  1. Responsibility natin lahat yan although... it's depressing to do our part in paying, and it looks better if you invest on SSS, pag-ibig, mutual funds instead of paying taxes. Taxes are suppose to help us.

  2. 8% is an option in filing an income tax return.it is based on the gross receipts/sales and other non operating income.with this selection you are choosing otherwise the graduated income tax rates and the pcercentage tax, thus only the creditable income withholding tax based o the prescribed rate.

  3. Yes. In BPO (when I was with one of the BPO companies).. I was deducted almost 5,000 a month. Mabigat po yan. 2017 po yan. Kaya nag resign na din ako. kasi wala din ako naiipon. and nakakasama PA ng loob nung humihingi ako ng support (ayuda) from the govenrnment.. I was required na DAPAT I am one of the "poorest from the poor"...

  4. filing an ITR is a no brainer now po kasi on line na lang and payments are done on line.so you dont need to fall in line in any BIR offices. I pay it thru Gcash lang so walang huzzle po

  5. seriously speaking filling of ITR for freelancers is more of honestly, because there is not concrete policy or guidelines to mandate the filling of tax return. The govt is starting to look on this already since this pandemic because a lot are into freelancing or on line jobs now.

  6. in fairness with the BIR they also increase the exemption brackets to protect low or starter earner from hefty tax dues, we only need to educate ourselves or familiar
    ourselves with the BIR regulations

  7. Paying taxes - Pros: 1. You can help the govt as a citizen of the Phils. 2. ITR's are required by banks when you apply for a loan and credit card.
    Cons: 1. BIR imposes penalties for non-submission of BIR forms regardless of w/ or w/o tax dues. 2. Additional cost
