Withholding Tax Table in the Philippines

Withholding Tax is the income tax deducted by the employer to his/her employees and is being paid directly to the government. From the word itself, it means it is being withheld or deducted from the recipient’s income.

The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) has issued Revenue Memorandum Circular (RMC) No. 105-2017 revising the withholding tax table on compensation pursuant to the amendments to the National Internal Revenue Code of 1997 as introduced by Republic Act (RA) 10963, otherwise known as the “Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) Law.”
