THE Philippine National Police (PNP) on Friday said that it had already remitted P3.5 billion to the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) as income tax collection for 2012.
PNP Public Information chief, Sr. Supt. Reuben Theodore Sindac said the amount remitted to BIR was individual taxes withheld from PNP personnel in 2012.
The police official said total taxes withheld by the PNP in 2012 amounted to P3,533, 437,605.58 from the 148,000-strong police force.
The police official said an average of P23,874.57 tax was withheld per individual PNP personnel.
The withholding Tax on Compensation is tax amount withheld from salaries of individuals receiving purely compensation income.
Sindac said in the PNP, individual tax withheld is automatically deducted from the monthly salary of police personnel.
The taxes withheld become obligations of the PNP to BIR that is remitted to the account of the tax collection agency every year.
