|This is me, busy with my small business a sari-sari store.|
After that, I was the one who process all my taxes, because I want to learn how to do it myself and not to hire anyone who doesn't care and just want money from your pocket. This year it just took me 2 days and I was done with all my renewal of my business permits, I was happy, last year it took me almost a week to finish it. But I'm not yet done, I have my disappointments and complaints. This year was not so good for my business, for almost a month we closed the store because my nephew contracted Dengue Fever and had to spend time in the hospital. Because of this, my sales for the entire year is just half compared to my sales in 2009. Foolishly, I thought maybe my taxes that I will pay this year would not be as much as last year. I was wrong! The taxes were more than last year! it so unfair, my taxes are higher, even though my sales were less last year. They did not even look at my book of accounts to see my sales last year, I was really disappointed and discourage how our government change their rules whenever they want to. They don't base your tax through your sales for the year, but on how much your sales were your first year of business. What if your sales is not the same this year? that's what I ask them, and of course they don't care, they base it on the first year sales of your business, and they expect it to keep growing. Well someone teach me a trick to lessen your taxes, but I'm not gonna post it on here; I don't want to cause trouble. But I'm sure that's what I'm gonna do next year. If they think they are wise, well I'm wiser lol.
