  • Also, this bill seeks to amend Section 27(A) of the NIRC, as amended, to replace the unitary or single income tax rate with a graduated income tax schedule for corporate taxpayers similar to those provided for the individual taxpayers. The basis for adopting this tax system is to align income taxation for corporations with the constitutional mandate of a progressive system of taxation and the rule on uniform and equitable taxation.
  • It also seeks to amend Section 35(A) of the NIRC, as amended, by adjusting the basic personal exemption for each individual taxpayers from P50,000 to P150,000 to counter the steady increase of prices of consumer goods and services and to help our hardworking middle class in meeting the demands of daily living.
