  • PB2023-01: An Empirical Analysis of the Factors Affecting Real Property Tax Collection in the Philippine Cities

    Real property tax or RPT provides the most stable own-source revenue for local governments and an important resource to improve service delivery and finance infrastructure projects (ADB, 2017). However, data shows that this source of income for local governments has not been fully maximized. The Department of Finance (2019) reported that local governments are losing P30.5 billion in revenues to outdated real property valuation alone. In particular, cities could have collected as much as P23.1 billion in incremental revenues from real property taxes had their schedule of market values (SMVs) been updated and in sync with international standards.
