Colorful terra-cotta sculpture of Filipino icons such as the

year (January to December) by virtue of marriage, death, or
birth of additional dependents should file with the Accounting
Office their revised BIR Form 2305 (Exemption Certificate)
on or before December 20. Under the BIR rule, the status of

his exemption for income tax purposes.
The Information Technology
