    Just another way the NTC and the government are TAKING ADVANTAGE OF OFWs. After all who else is using satellite receivers but OFW? We are the only ones that have the means to buy these.
    Did you Kababayans know that they are now imposing taxes on TVs which have screen sizes 34 inches and above? Who do you think bring in these tvs?
    The NTC might as well require a license to go into the internet. I won't be surprised if they do!

    not even 34 inches. 25inches TV and above gets taxes already. but if you want to avoid taxes, you send it via cargo and then PERSONALLY claim the baggage in Pinas, you get the exemption. ask your freight forwarders for how to do the trick. they should know all the palusot in the customs. if you want, just ask Col Billy Bibit in Cebu (ehem ehem....)

    Good "workaround" but then I will have to come home everytime I send a big screen tv or schedule my vacation with any tv purchase.
