The Provincial Government of Pampanga launched recently the pilot test of its Integrated Taxation Management System (iTAX) in the town of Minalin, as part of its efforts to improve the province’s tax collection processes.

According to Provincial Assessor Romeo Dizon, the iTAX system will help the province shift from lengthy and tedious manual tax collection processes to that is transparent and efficient.

Minalin was chosen as the pilot site for its ideal size as it covers a smaller land area thus leaving less room for errors and adjustments for the new system.

Furthermore, the municipality’s data is now fully encoded following the recently concluded tax mapping operations conducted by the province.

"With the system in place, we will be able to facilitate the efficient and transparent collection taxes which may eventually lead to increase of earnings on the part of the concerned local government units and the province in general," he said.

Meanwhile, Fourth District Board Member Ricardo Yabut added that the system is free of charge and will not result to the imposition of additional fees on the part of the tax payers.
