Ports in Zamboanga Peninsula (Region 9) provinces, more importantly in cities of Dapitan and Pagadian, used to pay duties and taxes to Misamis Occidental in Ozamiz City. This changed until the signing of an administrative order by Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez 3rd and Customs Commissioner Rey Leonardo Guerrero this month, June 2019.

Zamboanga City Bureau of Customs district collector Segundo Bart said, as with the signing of the administrative order, that provinces and cities in Region 9 should instead remit their duties and taxes to Zamboanga City port, where they are geographically located.

The set-up where ports in Zamboanga pay taxes in Northern Mindanao made Barte to appeal to the government to take the appropriate action to "correct" the uncommon arrangement, according to a report by The Manila Times.

Accordingly, the Zamboanga Port is expected “to collect close to P430 million this year.
