On Paying Your Tax

July 9th, 2010
Give back to Ceasar what is Cesar’s and to God what is God’s. This is what God commanded us in Luke 20:25. For as long as we live in this world we are subject to the laws of the countries where we are. We submit to the authority and the law… and that include PAYING OUR TAXES. Sad to say, in the country where I belong only the average citizen are diligently paying taxes. We have no choice since our income tax is withheld every payday.

According to a recent study by the Transparency International shows that for every P2,000 tax collectible, only P1,000 is actually collected because P500 goes to corruption and collusion, while the remainder goes to “defects” in collection. Whew! I guess the present administration of the newly elect President Noynoy Aquino would focus more on the various taxation issues in our country.

Anyway, talking about tax, how I wish our system is as stable and strict as that of other countries. In United kingdom for example , tax refund are made easier. There are lots of uk tax back online sites which guarantee the protection of tax refund. How I wish we local sites here where we can easily calculate our tax refund for free.Calling the Bureau of Internal Revenue!
