I've got some legal question, this might be just a semantic/language question. My colleagues and I have been arguing about this for some time now, because there's some level of ambiguity in the legal article below:
The company is a non-stock/non profit international organization, therefore there are globally and locally recruited staff.
Assuming that this is the only legal article encompassing taxation, and no other mentions can be found, particularly in no. 3, wherein it states there that Non-Filipino citizens are exempt from paying income taxes.
It explicitly states that non-Filipino - European, American etc. are exempt. But does this imply that Filipino citizens are required to pay income taxes? I mention required with the common understanding that all individuals receiving compensation/income by definition are "profiting" from the employment.
There are no mentions of Filipino being "required" or "exempted", thus the ambiguity on whether Filipino citizens should pay or not.
