May batas din po tayo na kapag hindi ginagamit ang lupa ay papatawan kayo ng 5% idle land tax. Nais ko rin pong ipaalala sa inyo na kailangan kayong magbayad ng property Tax. Nawa po ay pagyamanin at mahalin natin ang ating lupa para pagdating ng panahon ay may magamit pa ang ating mga pamilya. MABUHAY Marinduque".
