EDITORIAL: Did you receive your notice of revised assessment?


“When real property is assessed for the first time or when an existing assessment is increased or decreased, the provincial, city or municipal assessor shall within thirty (30) days give written notice of such new or revised assessment to the person in whose name the property is declared. The notice may be delivered personally or by registered mail or through the assistance of the punong barangay to the last known address of the person to be served.”

This is a provision of the Local Government Code of the Philippines in its Title II Real Property Taxation, Chapter II Appraisal and Assessment of Real Property, Section 223 subtitled Notification of New or Revised Assessment.

It is clear that the existing assessment of real properties in Pangasinan was increased.

It is not clear whether notices of increased assessment were given by the provincial assessor to real property owners.

We have not encountered anyone who was given a notice of the increase in revised assessment.

Did the provincial assessor notify the governor that the existing assessment of his real properties had been increased by virtue of the general revision?

Did the provincial assessor notify the board members who sponsored the revision that the existing assessment of their respective real properties had been increased by virtue of the general revision?

It is very clear that it is the responsibility of the provincial assessor to within 30 days give written notice of revised assessment to every person with a tax declaration.

Have you received or seen any written notice or revised assessment?

Are their penalties on the provincial assessor for not providing each person ho has a real property with a notice of increase in real property assessment?

The concept of giving notification is for the affected real property owner to be given time to prepare the necessary amount that will be due the provincial government because of the increased assessment.

The framers of section 223 took into account the existing capability of the taxpayer to meet the increased tax that he will pay.

Was there a massive notification drive that was conducted in the implementation of the 2003 revision of real property assessments?

Those who have less in life should have more in law.

The increased real property tax in Pangasinan is not equitable.

ANG MASO



Ikulong si Gloria! Ilibing si Marcos!…giginhawa na ba ang mahirap?

BOK NANI BRAGANZA, ang pagpapalit ng president ng Pilipinas ay tungalian ng naghaharing uri at ni minsan ay hindi ito nagresulta sa pag angat ng buhay ng masang Pilipino.

Ang akakala nating mga progresibong puwersa kuno ay ginagamit ang kanilang talino at lakas sa pakikipagsabayan sa mga isyu ng mga nag-aagawang elitistang puwersa para sa karapatang maghari sa Bayang Pilipinas.

Ngayon, ang inaatupag naman ng mga progresibong puwersa kuno ay ang isyu ng pagpapakulong kay Gloria at ang isyu ng pagpapalibing kay Marcos sa Libingan ng mga Bayani.

Mukhang naliligaw ata ng landas ang mga dati nating kasama. Dakilang Araw na naman ng Paggawa at hindi pa rin nila naisasagawa ang tunay na pagsulong sa interes ng inaaping uri.

IKULONG SI GLORIA! Iyan ang panibagong aksyon ng isang pangkat ng naghaharing uri kasama ang ilang nagpapangap na pogresibong puwersa.

Sa isyu ng pagpapakulong kay Pangulong Erap, nakisawsaw ang karamihan sa umanoy progrsibong puwersa at nakialam sa pagpapakulong kay Erap.

Naisagawa ito nang walang dugong dumanak.

Nagbunyi sila sa pagkakaluklok kay Gloria bilang Pangulo.

Pero nasaan na sila ngayon?

Sila na ang nagkukumahog na magfile ng kasong plunder laban kay Gloria at gusto nilang makulong ang iniluklok nilang si Pangulong Gloria.

Ang tanong ngayon? Sa sunod sunod na plunder cases laban kay dating Presidente Gloria (PGlo), ano naman kaya ang ikakagulat ni PNoy sa gagawing hakbang ni PGlo?

Ang huling balita ko ay nasa abroad si PGlo dahil naka-recess ang Congress.

Sana huwag magulat si PNoy kung mababalitaan niya na hindi na babalik si PGlo at maghanap na lang political asylum sa ibang bansa dahil ang kanyang rason ay biktima siya ng political persecution ni Pnoy.

Babalik pa ba si PGlo sa Pilipinas?

ILIBING NA SI MARCOS. Sa isyung ito dapat ang manaig ay kung ano ang batayan kung sino ang dapat mailibing sa Libingan ng mga Bayani sa Makati ayon sa itinakda ng mga nagtayo ng Libingan ng mga Bayani.

