About this blog


I have come to understand that the BIR was formed with an honorable goal to help our country.

The BIR as an institution I believe with all certainty was created with that noble intention to support our Government in its quest in building a better nation.

Help build our nation. Pay your taxes.

  1. I commend your support to BIR. i agree that one impression about BIR is this is a corrupt agency. i actually just starting to read their website and base on their press releases they really run after tax evaders.

    that’s good thing to note.

  2. Good Day po. I have a question and i
    hope you can help me. My name is
    John.
    From Jan 2000 – Oct 2010 eh
    nagtrabaho ako sa isang pabrika sa Binan, Laguna.
    Nung 2009 po nag submit ako ng
    Form 2305 sa pabrikang pinapasukan
    ko para ilagay ang anak ko sa
    dependent at maging M1 ang tax
    status ko. Then Nov of 2010 lumipat po ako ng
    work sa isang call center sa Ortigas
    Pasig at pinagpasa ako ng HR ng BIR
    Form 1905 na pinatatakan ko sa
    previous RDO (San Pedro, Laguna) na
    nakakasakop sa dati kong trabaho. Yun po bang tax status ko na M1 sa
    previous RDO eh M1 pa din sa new
    RDO kahit Form 1905 lang ang pinasa
    ko sa current employer?
    Last January po kasi nadiscover ko na
    yung witholding tax na kinaltas sa akin ng current employer ko for the
    year 2011 was computed based on
    the tax table for M(Married w/out
    dependent) which I dont know kung
    bakit hindi M1 ang status na ginamit.
    Nung nagtanong ako sa HR kung bakit M lang ang tax status ko sa
    kanila, sinabi sa akin na kasi daw
    hindi ako nagbigay ng 2305 sa kanila.
    I told them na kaya hindi ako
    nagbigay ng 2305 eh kasi hindi
    naman nila nirequire nung nag aaply pa lang ako. Ive manage to found out
    ung 2305 ko na pinarecieved ko sa
    RDO San Pedro Laguna way back in
    2009 at pinakita ko ito sa HR.
    Sa sitwasyon ko, malinaw na me
    pagkakamali ang HR sa 2011 witholding tax ko at nung icalculate
    ko ang dapat na babayaran kong tax
    as M1 at ang tax na binawas ng HR sa
    income ko for the year as M eh may
    around Php5k na dapat irefund sakin
    pero ayaw irefund ng HR at Payroll kasi daw close na ung book nila for
    2011. Tama bang di nila ibalik ung sobrang
    pera na kinaltas nila sa akin? Ano po
    dapat ko gawin? Sayang din ung 5k.

    Thanks

    • Under sa policy ng BIR any refund shall be done by the EMPLOYER not BIR and likewise they will be penalize for any incorrect computation.

      Have your registration check with your BIR Branch. And get certification of your status as M1.

      Then talk with the head of your accounting regarding the matter. Sino ba talaga ang may pagkukulang. At kung sila dapat lang silang magrefund.

  3. Hello po. Married po with 2 dependent. Kakapasa ko lang bir form 2305 since ipinanganak ang bunso ko at malapit na siyang magdalawang taon. Makakapagrefund po ba ako ng over tax payment ko? Magkano ba dapat ang tax ko? Php455.00 kasi kinakaltas nila sa akin.

  4. Hi!, thanks for putting up this very informative blog. This has been really useful to me.

    I have a question and hopefully you can help me with this. I was separated from my previous job in August 2012 and got new Job on October of the same year. Unfortunately I was unable to submit my Form 2316 to my new employer before December 31, 2012. The HR told me to submit this form to BIR for they could not do this anymore for me.
    Kindly give me more detailed instructions on how to do this. Would I pay any amount when I submit this? What else would I submit apart from this Form?
    Thank you for your kind attention!

  5. Hi! Ask ko lang po regarding sa change status… Kumuha po kasi kami ng proprty sa manila para daw po ma turn over sa amin kelangan namin mag change status sa bir binigyan kami ng form 1905 pina verify namin sa bir tinatakan nman nila ng verified.kaya lang di pa na change status. Sa caloocan at manila RDO daw namin i follow up. Ang problema namin wala kaming kamag-anak sa manila na pwede namin pakisuyuan na mag asikaso…pwede ba mag pass ng form 2305 sa province kung san nakatira ung family ko dahil pareho kaming mag asawa nasa ibang bansa?

    Thank you in advance.

  6. My employer had for few years been using the company name to fill up “Employer name” in 2316 form ko, this year napansin ko mismo personal name ng employer ko instead ang gamit sa 2316 for me to sign , do i have to be worried about this? Single proprietor lang ang company ownership as of now. Pwede ba makatipid ang owner sa ginawa nya change? same pa rin company address po

    salamat po …
