The Philippine National Police has remitted a total of P6,108,152,968 to the Bureau of Internal Revenue for the income tax of its personnel for the fiscal year 2020.
PNP chief, Gen. Debold Sinas, said yesterday that this represents the individual income taxes of 224,189 uniformed and non-uniformed personnel.
“All PNP personnel religiously fulfill our annual tax obligations to fund government expenditure for healthcare services, public education, infrastructure development, food security, social services, and defense,” he added.
Sinas said the PNP is “consistently among the top taxpayers in the BIR Revenue District Office 040.”
Individual income taxes are automatically deducted from the monthly payroll accounts of PNP personnel in the form of taxes withheld.
These withheld taxes are remitted by PNP to BIR as agency obligations.
Each PNP taxpayer paid an average of P27,245 in income taxes for fiscal year 2020.*PNA