DAGUPAN CITY ADMINISTRATOR VLAD MATA, para sa akin dapat mailibing na si Marcos sa Libingan ng mga Bayani dahil qualified siya bilang dating Presidente.

Ang libingan ng mga Bayani ay itinalaga para sa mga sumusunod ayon sa mga regulasyon na pinirmahan nina AFP Chief of Staff Fidel V. Ramos at President Corazon Aquino.

AFP Regulations G 161-373: “Allocation of Cemetery Plots at the LNMB”, which was issued on April 9, 1986 by GHQ under then AFP Chief of Staff General Fidel V. Ramos and then President Corazon C. Aquino, as amended by AFP Regulations G 161-375 on September 11, 2000, is the set of regulations that govern the interment at the LNMB.  

Pursuant to the above cited AFP Regulations, the ten categories of deceased persons entitled to be buried at the LNMB are:

1. Medal of Valor awardees

2. Presidents or Commanders-in-Chiefs, AFP

3. Secretaries of National defense

4. Chief of Staff, AFP

5. General/flag officers of the AFP

6. Active and retired military personnel of the AFP to include active draftees, trainees, reservists and Cafgu active Auxiliary (CAA) who died in the line of duty, combat operations or combat related activities

7. Former AFP members who laterally entered/joined the PNP and the PCG

8. Veterans of the Philippine revolution of 1890, WWI, WWII, and recognized guerillas

9. Government dignitaries, statesmen, national artists and other deceased persons whose interment or reinterment has been approved by the Commander-in-Chief, Congress, or the Secretary of National Defense.

10. Former Presidents, Secretaries of National Defense, widows of former Presidents, Secretaries of National Defense, and Chief of Staff are authorized to be interred at the LNMB.

Maliwanag na si Marcos ay naging Presidente ng Pilipinas at ito ang isang batayan kung bakit puede siyang ilibing doon.

Bahala na kayong makipagdebate kung siya ay bayani o hindi.

Kayong mga nasa kaliwa, balak niyo din bang mailibing sa libingan ng mga bayani kapag kayo ay namatay?

Pasensiya na, hindi kayo qualified.

Kayong mga nasa Kaliwa, ang Libingan ng mga Bayani ay isyu ng naghaharing uri. Huwag na kayong makialam.

Tutal may mga congressman naman na kayo sa House of Representatives, gumawa din kayo ng batas para may libingan din kayo? Anong kabayahihan na ba ang nagawa niyo?

Ang pagtutol sa pagpapalibing kay Marcos ay isang pakikiisa sa kabilang paksiyon ng burgesya na tutol kay Marcos.

Ang pagsawsaw sa usapin ng libing ni Marcos ay walang kinalaman sa pagsulong ng makauring interes.

Administrator Vlad Mata, paano mo ba ginagawa ang trabaho mo in terms of relating to the legislative branch sa Dagupan? Mahirap ba, naiipit ka rin ba sa nag-uumpugang bato?

Administrator Vlad, tapos na ang isyu ng pagkuha sa poder, ituloy mo lang ang pagtaguyod sa mga bagay na ikabubuti ng Dagupan. Doin’ good after 1 year ha!

PNOY, SHOULD NOT HAVE ACCEPTED RESIGNATION! Dapat hindi tinanggap ni Pnoy ang resignation ni Ombudsgirl Merci Gutierrez.

Hindi niya ngayon mapapatunayan ang kanilang pinagpaguran, pinag-gastusan at pinag-isipan kung anong mga kaso ang isasampa para ma-impeach si Ombudsgirl Merci.

Naghanda ang impeachment prosecutors ng mga bala para sa isang laban na ngayon ay hindi na matutuloy.

Hindi rin dapat sinabi ni PNoy na siya ay nabigla sa desisyon ni Ombuddsgirl Merci dahil ang resignation ay isa sa mga fallback ng akusadong Merci.

Magaling sa taktika si Merci.

Naiwan nabigla at nakatunganga ngayon ang impeachment team dahil wala silang napatunayan sa impeachment court.

PANGASINAN INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. Ang konsepto ni Bok Nani ay ang pagpapatayo ng Pangasinan International Airport sa Alaminos City ay hindi lang para sa Alaminos City o sa distirct one ng Pangasinan.

Ang Pangasinan International Airport ay para sa buong Pangasinan.

