Doctors No Longer Ask For Apology from BIR Chief

I am sharing this post for my doctor friends from CGHMC and from other hospitals as well, I hope that this will enlighten everyone with regards to the BIR advertisement  that came out a week ago.

Here is an update sourced from ABS-CBN News

The Philippine Medical Association (PMA) will no longer ask for a public apology from Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) Commissioner Kim Henares over an advertisement that depicts doctors as tax evaders.
According to PMA vice president Dr. Irineo Bernardo, after a meeting over the weekend, the Board of Governors has decided that they would rather move forward with the BIR and ask for assistance in paying the right taxes.
Doctors earlier expressed dismay over the advertisement, which they called a "shame campaign" of the BIR against professionals.
The controversial ad shows a doctor perched on the shoulders of a grade school teacher, with a caption saying: "When you don't pay your taxes, you're a burden to those who do. Do your share.
The BIR, for its part, had said the advertisement does not single out doctors and is aimed at anyone who is not paying the correct taxes.
If you have anything to share. Please feel free to speak your mind.
