Tax Awareness Campaign
by Archie Alarcon
“Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also because of conscience. This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God's servants, who give their full time to governing. Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor. (Romans 13:5-7, NIV).
Therefore, we can conclude from this verse, if we don't pay taxes we are rebelling against the authorities established by God. The misuse of government spending and corruption in our tax system is widely happening. But that does not excuse us as Christians from submitting to the government as the Bible commands. As citizens, we canand shouldwork within the law to change the unbiblical elements of our current tax system. We can take advantage of every legal deduction and honest means to pay the minimum amount of taxes. But we cannot ignore God's Word, which clearly instructs us to be the subject to the governing authorities.
In line with this, with the initiative of Municipality of Orion and in cooperation with the Department of Education - Orion celebrated the Tax Awareness Campaign last February 07, with the theme “Buwis na Ibinabayad Ninyo, Pantawid sa Kinabukasan Ko”.The celebration had two parts, the first part was a parade which was simultaneously started at 7:00 o’clock in the morning in three different locations (schools) namely Sto. Domingo Elementary School, Pablo Roman Elementary School and Daan Pare Elementary School and ended up at plaza of Orion. With the support of the school heads of each school. Each participating schools together with their selected pupils and teachers displayed their posters about tax awareness and proper payment of taxes.
