Tarlac City is a 3rd class city in the province of Tarlac, Philippines. It is the capital city of Tarlac.According to the 2000 census, it has a population of 262,481 people in 51,703 households.

Tarlac upgrade to cityhood started way back in 1996, with the filing of a bill in Congress to convert the town into a component city. House Bill No. 6863 was passed on November 17, 1997, subsequently; Senate Bill No. 2340 was approved on February 23, 1998. Then, on April 18, 1998, through a plebiscite the citizenry overwhelmingly supported the conversion of Tarlac town into a component city with affirmative votes of 21,378 out of 26,020 votes. It was proclaimed as a component city on April 19, 1998 by virtue of Republic Act No. 8593 to be known as the City of Tarlac.


Its present leaders, led by the Honorable Mayor Genaro M. Mendoza, together with all his co-workers in the city government can stand tall and proud of Tarlac’s 2000 years of glorious history as a source of inspiration to aspire and work only for the best, because Tarlac City deserves no less than the best.
