Here’s your new Take-Home Pay under TRAIN Tax Reform

Do you want to know how much your new take-home pay is under the approved TRAIN tax reform law of the Philippines?

We provide below an income tax table which shows:

  • (1) how much tax is currently being deducted from your salary per month; and
  • (2) how much the new tax will be beginning January 2018 under the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) program approved into law by Pres. Rodrigo Duterte

You’ll then get to see how much your salary will increase by the additional take-home pay to be given to you because of the reduced income tax rates under the approved tax reform.

(UPDATE): We compiled all articles related to the TRAIN law on this page: TRAIN Law and BIR Tax Implementing Guidelines. Click the link to access BIR’s implementing rules and regulations and examples of how to compute applicable taxes.

Additional Take-Home Pay under TRAIN Tax Reform

* * * UPDATED resources on the approved TRAIN Tax Reform below:

We provide below a more comprehensive tax table showing the additional take-home pay for monthly salaries up to P250,000. Here’s how to read the tax table:

  1. Look for the row closest to the amount of gross salary you’re receiving per month.
  2. Check the corresponding next column which shows how much withholding tax is currently being deducted from your salary.
  3. The next column “Monthly Tax in 2018 (under Tax Reform)” shows the expected amount of income tax that will be deducted from your salary beginning January 2018.
  4. Finally, the column “Additional Take-Home Pay per Month” shows your tax savings, that is, how much incremental salary you will receive as additional take-home pay due to the implementation of the reduced personal income tax rates.

    When will I get the tax refund?

    1. ranz says:

      Why would you get a refund?

    2. Bill M. says:

      Huh? What are you talking about? As of Dec. 31, 2017, we have not started earning and paying income tax for 2018 so why should you already get a refund? For your information, the new tax law or otherwise know as the TRAIN is not retroactive. It will take effect on January 1, 2018.

    3. dolly says:

      She’s referring to the tax in 2017, that supposedly will be refunded this January 15, 2018.

  5. Kath says:

  6. Ishie says:

    Previously your exemption is 50k + 25*3 = 125k lang, while now fixed exemption is increased to 250k irregardless if single or with dependents.

    ang ganda lang tignan kasi wla pang effectong nakikita pero lahat sobrang tataas pagkain, pamasahe lahat…. bka lahat mag sisisi

  12. Melanie says:

    Please help clarify the 2018 tax computation per your table. For example, for monthly base salary of P25,000, tax withholding under TRAIN should be P25,000 – P20,833 = P4,167 x 20% = P833.40 vs. P634.57 in your table above. The computation I’m following is based on BIR published revised withholding tax table Annex A.

    1. hi says:

      the table that they are using is a automatic table on how to compute tax under train wherein they input a deduction of 50,000.00 regardless of amount. so there is the difference between 833.40 and 634.57.
      under the annex A table the tax of 250 is 634.57. so they deducted a personal exemptiin of 50,000.00

  13. Rofel says:

    Hi sir,

    Is there changes in the monthly tax table matrix for computing tax monthly?
    Is the bir published or give a copy in the branch or rdo?

    Thank you so much.

  14. sheila velez says:

    How come not all companies are affected with this TAX Reform issue. Is it true that it is only applied to Provincial companies only?

  15. John Carl Gargallano says:

    hi sir, pano po yung mga sumasahod ng 10,000 below?? Sa tingin ko po medyo magmamahal ang mga bilihin dahil sa dagdag na excise tax.. ibigsabihin lang po nun talo po yung sumasahod ng mababa lalo na ang sumasahod ng below 10,000 dahil hindi madadagdagan yung sahod tapos nagmahalan pa ang presyo ng mga bilihin..

  22. Jeng Cruz says:

    Thank you for having a more comprehensive table for the tax reform. You really made it clearer. But may I ask what’s the changes for freelancers and work from home employees like me? I do my work online and don’t have a consistent amount of earnings every month.

  23. Ian Dela Cruz says:

    Good day,
    I would like to ask if a daily employee will be taxable if she earns Basic – 572.00 plus ECOLA – 10.00. According to minimum wage table of NCR she is above minimum but with the reference of TRAIN LAW if an employee is earning below 25K she will be zero tax. Let us say:
    Basic 572.00 X 26 days = 14,872.00 monthly
    She did not reach the 25K ceiling.

    How can you help me regarding on this. Thank you and God bless.