Katulad ng Gali-langoy na project ng Alaminos City, ito ay naghihikayat ng eco-adventure para sa mga turista na pumunta hindi lang sa Alaminos ngunit para sa mga pasyalan sa Pangasinan.

BOK NANI, may nakita na ako na baller band na nakasulat ay PangAsiNani.2013! Hehehe, alam kong walang kang kinalaman dito.

FIELD DAY IN ASINGAN: Farmers observe accelerated seed production


By Virgilio Sar. Maganes

ASINGAN- Framers of this town were treated to a “Field Day” in Toboy village here on April 29 to observe the successful palay seed growing under the Abono Partylist’s “Accelerated Certified Seed Production and Distribution in Pangasinan”.

Aside from Abono Partylist, the project is jointly undertaken by the municipal government of this town, Department of Agriculture, provincial government of Pangasinan and the Seed Quality Center.

The said project has four objectives: To sustain production and utilization of certified seeds, increase palay production, improve farmer’s/farm households income and attain self sufficiency and alleviate poverty.

Abono Partylist Rep. Robert Raymund “Eskimo” M. Estrella Jr. said during the brief program that palay certified seeds will soon be distributed in all barangays of the town following the success of the pilot projects on certified seed growing.

“I congratulate the seed growers for participating in this program and we hope to expand more on its coverage, to include the whole town and its barangays,” Estrella said.

Mayor Heide Ganigan-Chua lauded the Abono Partylist in bringing the project to her town which she said a move to further the agricultural development in her town and upgrade the quality of palay seeds for increased rice production.

OIC-Regional Executive Director Renato A. Maguigad of the Regional Field Unit I of the Department of Agriculture was equally impressed on the outcome of the program and promised his agency’s full support in its implementation.

Abono President Ponciano Onia Jr. presented to the farmers the overview of the project why it was conceptualized and implemented in the town.

There were 14 farmers who participated in the initial implementation of the seed growing of palay certified seeds. They were trained on seed growing technology and have a total area of 25 hectares planted for palay seed production.

The initial harvest involving 13.8 hectares revealed an average yield of 145.65 cavans per hectare with the highest harvest posted at 164 cavans per hectare by Cesario Escarlos of Domanpot village.

“We are glad to have participated in this project. We can improve the quality of palay seeds as well as increase our income. We thank the Abono Partylist and Mayor (Heide) Chua for their support,” said Romeo Jacob, a farmer-participant from Bobonan village.

The harvested palay seeds before they will be declared as “certified seeds” shall be evaluated by the Seed Quality Center of the Department of Agriculture (DA).

Others in attendance are Agriculture Asst. Regional Director Cris Bautista, Regional Rice Coordinator Edmund Quinit and Dr. Clarito M. Barron, Director of the Bureau of Plant Industry (BPI).

Irrigation projects to benefit 34,000 hectares – NIA

By Virgilio Sar. Maganes

ALCALA- About 34,450 hectares of farmlands will benefit from the re-regulating pond’s irrigation component once the project is completed.

This was bared by Project Manager Reynaldo Mencias of Agno River Integrated Irrigation Project of National Irrigation Administration (NIA-ARIIP).

Mencias said that the project which costs P11.2 billion and being constructed by the China CA, will cover the congressional districts of 3,4,5 and 6.

“The Agno River Irrigation System (ARIS) will cover more or less 26,850 hectares and the Ambayaoan-Dipalo River System will cover more or less 7,600 hectares, “ Mencias said.

He further said that the implementation of the re-regulating pond is already 50% complete and will be completed in 2013.

The re-regulating pond serves as a water reservoir of the San Roque Multi-purpose Dam and the source of water irrigation for farmlands along the Agno River and its tributaries.

Meanwhile, farmers along the Lower Agno River Irrigation System (LARIS) were worried when the irrigation flow of water to their farmlands were disrupted due to the giving way of irrigation intake structure at Sta. Maria when the Agno River Irrigation System conducted its drainage operation.

With the intervention of farmer-leaders, the problem was given immediate attention by Project Manager Reynaldo Mencias who said that his office cannot afford to leave the farms of the farmers along LARIS without irrigation water.

LARIS serves the towns of Rosales, Sto. Tomas and Alcala in Pangasinan and extends its services to San Manuel, Tarlac and Cuyapo, Nueva Ecija
