Text in the envelope: Ma’m and Sir, Pwede po bang makahingi ng konting tulong para sa aming pag aaral?
In the company where I work, we have this Tax Annualization which kicks off every October. The objective is to close the gap between an employee’s tax due and tax withheld.
The tax annualization thing took almost half of my salary every cut-off, which should have been used for my baby’s diapers, perhaps. But no, it went somewhere I can’t see. Taxes should be used for the betterment of our living. But how come we have these?
Road constructions are left for weeks. These causes lots of headache specially for people who drive because they causes traffic. No, let me correct that. Heavy traffic! Aside from that, you know that bumpy roads hurt your car right? Did I already mentioned that such deep holes left unfinished can also give homes to mosquitoes? They can also cause lots of accidents. Ay yay yay!
I just don’t get it why our government has this tendency of starting things and not finishing them.
And if our taxes are being used properly, why do we have lots of beggars? Homeless people: infants, kids, oldies, everywhere! Some, if not most of them, use their kids to beg for food or money.
As I told my hubby about this sad reality, my eyes were almost teary when he shared to me how much his tax was. His was almost as big as my salary for a month! I was luckier.
