Business groups led by the Metro Bacolod Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the Bacolod Filipino-Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industry are now preparing their counter proposal for the tax payments in accordance with the new tax ordinance of Bacolod City, MBCCI Frank Carbon, said yesterday.
Carbon said the city has given them two proposals that contain tax rates with rebates and those without, though he refused to reveal details of the percentage ratings.
He said they met with their members last night and had agreed that business associations like hotels and restaurants, private hospitals, and bankers’ groups have to make their own proposals, which the MBCCI will consolidate before presenting it to the city in their next hearing.
