Cops paid P6.1B income taxes in 2020 – Sinas

THE Philippine National Police (PNP) last year remitted total of P 6,108,152,968.49 to the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) representing the individual income taxes of 224,189 uniformed and non-uniformed personnel of the force, PNP chief, General Debold M. Sinas announced yesterday.

“All PNP personnel religiously fulfill our annual tax obligations to fund government expenditure for healthcare services, public education, infrastructure development, food security, social services and defense,” the top cop said.

Citing reports from PNP Finance Service director, Brigadier Gen. Jose Melencio C. Nartatez Jr, Gen. Sinas said the PNP is “consistently among the top tax payers in the BIR Revenue District Office 040”.

Individual income taxes are automatically deducted from the monthly payroll accounts of PNP personnel in the form of taxes withheld. These withheld taxes are remitted by PNP to BIR as agency obligations, Nartatez explained.

Each individual PNP tax payer paid an average of Php27, 245 income taxes in Fiscal Year 2020, the official said.
