MALUNGON, Sarangani Province – Residents and business entrepreneurs from this municipality can now pay for dues to the local government faster online through the digital payment facility of the Land Bank of the Philippines (LANDBANK).
The Municipal Government of Malungon has partnered with the state-owned Bank for the integration of the LANDBANK Link.BizPortal to its own website, which offers a wide range of local public services.

“This is the first in Sarangani to fully implement online payments. So, tell your relatives, your neighbors, that we have a new added service to make it more convenient for the people of Malungon to pay their taxes. We thank LANDBANK in bringing the service closer to every home in Malungon,” said Mayor Constantino.
