Ano ang pede maging benefits ng nagbabayad ng buwis (amilyar) at naninirahan sa lupa ng pinsan nya sa loob ng mahabang panahon? Salamat po

Translation: What benefits does a person living on the land/real estate property of his cousin have, if he/she is paying for the land taxes for a long time now?

Wala kundi ang maibalik ang mga ibinayad mo para sa buwis. Kaso, kung hihingin mong ibalik sa iyo ang iyong ibinayad para sa buwis, sisingilin ka naman ng renta para sa mahabang panahong pagkaka-tira mo sa lupa na walang bayad.

The fact na alam mong ang lupa ay sa iyo, kahit na daang libong taon ka pa tumira dito, dahil sa alam mong ito'y hindi sa iyo -- wala kang karapatan dito.
