In a Facebook post by Senator Bam Aquino last March 30, he announced the passage of RA 10754 into law, which allows more benefits for 1.4 million PWDs in the Philippines. The law promises tax exemption as well as tax incentives to taxpayers who care for PWDs in their homes up to the fourth civil degree of consanguinity or affinity.
GOOD NEWS! Naisabatas na ang Republic Act 10754 or “An Act Expanding The Benefits and Privileges of Persons With Disability”.
Sa batas na ito, madadagdagan ang mga benepisyo ng 1.4 milyong PWDs sa buong bansa sa ilalim ng RA 7277 o ang Magna Carta of PWDs. Maliban sa tax exemption, bibigyan din ng tax incentives ang mga taxpayer na may alaga o may PWD na kasama sa bahay, hanggang sa tinatawag na fourth civil degree of consanguinity or affinity. Pls. share the good news. Salamat! #BidaAngMamamayan #9thLaw
What everyone is waiting for is the official publication in nationally circulated newspapers and the IRR for the said law before the benefits for PWDs comes to fore.
