Officials amending
city’s business tax


Bacolod Vice Mayor Jude Thaddeus Sayson yesterday said the Sangguniang Panlungsod is amending the business tax section of the Tax Ordinance of Bacolod City as a result of their dialogs with business groups that he also said led them to arrive at a figure they believe to be “win-win” for both parties.

Sayson said that, for the manufacturer, retailer and wholesaler, they proposed a standard rate of 37.5 percent of 1 percent of the gross sales. The previous rate was 55 percent of 1 percent, he said.

The Bacolod Sangguniang Panlungsod passed on first reading Wednesday. an ordinance amending Chapter 3, Article 7, Section 16 A, B, C, D, EO1, EO2 and FO3 of City Ordinance No. 565, Series of 2011 or “An ordinance approving the Revised Local Revenue Code of Bacolod City.”moremoremore

Chua kin offer
reward to solve slay

A reward of half a million pesos in cash is being offered by the family of slain hotelier Johnny Chua to anyone who could shed light on his killing, Bacolod City Police Director Senior Supt. Ricardo de la Paz, said yesterday.

De la Paz said he believes that with the reward being offered, other suspects behind the shooting of Chua and the mastermind of the crime will soon be identified.

He said this gesture of the Chua family also indicates that they want to help in resolving the crime. The reward being offered is advantageous as it will encourage those who may have knowledge to his killing to come out.moremoremore
