Sen. Mar Roxas says NO to text tax

Friday, January 11, 2008 | posted in , , , , , | 0 comments

A Government plan to impose tax on text messages drew immediate criticism from Congress and consumers.

"The government is rubbing salt into the wound by first rejecting a bill to suspend the [value-added tax] on oil products, and then expressing openness to tax another daily-life necessity—texting,” said Senator Mar Roxas, chairman of the committee on trade and commerce.
Roxas accused the government of being insensitive by entertaining a tax on popular text messaging services on mobile phones, while refusing to suspend the 12 percent tax on petroleum products.
