Apparently, the Book Blockade isn’t completely over. Books are still being taxed to individuals. They say you can apply for exemption by appearing personally at the DOF. What the fuck is that? Why do you have to file for exemption at all? Tax free is fucking tax free. What is it about “TAX FREE” do these people NOT understand?
Thankfully, I don’t have to freak out more than that as there is a legal alternative. From Chingbee Cruz:
I need your receipts ASAP.
I am collecting receipts issued by the post office for taxes charged upon claiming shipments of books.
These receipts will be turned over to UP Law Dean Marvic Leonen by Friday next week, August 28.
Please email me your scanned receipts at chingbee(dot)firstname.lastname@example.org. Please hold on to the original receipt. Or, if you are in the area where I work, you can hand me the original receipt at Room 2065, Faculty Center, UP Diliman.
