Pay YourTaxes

       There is a lot of talk in the media about taxes lately. As an ordinary tax payer,  the first thing that comes into mind is the present level of basic services that we have.  I am not just convinced about the quality of the basic services extended by government. I do not disagree with paying taxes, but i definitely agree on having a better quality basic services in return. High taxes in advanced countries are fully enforced while the quality of life is better.

       The "pambasang kamao" was not spared from the controversial tax issue. The Bureau of Internal Revenue is after the pacman. Now the Internal Revenue of the US says the pacman has an unpaid taxes for the amount of US$18 million according to the latest news, if this is true, this is Php 796 million.  

       While taxes are automatically deducted from the common employee's salary, i would not trade places right now with the pacman even for a second. (",)
