  1. Wait, what? Exempt naman talaga, di ba? Kailangan lang ifile ang tamang dokumento. Ganyan naman basta income earned by a resident citizen from another country. Bakit kailangan pa ng bagong law?-Baklang CPA na nagmigrate na sa Amerika

    2. Not exempt dear. Winnings from PCSO Lotto lang ang exempt. Kailangan pa din nya magfile. Tapos idededuct lang sa tax payable nya yung tax paid sa ibang bansa. Kung zero ang net edi wala syang babayaran. Kung hindi, may babayaran pa din sya. She still needs to file. Baklang CPA, magre-take ka!

    3. Kelangan daw ni Pia yung money pambili ng magandang gown

    4. No. Still taxable because PIA is a resident-citizen. Taxable within and outside PH. The documents will be the basis for tax credits. Taxable - taxing it - and tax credits - reducing the liability - are two different things.

    5. Nope. Tama sila. Not exempted and then deducted lang if properly documented na bayad ng foreign tax.

      I think what people gets confused about Manny and Pia is that though they give pride to our country via their wins, dahil they are trained and sponsored by private sector like Bob Arum and BB. Pilipimas charity, they are still taxable of course. If Manny Pacquiao though joined in a sports competition that's hosted/promoted/funded by the national government tapos ipapadala sa ibang bansa as official national representatives, then it would exempt. Like if gobyerno gumastos ng trainor, renta sa gym, uniform tapos, etc. tsaka nanalo eh di walang tax. Obvious ba? Pinondohan na nga ng gobyerno para maisali at manalo tapos tataxan pa pag nanalo? Wala namang dedication gobyerno natin sa sports para pondohan at makapagproduce ng Manny Pacquiao kundi pa mag Top Rank promotions. Look at Michael Martinez :( Wala ring National commission for Beauty Pagaent na magpopondo, magtetrain at magpapadala ng representatives sa international beauty contests. Sad pero kundi pa sunod sunod na nagexcel ang ating BB. Pilipinas representatives, di pa nila maiisip iexempt. Di nila pag aaksayahang pondohan ang beauty pagaents. Siyempre negosyo pa rin ang labas in the form of BB. Pilipinas Charity and Top Rank.

    6. What baklang CPA is saying is kung hindi finayl ta-tax-an sya dito. Kung nagfile eh di bongga.

    7. Baklita, filipino citizen siya kaya kahit income earned outside philippines eh taxable. Ano bey madam. Kaya nagppush sila nyang exemption

  2. Dapat gawin nang for all Ms U, World, International, Earth (Big 4). In Latin American Countries maliban sa tax exemption may cash prize pa na $1mil, pero obviously hindi realistic yung amount na yun sa Phils. Pero kahit anong amount man lang, they truly deserve it.

  4. May diperensya talaga sa tax systems ng pinas. Tayo pinakamataas na vat in the region, but still third world country. Bakit? Kasi ang daming tax exemptions particularly in business affiliated in churches and foundations. Tapos kung maningil at magbawas ng tax sa mamamayan at negosyante eh sobrang laki at takutan pa. Pero san napupunta? Sa bulsa ng mga pulitikong napaka-amo tuwing eleksyon! Pero sino ang may kasalanan kung bakit nanakawan ang pinas? Syempre ang mga pinoy din mismo. Lagi tayong nananakawan ng mga corrupt pero every elections we still keep on voting the same names. Anyway, good for Queen Pia, non-taxable ang pera nya. At least hindi naglaway ang mga pulitikong toh sa premyo nya.

    1. Mas malaki kasi winnings ni manny, mas titiba ang bulsa ng mga buwaya.

    2. I'm guessing it's because cash prize yung kay Pacquiao, whereas Pia's prizes are mostly in kind (e.g., crown, residence, wardrobe, beauty products). It's easier to deduct tax from cash prize kesa maglalabas ka pa ng pera pambayad sa prizes mo that are in kind. (Parang yung mga audience members lang dati sa Oprah na "binigyan" niya ng free cars. Oprah classified the cars as "prizes" instead of "gifts". So napilitan pa tuloy silang magbayad ng tax for the supposedly "free" cars. Napagastos pa sila nang di inaasahan.)

    2. Si Manny first and foremost lumalaban para sa money. Subukan mo wala yung $20mil niya kung mag pa bugbog yan. Secondary nalang sa kanya yung for Pride of the Country. Kaya nga monsan di natutuloy laban ni money pag hindi sila magkasundo sa hatian sa prize money ng kalaban niya.

