The Department of Finance is reportedly considering an increase on taxes on text messaging. We in TXTPower vehemently reject this proposal. Should this be implemented, Globe and Smart would definitely pass on the cost to us. As TXTPower spokesperson Tonyo Cruz said, this is ironic. Remember how the Generation Txt helped in ousting Erap Estrada that led to Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s assumption to power? Now, her government is thinking of betraying the Generation Txt by burdening us with more taxes even as we suffer from text cuts. No to text tax!
