FILIPINOS can now easily pay for their tax and social security dues using their PayMaya accounts from the safety and comfort of their homes, the digital financial services company said.

“We at PayMaya are excited to work with more national government agencies and local government units towards those same goals” said Orlando B. Vea, founder and chief executive of PayMaya.

For payment of dues to the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), convenience fees are waived when taxpayers use the Pay Bills section of the app. They also get a chance to earn up to 100% cashback when they pay their fees using their PayMaya accounts via the Social Security System (SSS) mobile app.

PayMaya has also enabled more government agencies and units with the ability to accept card and e-wallet payments as the country accelerates digital efforts because of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.

These agencies and units include the Pag-IBIG Fund, Department of Trade and Industry, the Professional Regulation Commission, the Department of Science and Technology, the Department of Foreign Affairs, the National Home Mortgage Finance Corp., and the City of Valenzuela.

PayMaya has also partnered with the Department of Transportation and the Land Transport Regulatory and Franchising Board to equip public utility vehicles such as taxis, buses, and ride-hailing service providers with cashless payments acceptance for commuters.
