THE Action for Economic Reforms (AER) said it supports the call of senators and the private education sector for the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) to exempt private schools from the 25-percent tax rise.

In a statement, the AER noted that the newly signed Republic Act 11534, or "Corporate Recovery and Tax Incentives for Enterprises (Create) Act" temporarily cut the tax rates of proprietary educational institutions from 10 percent to 1 percent.