    3. Because Manny Pacquiao is Money Pacquiao. And Mommy D is Money D!

    4. 3:03 Lahat naman ng athletes secondary lang yung pride of the country. Haha! It's their training, and it's their hard work, therefore it's their achievement. It's not really for the country that they're representing. #realtalk

  8. Bakit si manny pacquaio hindi nyo hinawan ng ganyan. He has brought honors to our country multiple times. Yet kahit isang beses wala kayo ginawang resolution!!!! Pulitika nga naman

  10. To those asking about Manny: feeling ko lang (feeeeeeeling) si Manny has a lot of opportunities to make money. Hindi naman one time lang ang laban nya eh. Si Pia, her reign is just for a year and she can only win a beauty pageant once. Kung makahakot siya ng project after her reign, pwede na siya i tax.

  11. Bakit kailangan i-exempt? It's a beaucon na kung saan nakakasali din ang mga retokada(at nananalo). Kung ung mga scientist kaya natin ang i-exempt niyo sa tax para di masayang talino nila.

    2. So true. And ikauunlad pa ng banyan. Hindi naman sa sourgraping, I am very very proud of Pia and appreciate her hardwork, but what about Aisa Mijeno who invented a lamp that can be ran by only salt and water? She was even invited in the APEC forum and had an opportunity to talk to President Obama? Where is her tax exemption? Her invention brought more pride to the country and was even acknowledged by Obama!

  16. i don't really get it kung bakit yung mga tao na nagbibigay ng karangalan sa bansa natin bakit kelangan may tax pa kung tutuusin dapat competition naman yan. i mean like sir manny pacquiao nakikipag suntukan, nakataya ang buhay niya sa ibabaw ng ring para lang mabigyan ng karangalan ang naghihikahos na bansa natin. bakit kelngan pa May i tax yung mga ganun. siguro kung sa mga business niya kelngan talaga yun. pero yung sa sariling laban sigiro dapat exempted.

  17. May mga sense at kapaki pakinabang ang pinagbibisihan ng mga pulitiko natin ah mag mapalit ng pera, magpalit ng pangalan ng streets ngayon naman mag exempt ng tax. Icareer nyo yan ha. Please lang icareer nyo yan!

  18. Sa laki ng tax na babayaran or binayaran ni Pia dito sa US ano na lang matitira sa prize nia if magbayad pa siya tax diyan sa Pinas. Kaya buti naman if eexempt siya.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yung nagtatanong bakit si Manny di exempted, i guess it's because boxing is his profession, ito talaga isang occupation nya. unlike Pia, her reign as Miss Universe is only limited for 1 year. she will always be a beauty queen but it's not every year that she will compete and get a prize. Manny, however, trains for a fight at least 2x a year and either win or lose, he will always have a prize money with him.
    ito ay opinion ko lang and this is just how i see things between the 2 of them.

  20. bakit ieexempt? kaming mga nagtatrabaho super laki ng tax kakarampot ang sahod. Di ikakahirap ni Pia yan at magiging role model pa siya if she declares her actual income and pays the correct taxes.

  22. They have done this to PIA kasi election. not to MANNY kasi tapos or hindi election?. Their cases are the same.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Manny's prizes are in cash. Pia's prizes are in kind. Tama lang na hindi nila singilin si Pia.

    Kung nanalo ng cash prize si Pia, okay lang bawasan ng tax. Pero dahil non-monetary ang mga napanalunan niya, she shouldn't be paying for them.

  24. bakit tayo di exempted? eh bayani rin tayo ng bansang ito sa kakanda kuba natin sa trabaho. kakapiranggot na nga lang kita natin... hay naku pilipinas.

  25. ako masya ako para ke pia pero please lang umay na puros laman ng balita si pia. heller beauty contest p napnalunan nya at hindi naman xa nakapag imbento ng ikakaunlad nga ating bansa. tama na yung concept ng double taxation -net na lng babayaran niya dito kung meron man. please lng move on na tayo sa mas importanteng issue like bakit ngaun wala pa ring hustisya ang ampatuan massacre or SAF 44

  27. Kailangan na lang ng mga dokumento from IRS ng US na nagsasaad na nabayaran na ang tax ng prizes ni Pia sa Amerika.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Papogi lang yung tax exemption resolution ng mga politikong mangga na ito. Bayad na ang tax sa US IRS noh. Hindi rin pwedeng buwisan yung DIC crown niya dahil hindi naman kay Pia yun kundi sa MUO. Ipapasa ni Pia yun sa next MU hindi tulad dati na inuuwi talaga yung crown after the reign.

  29. Kapag naman kasi nakakapagdala ng karangalan sa Pilipinas like Miss Universe Pia W. at mga iba pang atleta hwag na po silang pagbayarin ng tax.
