When do you pay your annual real property tax?
Sec. 60 of the Real Property Tax Code (or PD No. 464) states:
“Payment of real property taxes in installments. — Real property taxes may, in the discretion of the taxpayer, be paid without penalty in four equal installments; the first installment to be due and payable on or before March thirty-first; the second installment, on or before June thirty; the third installment, on or before September thirty; and the last installment, on or before December thirty-first, except the special levies authorized under Sections forty-seven and fifty-five of this Code which shall be governed by the local ordinance or Department Order issued by the Secretary of Finance, as the case may be.”
For taxpayers who choose to pay the entire year’s real property tax within the first quarter, there are discount incentives.
