Keri naman ng gobyerno! Imee Marcos seeks one-year VAT suspension on food, fuel, electricity


Ilocos Norte Governor Imee Marcos has appealed to President Duterte to suspend the value added tax (VAT) on certain commodities to give Filipinos a respite from high prices.

In a Facebook post, Marcos sought a one-year suspension of VAT on basic food items, oil products, and electricity.

“Sabi ni Ms. Imee, tsugihin muna ang VAT kahit isang taon lang dahil keri naman ng gobyerno,” the governor’s FB post read.

“Pwede namang ipangtakip muna sa mawawalang kita ng gobyerno ang hindi nagastos na pondo ng mga ahensya,” it added.
