ZAMBOANGA CITY: Several owners of local business establishments were sanctioned for reportedly refusing or failing to comply with financial discounts and value added tax (VAT) for their senior citizen (SC) patrons, a local Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) officer said. City DSWD chief Uldarico Fabian, however, did not identify the erring establishments or their owners for their protection and their specific penalties for allegedly violating Republic Act (RA) 9994 or the “Expanded Senior Citizen Act 2010.” Fabian said in a recent Regional Inter-Agency Committee conference that “owners of companies or stores who either refuse or fail to honor the mandated discounts may face a jail term of not less than six years and a fine of not less than P5,000 as per RA 9994.”
