“I am in favor of lowering the personal income tax to ease the burden of the public, specifically the labor force, and while we are supportive of broadening the Value Added Tax (VAT) and remove unsound and unjustifiable exemptions, we have to ensure the public that with such move, we will not sacrifice the benefits provided to the vulnerable and marginalized sectors of Senior Citizens and Persons with Disability (PWD)”, said Rep. Garbin.
