Bacolod City, Philippines Tuesday, August 28, 2018
Bacolod govít urged to assist 25
families evicted from Lupit Bridge

Not just loss of homes but also livelihood opportunities.

This was the claim of Kadamay Negros over what happened to the 25 families after their houses, dangerously located under the Lupit Bridge in Bacolod, were demolished a month ago. They are now calling for the city government to provide them a proper venue to continue their livelihood, of making lumpia wrappers to sell in various towns in the province.

Kadamay Negros secretary-general Berlita Ante said in an interview yesterday that their situation was worse after more than a month since a team from the Bacolod City Legal Office demolished their illegal structures in the riverbank under the Lupit Bridge.

DOF submits remaining tax
reform packages to Congress

MANILA - The Department of Finance has made good on its commitment to submit to Congress the remaining packages of the Duterte administration’s comprehensive tax reform program (CTRP), whose overriding goal is to make Philippine taxation fully transparent, more efficient and a lot simpler especially for ordinary Filipinos and small businesses.

Finance Undersecretary Karl Kendrick Chua said the first CTRP package - the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion, or Train Law - was designed to provide hefty personal income tax cuts for 99 percent of Filipinos and raise supporting funds to enable the government to spend big on infrastructure and human capital development.

The second package is meant to fix the flawed corporate taxation system that has generally favored a select group of corporations and barred both the national and local governments from generating a commensurate level of revenues from certain businesses and individuals, he said.
