Here’s the essential information you require to calculate your income tax! 📊💸

– How much is your SSS/Philhealth and PagIbig contributions

Overtime Pay: Php 5,000.00
Late deduction: Php 200.00
SSS Contribution: Php 1,350
Philhealth Contribution: Php 1,000

= 21,640 + 22,500
= 44,140 / 12 pay periods
= 3678.333333333333333 or 3678.33
