THE laborers of the New Iloilo International Airport in Sta. Barbara-Cabatuan wanted their tax pays refunded from the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR).

Seventy-nine laborers of the airport, which is currently being constructed, complained very recently of the tax charged against their salaries.

The workers, which were hired under the Taisei Construction, the contractor of the airport, reportedly complained that out of their P2,994 weekly pay, P441 was being deducted-told to be the laborer's withholding taxes.

Allegedly, the money goes to each person who recommended them.

Cabatuan Mayor Ramon Yee, in a broadcast of Aksyon Radyo said the said money was remitted to the BIR, thus, the workers should file for a refund of the same withheld taxes before the BIR.
