Magbayad ng tamang buwis! Vice Mayor Bilog tells Baguio golf courses to pay correct taxes

Jun 5, 2017 @ 15:55

The Baguio City Council, according to a a Philippine Star article, is requiring golf courses to secure business permits.

Vice Mayor Edison Bilog said Baguio’s two golf courses, Baguio Country Club (BCC) and Camp John Hay (CJH), have not been paying proper taxes to the city government.

The Baguio politiko also said that the city’s Permits and Licensing Division should shut the golf courses down if they refuse to comply.

But BCC spokesman Andrew Pinero said the BCC “has a business permit and we have been and continuously been a top taxpayer of the city and BIR (Bureau of Internal Revenue).”

Bilog refuted this and said he noticed a huge discrepancy in what the two establishments have been paying the city government.

He claimed that BCC and CJH were paying taxes as resorts hotels but not as golf courses.
