Thurs., Dec 16, 2011
Hi there, thank you for asking. Yes, Filipino freelancers should pay income tax. Who are they? Filipino freelancers are income earners residing in the Philippines and working as bloggers, bookkeepers, editors, graphic artists, proofreaders, transcriptionists, virtual assistants, web designers, writers, and other service providers receiving payment locally or internationally for the product or work they deliver on site (e.g., visiting consultant) or off site (e.g., home-based).
