• MORE BENEFITS FOR THE ELDERLY PUSHED

    0

    A resolution expanding the benefits for senior citizens of Quezon City Council has been approved. It was filed by 5th District Councilor Karl Edgar Castelo, where the city council is urging the Congress of the Philippines to further amend the existing senior citizen law that presently gives the elderly a 20-percent discount and exemption from the value-added tax (VAT) on the sale of medicines, goods and services from all establishments for their exclusive use and enjoyment. Castely said the shortlist of privileges that the senior citizen enjoy is not enough to compensate their long years of hard work in establishing the country’s economy, setting up a strong cultural foundation and positive values that the young generations enjoy.
