Hagåtña, Guam – Today, Acting Governor Josh Tenorio directed the Department of Revenue and Taxation (DRT), upon the commencement of the All RISE application process, to accept applications without mayors’ verifications but otherwise satisfy all other requirements and to verify the residency of applicants with mayors after applications are submitted. When the application process opens, DRT will ask applicants to indicate their village of residence and work with mayors to verify residency in the order of application submission.
“I am confident that this process will alleviate the increased demand for residency verifications at mayors’ offices,” said Acting Governor Tenorio. “We will continue to find ways to direct aid in the most effective and impactful ways so that our island can rebuild better than before.”
