Professional Tax Receipt Part 2

>> Monday, September 17, 2012

Finally got my PTR at the San Juan City Hall. Took me less than 5 minutes!

I'm surprised to see that our government buildings are not what I thought they would be - dilapidated and stuffy.

It was actually pleasant and cool inside the buildings.

Makes for a good stop for tourists.


Professional Tax Reciept

>> Wednesday, September 12, 2012

Went to the Quezon City Hall to get my Professional Tax Reciept (PTR).
Upon entering the building, I asked the guard where I can get the PTR and he told me to go to the Miscellaneous office. The officer-in-charge at the PTR window was having lunch when I got there but she still entertained me.

Unfortunately, she said that the Quezon City Hall only issues PTRs for professions regulated by the PRC (Professional Regulatory Board).

So I have to go to other cities' city hall to get my PTR.

Anyone else encountered the same experience?

Which City Hall ba ang pinakamalapit sa Quezon City Hall?

 Went to San Juan City Hall instead and got my PTR for P300 in less than 5 minutes!


Myths in Personal Finance 1

>> Friday, September 07, 2012

Taken from "5 Myths in Personal Finance" by Efren Ll. Cruz, MoneySense Magazine

MYTH: To save, buy those items that come with free stuff 
If you could buy an item on a buy one take one promo, grab it; or should you? 
Only when you need to buy the item will these buy one, take one deals become a steal.    
As my wife and I were getting off an escalator in a mall, we nearly held up foot traffic when saw a foot stool that was being sold on a buy one, take one promo. But then we realized that we didn’t really have a use for even just one foot stool. 
In some situations, one piece of an alternative brand would still be cheaper even if you divided by two the price of the brand that is on a sale promotion.
Drop me a note if you would like to get more information on Financial Planning =)
