the rest of the Bicol Region on December 25, 2016, the request, however,  was not granted;

 

WHEREAS, the purpose of the general revision of real property, in addition to its primary purpose of equalizing and updating valuation, is to bring to light again existing properties -rediscover many  properties, that have been lost from the tax rolls, those which have been “undeclared” and to enable the assessor to purge from the roll the double assessments of properties which have been issued and that have accumulated through the years, to reclassify properties based on its Highest and Best Use, or it simply has the same purpose as the periodic physical inventory conducted by a business establishment;

 

NOW, THEREFORE, on the motion of Hon. Raul Roi B. Borejon, duly seconded and approved by the body,

 

BE IT ENACTED, as it is hereby enacted by the Sangguniang Panlungsod of Tabaco City, Albay by virtue of the powers vested in it by law, in regular session assembled, that:

Provided, however, that the assessment of real property shall not be increased oftener than once every three (3) years except in case of an improvement substantially increasing the value of the said property or of any change in actual use.

  1. Undeclared real property found at any time or during a general revision of real property assessments shall be listed, classified, and valued like similar properties in the City on the basis of the schedule of base unit construction cost in force, and assessed also like similar properties in the City and shall be subject to back taxes of not exceeding ten (10) years from the initial assessment.

  5. Effectivity of assessment under the foregoing cases shall be as follows:
  • Cancellation or reduction of assessment shall be made effective the quarter next following the quarter during which the cause or ground for cancellation or reduction has occurred.
  • Increased assessment shall be made effective the year following the year of re-assessment, i.e., revised assessment made this year (2017) shall be made effective in 2018.
  • No re-assessment of real property should be made in the absence of any aforementioned circumstances.

 

SECTION 7. DATE OF EFFECTIVITY OF ASSESSMENT OR RE-ASSESSMENT. All assessment made after the first day of January of any year shall take effect on the first day of the succeeding year.

Provided, however that the re-assessment of real property due to its partial or total destruction or to a major change in its actual use or to any great and sudden inflation or deflation of real property values, or to any other abnormal causes, shall be made within ninety days front the date any such cause or causes occurred. The re-assessment shall take effect at the beginning of the following quarter.  If he is not satisfied with the action of the City Assessor in the assessment of his property or if there is gross illegality in the assessment he may request to the Local Board of Assessment Appeals of the City within sixty (60) day’s from the date of receipt by him of the written notice of the assessment of his property.

  1. Revision of Assessment. An assessment revised this year 2018 takes effect the following year 2019.
  2. Total or partial destruction of real properly refers to the destruction on individual property or property within an area affected but not on the basis of a general revision.

Accordingly, if the same property was totally destroyed, only the first to the third installment of the taxes due for the first to the third quarter of that year on the basis of the cancelled assessment arc collectibles, if partially destroyed only the first to the third installment of the taxes due for the first to the third quarter of that year on the basis of the cancelled assessment, and the fourth installment of the taxes due for the fourth quarter of that year on the basis of the reduced assessment effective October 1, 2017 are collectibles.

On the reverse side of the revised tax declaration, the quarter and year of assessment instead of the year only must be stated as the effectivity or commencing of the tax.

 

SECTION 8. ASSESSMENT OF PROPERTY SUBJECT LO BACK TAXES. Real Property declared for the first time shall have back taxes assessed against it for the period during which it would have been liable, if assessed from the first in proper course but in no case for more than ten years prior to the year of initial assessments.

Provided, however, that the back taxes shall be computed on the basis of the applicable schedule of values in force during the corresponding period.

  1. Basis for computation of back taxes not exceeding ten years – Undeclared property if assessed is subject to back taxes for not exceeding ten years Thus, if an undeclared real property has not ever been assessed since 1999 and if assessed today, the new assessment thereof takes effects as of 2018.  The rule is to include year of assessment when counting back taxes not exceeding ten years.
  2. Undeclared real property subject to back taxes shall be classified and valued on the basis of the schedule of base market values in force during the period the property was undeclared and un-assessed. Thus, if property has never been declared since 1999 and is assessed today, and assuming that there was only one schedule of base market value in force from 1999 to present, that schedule of base market value shall be made the basis for the computation of the market value of the property from 1999 to 2017. As “actual use” was then made a criterion in the percentage assessment of real property, that market value multiplied by the applicable assessment level then enforced is equivalent to the assessed value of that property, which should be made the basis for the computation of back taxes for the years 1999 to 2017.

 

SECTION 9. Undeclared buildings and other improvements shall be exempted from the foregoing rule – the directive of this section on the collection of back taxes on the basis of the schedule of market values in force during the period.

Back taxes should be collected shall only be applied to lands, and not to building and other structures as well as machinery,  buildings and other structures or machinery depreciated by the passage of time and that depreciation may be physical, functional and/or economic. Estimating depreciation for every period is an impossible task, depreciation does not operate uniformly and regularly on that class of property. The amount of depreciation accumulates from year to year and is depreciated or estimated only at the time of appraisal of the property.

Due to the obvious difficulty in estimating the amount of depreciation, undeclared and un-assessed buildings and other structures or machinery subject to back taxes shall be classified and valued according to the schedule of base unit construction cost in use or replacement/ reproduction cost of machinery at the time of appraisal and shall be assessed like similar buildings and other structures  or machinery in the locality to derive their taxable or assessed values, which shall be made the basis for the collection of back taxes not exceeding ten (10) years.

The notice of assessment and owner’s copy of the tax declaration shall be delivered or mailed to property owners within thirty (30) days from entry of tax declaration covering assessments of property in the Record of Assessments.

 

SECTION 12. ACTUAL USE OF REAL PROPERTY AS BASIS OF ASSESSMENT. Real property shall be classified, valued and assessed on the basis of its actual use regardless of where located, whoever owns it and whoever uses it (Sec 217)

  1. Actual Use refers to the purpose for which the property is principally or predominantly utilized by the person in possession of the property (Sec 199 (b))
  2. Assessment is the act or process of determining the value of the property, or proportion thereof, subject to tax including the discovery, listing and appraisal of properties (Sec 199 (f))
