The Bureau of Customs will not charge duties for one electronic item that OFWs will bring in the country in the spirit of Christmas.
According to Custom Commissioner Lito Alvarez he has told his collectors, examiners, and appraisers to be more considerate to our Balikbayans and vacationing Overseas Filipino Workers.
Normally there is an Ad Valorem tax imposed on electronic items that costs more than Php 10,000.
This is quite a nice Christmas present coming from the Bureau of Customs.
But sirs and madams, can we increase the number of tax free items to five?
Anyway, an early Merry Christmas from us. *Smiles*
