To most of us, we view taxation as burdersome and the process of it takes us to unfamiliar field and more often we want the easy way to solve it. Fret not because Asian Consulting Group launched a book “IWAS BUWIS-IT”: What To Do When Tax Attacks, it a tax guide made easy for all.
“The goal of the book is to help people understand taxes — not the technical knowledge, just the understanding of why we’re taxed, how are we taxed, and what kind of taxes we pay,” said ACG Founding Chairman Mon Abrea, “Iwas Buwis-it won’t be about how to file this return or pay that tax. The book is about life in general — your careers, your ideals, or even your business ideas.”
Like its previous publications, Iwas Buwis-it is part of ACG’s advocacy of helping taxpayers by educating them. If taxpayers know more about taxes, then they can avoid committing unnecessary violations. To further this advocacy, the Asian Consulting Group has also led seminars and consultations throughout the country.

The Philippine Tax Whiz Mon Abrea has also written other publications for the non-profit organization Center for Strategic Reforms of the Philippines, including the bestselling tax handbook, “Got A Question About Taxes? Ask The Tax Whiz!” as part of his advocacy.
“A lot of people are afraid of taxes, but whether we like it or not, we have to pay taxes,” said the ACG Founder. “If we make taxes more accessible and easier to understand, then maybe people won’t be afraid of it.”
