Philippines Income Tax that kills

tax

It is really crazy how the Philippines Government handle the income tax, I have worked in Taiwan and never had this much of income 32%??? I only pay 6% on my monthly tax with my basic salary and still can receive tax refund even if I filed family support on my tax filing. Shame on our government, it is OK for paying this much of tax if we can see any changes in our economy but is there any changes? I am living in Binan and needs to drive to work to Paranaque everyday and I only travels few kilometers in highway but needs to pay a lot of toll fee, is this reasonable? I think we are the only country that needs to pay expensive toll fees whether you are in NLEX or SLEX which is killing those who are driving on those highway. Taiwan is a progressive country but never collected this kind of excessive fees. It seems like we are working our ass off and letting the government to have our hard earned money every month. Philippines Government should think about this and reform this kind of crazy stuffs that are making the Filipinos suffer.

Recently I came across the social media about a foreigner who have traveled almost all the cool places in Philippines. I went to his facebook page and there are lots of my “Kababayan” have liked and commented on his page. I can say that he is a great blogger who have written about the places he have been and all the Filipinos loved him for featuring Philippines in his blog. He is Nathan Allen and can find his blog here.

He even loved by more Filipinos when he defended Philippines on the blog of other foreigners who have visited Philippines and had negative comments about the foods in Philippines. He is now featured in media and created a place in the heart of every Filipinos.

Great job Nathan and thank you for featuring lot of places in Philippines even I didn’t have  chance to visit. My wife and I may plan to visit some of the places that you have featured when I get home.
