Sen. Migz Zubiri Criticizes Plan to Tax Online Sellers

Senator Migz Zubiri criticized the plans of the government to tax online micro and small businesses in the country because it is not only insensitive but totally unnecessary.



According to the senator the online sellers should not be tax because of the fact that these sellers are trying to survive during this time of a Pandemic and to harass them on their last means of income is heartless to say the least.



The senator warned that those with devious minds planning these tax schemes will have little or no support at the Senate for these measures.

Sen. Zubiri suggested instead of taxing online sellers he suggested that his colleagues should make shure to tax heavily the controversial POGO industry thats growing within our country like a virus.

The veteran lawmaker suggested that the government should slap a heavy excise or Franchise tax on top of the income tax charged to POGO operations.

Read the Complete Statement of Sen. Migz Zubiri:

The plan to tax online micro and small and micro businesses is not only insensitive but totally uncessary. Hindi naman tama yan, kawawa naman yung maliliit na negosyante na hirap na hirap na. First of all many of thse online sellers are trying to survive during this time of a Pandemic and to harass them on their last means of income is heartless to say the least.



Those with devious minds planning these tax schemes will have little or no support at the Senate for these measures. I Myself, together with like minded Senators will make sure of that an instead propose we tax heavily the Pogo industry thats growing within our country like a virus.

Lets slap a heavy excise or Franchise tax on top of the income tax charged to them. Why make our small enterprising and entrepreneurial Pinoys suffer from the threat of taxation and allow foreign Pogo operators to operate while evading or under paying their taxes. We understand that our government needs revenue but we must focus on what's important, on which industry needs government support to survive as well as which industry could share the burden. Definitely taxing small online businesses who are trying to survive is not the answer.
