CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga-Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) reminds doctors and dentists in Central Luzon that they are barred from collecting separate fees from patients who are admitted in hospitals.
“Under Revenue Regulation No.14-2013, the professional fee should be included in the hospital bill. The withholding tax due from his/her fee should be deducted and remitted to us,” BIR Region No.4 Assistant Director Conrado Lee said.
“The hospital must withhold 15% of the professional fee if the annual income is P720,000 or more and 10% if less,” Lee added.
Revenue rules require hospitals to annually submit the list of its doctors and their addresses while doctors are obliged to post their fees in their offices.
BIR Region No.4, which covers six out of the seven provinces of Central Luzon, targets P18 billion in revenue collection this 2013.
The goal is spread out in its 10 district offices in Tarlac City; Paniqui town, Tarlac; Olongapo City; Subic Bay Freeport; Bataan; North Pampanga; South Pampanga; Aurora; North Nueva Ecija; and South Nueva Ecija which has a total of 1,463,688 taxpayers as of December 2012. (Rebecca Grace S. David)
