With the much-awaited tax reform law that arrived this year.  A lot have dubbed it as a blessing to meet every family’s need while others have seen this as anti-poor drama that puts more taxes on the commodities.  Here are the Five Effects of TRAIN law to Filipinos.

Despite the melodramatic increase of many people in the social media about the bad effects of this law, a lot of people appreciated the more money they can get when receiving their salaries.  

“A simpler, fairer, and more efficient tax system is needed to promote investment, create jobs, and reduce poverty. Not reforming the tax system will deprive the poor of the necessary social services and infrastructure that can lift them out of poverty and make them more productive contributors to society.”
Carlos G. Dominguez
Secretary of Finance

  1. Wow I found this information interesting. Even though I am in the US it is neat to learn about what other countries are doing in their government.

  2. Without being an expert in the economy, it’s hard to know how changes will affect people. It’s helpful seeing the pros and cons laid out. I hope it does bring strength to the economy.

  3. I think these changes will definitely help the economy and will bring more money to the family. But it don’t matter what changes bring to the country , either it’s good for the economy or not there’s always people who will not like it .
