Erin Tañada urges suspension of excise tax on fuel

Oct 26, 2018 @ 9:20

Former Quezon 4th District Representative Erin Tañada called for the immediate suspension of the excise tax on fuel before Christmas.

The Quezon politiko made the statement during the launch of the Opposition Coalition last October 24.

Tañada said the prices of goods are sure to increase during the holiday season.

“Sabi po ng Pangulo, hindi raw niya isususpinde ang Excise Tax sa produktong petrolyo. Pero may pampalubag-loob dahil sa susunod na taon daw ay hindi na ii-impose ang dalawang piso dagdag,” he said.

“Pero hindi po iyan ang solusyon dahil alam po natin na pagpasok ng Pasko, lalong tataas ang presyo ng mga bilihin. Lalong tataas po ang presyo ng gasolina. Kaya importante po na yung Excise Tax na ngayon ang dapat i-suspendi para matulungan po ang ating mga mamamayan,” Tañada added.
