The Revenue Regulation 11-2018 issued last March 15, 2018 has certain provisions in regards to real property issues.  Here are the details:

 

A house and lot that is given as a fringe benefit to an employee by an employer is now taxed at 35% of the gross monetary value of the property.

 

Mutual fund dividends is now subject to a final withholding tax of 10% if one chooses to withdraw his or her shares.

 

If one is renting a real property for business purposes, tax rate is 5%.  The landlady/landlord of freelance contractors will be responsible for paying for this tax.

 

Let’s analyze these situations.  Haha --- oops I was about to utter my third ha! when, suddenly, my inbox vomited a new bill -- coming from my internet provider.
