How to Get Community Tax Certificate or Cedula?

One part of adulting life is dealing with taxes. When I woke up this morning, my father told me that he will get his cedula in the town hall today. The statement is like a warm, black coffee that waken up my senses. I prepared myself even I struggle to take a bath in this cold weather. I really need to get one as it is needed in my job.

What is community tax certificate (CTC)? 

CTC locally known as cedula is a legal form issued to individuals aged 18 years old and above working for at least 30 consecutive days or who has a business or who has a real property/properties. The town or city government units and barangay have the power to issue this paper beginning January 2 every year. 

Why one should have it?

The said certificate is needed when you file an income tax return or applying for government- issued identification cards such as Postal ID. 

I need to get my cedula because I need to use the number for my Statement of Assets, Liabilities, and Net Worth (SALN).
