Paying for the yearly community tax either at the municipal office or at one's barangay hall is part of an income earner's routines. The computation of this tax is based on the "gross receipts or earnings derived from exercise or pursuit of any occupation," that is, one peso for every thousand (PhP1 per PhP1,000), or simply compute 0.1% of your gross annual income. So, for instance, if your gross income for the previous year is PhP200 thousand, then your community tax is PhP200.
