The LRA has given up to July first this year, for all officials of Government and public sector employees to clear their Real Property Tax obligations.
The LRA has tabled several remedial actions if officials failed to meet the July First deadline, including restrictions on duty-free privileges enjoyed by public officials and publication of names of delinquent officials.
