Keep the Change

Dear insansapinas,
Ah makulit na talaga ako ha. Question ko kasi, alam ba nila talaga ang ginagawa nila sa BIR ? Kahapon yong inventory. Weeks ago yong receipt para sa mga small vendors at pedicab drivers para masingil sila ng income tax. Ngayon naman, keep the change, toll fee.

Recto questions BIR move to round off VAT on toll

MANILA, Philippines—Sen. Ralph Recto Thursday questioned the unilateral move of the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) to round off the value-added tax (VAT) on toll to the nearest peso, which he said was illegal.

Revenue Commissioner Kim Jacinto-Henares, however, felt that the issue was trivial.
“If you want to line up to get the exact change from toll fees, it will cause a one-hour traffic. Everything is not an exact science, the Toll Regulatory Board (TRB) is trying to be accommodating. You cannot please everyone, this is the best way,” Henares said at the hearing of the Senate ways and means committee.
Recto said there was also the question of receipts for drivers and commuters who planned to reimburse their VAT payments.
The BIR normally does not require official receipts with the names of taxpayers for small amounts, according to Henares.
Sen. Franklin Drilon pointed out that Henares’ claim that the excess collection from rounding off the VAT on toll would be placed in an escrow account to be managed by the TRB was illegal.
“The toll fees collected are public funds and only Congress can appropriate public funds. This is an illegal exaction and worse an illegal disbursement,” Drilon said. Gil Cabacungan Jr.

Para ba itong yong imbes na pera, candy ang ibibigay saiyo.
Usually, may nakahanda ng mga change dapat diyan, sorted to different denominations. Ang ibang cashier, di na kailangang tingnan ang coins, alam na nila.

Walang isang milyon kung walang barya.Pero bakit ba mahilig silang kumulekta ng barya-barya?
