So if you are computing your 2020 and 2021 income tax, you must now use and apply this new tax table.

The Department of Finance also propose tax reforms for estate tax amnesty, general tax amnesty, amendments to bank secrecy law, lower estate and donor’s tax rates, lower rates on transaction taxes on land, limit on VAT zero-rating to direct exporters, rationalization of fiscal incentives, VAT refund in cash, harmonization of capital income tax rates on deposits, investments, dividends, equities and other passive income to 10% and increase on stock transaction tax from 0.5% to 1%.

Package 1 has started in 2018 while Package 2 which tackles introduction and implementation of Corporate Income Tax has a timeline from 2018 to 2019.

TRAIN Tax Calculator Sample

From the new Tax Table above, we got a sample following income computations.

If taxable income for the year for example resulted to 1,000,000, tax due will be 190,000.

1,000,000 falls under the 800,000 lower limit bracket. Basic amount will be 130,000. The excess 200,000 should be multiplied by 30%. You’ll get 60,000. Therefore,

130,000 + 60,000 = 190,000 tax due

Individuals Earning Purely Compensation Income shall be taxed on the income tax rates prescribed above.

There is an increased threshold for non-taxable 13th month pay and other benefits, from 82,000, it is now 90,000.

Taxable income for compensation earners is the gross compensation income less non taxable income/benefits such as but no limited to the 13th month pay and other benefits de minimis benefits and employee’s share in the SSS, GSIS, PHIC, Pagibig contributions and union dues.

Husband and wife shall compute their individual income tax separately based on their own taxable income; if any income cannot be attributed to or identified as income exclusively earned by either of the spouses, the same shall be divided equally between the spouses.

Minimum wage earners shall be exempt from the payment of income tax based on their statutory minimum wage rates. Holiday pay, overtime pay, night shift differential pay and hazard pay received by minimum wage earners are likewise exempt.

  1. I have a small business earning less than 250K a year, does this mean I am exempted from paying taxes? It is registered in BIR and been paying non-VAT tax for a year now. Hope you can shed light on this. Thanks!

  2. Will the HMO be taxable this 2019 against the 90,000? Or will the initial ruling that it is already scrap continue? Thank you!

  3. I just want to point out that DOF has not yet used the latest contribution table for SSS for their online tax calculator, correct me if I’m wrong but as of today (August 29) it’s still using the old contribution table computation which makes the ” Income Tax” calculation a bit inconsistent/wrong.

    I want to reach out to them but I chose to create an updated income tax calculator myself so we get the most updated computation.

    • I don’t understand why do we have to file Taxes.
      The BIR doesn’t care if your taxes or collected, let me share my story…

      I wasn’t given a 2316 by my former employer, so I filed a complaint to the Local RDU…
      They told me:
      “Go ask your employer, we can’t issue that for you”
      I left a letter addressed to the District Officer
      I never got a reply …

      So frustrated, I went to the Regional Investigation Office, showed him my papers,
      He said, “There’s no taxes deducted, I can’t help you”

      Next, I went to the BIR Main Office, expressed my complaint..
      They said, “Go to the RDU where your company is at”

      I still haven’t got my 2316 for 2019.

  7. I am a government employee. During my free time I am doing a consultancy services. At present I am working with a project due this April. My professional fee will be 70,000 equivalent to 19 days of work. How much tax will I pay?

    Reply
  8. If I earn below 250k, that means my tax would be at 0%. Do I still need to “file” it or not? I’m new to the workforce and haven’t paid tax ever, don’t even have a TIN card yet. Not even SSS, Philhealth, etc… Do I just not do anything or filling even at 0% is still needed?

    Reply
    • Depends. If you are professional, freelance individual, sole proprietor, YES. You still need to file your ITR even your income fall at 0% or no tax due to pay. Only employed individual who does not need to file because of the substituting filing.

    • I think you need to go to your nearest BIR offices then inform the frontliner about your lost TIN number. They will just generate it to their system and ask you to get an affidavit of lost to replace your TIN
