Zamboanga Peninsula taxes paid at BoC port

ZAMBOANGA CITY: With the signing of an adminstrative order by Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez 3rd and Customs Commissioner Rey Leonardo Guerrero, the provinces of Zamboanga Peninsula now pay duties and taxes at the Bureau of Customs (BoC) port here.

Before this, Zamboanga City BoC district collector Segundo Barte said the Zamboanga Peninsula (Region 9) provinces — Zamboanga del Norte, Zamboanga Sibugay and Zamboanga del Sur, and their component cities of Dipolog, Pagadian and Dapitan — were paying duties and taxes to Misamis Occidental in Ozamiz City, which geographically belongs to Northern Mindanao (Region 10).

This unusual set-up prompted Barte to appeal to higher authorities to take the appropriate action to correct the uncommon arrangement.
