Reports and Recommendations of the President | May 2020

The focus will be on improvements to the administration of the real property tax (RPT) and on management reforms. In particular, the project will (i) support institutional development and policy formulation for property valuation, (ii) implement a property tax valuation database and information systems, (iii) enhance the RPT administration for selected local government units (LGUs), and (iv) professionalize local assessors and strengthen the capacity of LGUs. The project complements the programmatic approach of the Local Governance Reform Program, which was approved in November 2019.
