Revenue Memorandum Circular (RMC) No. 114-2023

27 October 2023


This has reference to RMO No. 29-2022 with subject “Policies and Guidelines in the Conduct of Public Auction of Distrained Personal Properties, Seized/Levied Properties and Acquired Personal and Real Assets”.

It has been observed that several issues and concerns were raised by different Regional Offices regarding the procedures involved in the opening of an Escrow Account in relation to the auction sale of seized properties.

In this connection, please be informed that an RMO is being prepared to amend certain provisions of RMO No. 29-2022, particularly on the policies and procedures on the Conduct of Auction Sale of Seized Properties (Distrained Personal Properties and Levied Real Properties).

Accordingly, the setting up of an escrow account is temporarily being suspended while coordination with all concerned Government Agencies and Offices is being undertaken. All concerned offices which shall conduct a public action sale of seized properties are advised to follow existing procedures under the Collection Manual of 2011, pursuant to RMO 28-2012.

Further, procedures under RMO No. 29-2022 pertaining to Auction Sale of Acquired Assets shall still be in effect.
