Students in mad rush for free tuition
ILOILO City – Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) offices were flooded with parents and college students seeking tax exemption certification – one of the requirements for the government’s free tuition program.
At Revenue District Office (RDO) 74 in this city, a BIR officer who asked not to be named for lack of authority to speak on the matter said the deluge of parents and students beginning Friday last week caught them by surprise.
In a day, they could entertain a little over a hundred students or parents only, according to the officer.
They did not have enough personnel to attend to all these clients in just one day, the officer explained.
