PhilRealty recognized as one of 2023’s Top Taxpayers in Pasig City

The Pasig City Government recognized its Top Taxpayers from the range of Business Taxes and Real Property Tax for 2023 with the theme “One of the Pillars of Progress: Honoring our Tax Contributors” during an Awarding Ceremony held on Tuesday, February 27, 2024 at The Grove by Rockwell.

In addition to recognizing the Top Taxpayers, the Awarding Ceremony also aims to express gratitude to them for paying the proper taxes on time – which is really a great help for the continued improvement of the Pasig City Government’s programs and protections for Pasigueños and their investors.

Unlike the previous awarding ceremonies of Top Taxpayers in recent years, it is not just large corporations that have been recognized for the year 2023. For the first time, even sole proprietors (business taxes) and individuals (real property taxes) were recognized for their significant contributions to reaching or exceeding the Pasig City Government’s target collection last year (their faces were blurred in photos and the post did not include a list for their protection and privacy).

To begin the program, City Treasurer Marita Calaje gave opening remarks. This was followed by inspirational messages from Mayor Vico Sotto and Vice Mayor Dodot Jaworski, Jr. The top 10 taxpayers for business taxes (categories: corporations and sole proprietors) and top 10 taxpayers for real property taxes (categories: corporations and individuals) were recognized.

After the awarding proper, Atty. Isagani Elias Elacio, the External Affairs Head and Legal Manager of Ortigas Company and Ltd. Partnership who is the over all top taxpayer from Business and Real Property Taxes – Corporation, delivered a message. And the program ended with closing remarks from City Administrator Atty. Jeronimo Manzanero.

The awarding ceremony for Top Taxpayers was led by the City Treasurer’s Office.
