Abra Tobacco Industry

Abra Tobacco Industry

I hope this money goes back to the farmers who are breaking their backs everyday from their tabacco fields. Or is this just another war chest for incumbent politicians to be used in the up coming elections? – SysOp

THE Department of Budget has released the shares of Abra, Kalinga and Mt. Province in tobacco excise tax collection in 2012.

The Special Allotment Release Orders (SAROs) and the Notices of Cash Allocations (NCAs) were released by the DBM to local government units producing burley and native tobaccos and manufacturing Virginia-type cigarettes.

Initially, a portion of the total tobacco excise tax shares amounting to P3.45 billion was released by the DBM which is divided among tobacco producing and manufacturing LGUs.

Of the amount, Abra has a share of P432,631,219 from the 2012 excise tax of its 5,200,727.70 kilograms of locally-manufactured Virginia-type cigarettes.

The provincial government of Abra has a share of P185,413,380 and the rest of the amount is the share of the tobacco producing and Virginia-type cigarette manufacturing municipalities.

The LGU breakdown is as follows: P46,102,811 for the municipality of Pilar; P26,803,492 for Villaviciosa; P22,320,886 for San Isidro; P14,030,526 for Pidigan; P13,339,852 for Tayum; P12,840,740 for Luba; and P10,649,249 for Bangued.

A share of P4,888,632 is given to Bucay; P4,592,167 for Danglas; P5,678,953 for Dolores; P4,622,803 for Manabo; P7,150,347 for Penarubbia; P4,675,852 for Sal-lapadan; P6,791,384 for San Juan; P6,752,013 for San Quintin; P4,578,109 for Tineg; and P5,618,943 for Tubo.

The municipalities of Boliney, Bucloc, Daguioman, La Paz, Lacub, Lagangilag, Langiden, Langayan, Licuan-Baay, and Malibcong also gets a share of P4,578,108 each.

From the 2012 collection of burley and native tobacco excise tax, Abra has a share of P359,918 for its; Kalinga has P26,665 and Mt. Province has P18,054.

These provinces has a volume production of 105,038 kilograms; 7,782 kilograms; and 4,269 kilograms of burley and native tobacco respectively.

LGUs can download the funds only after documentary requirements pursuant to Local Budget Memorandum no. 69 has been submitted to the DBM-CAR.

These documents include a list of projects and programs relative to tobacco farming, livelihood, capacity-building, infrastructure and agro-industrial projects to be implemented using the fund with supporting documents such as the approved City Council ordinance or resolution for the projects/programs, the mechanism and period of implementation, and the projected and estimated number of beneficiaries.

The projects and/or programs should be included in the Annual Investment Program and they should have a Copy of Certificate of Registration from the Securities and Exchange Commission as well as a Copy of Certificate of Accreditation from the Cooperative Development Authority.

The 15 percent share of the LGUs from the incremental revenue from the excise tax on tobacco products and locally manufactured Virginia-type cigarettes is in accordance with the Republic Act 8240 and RA 7171.

In a statement, DBM secretary Florencio Abad said the allotment of shares is for tobacco farmers and cigarette manufacturers to sustain the industry.

“Tobacco farmers will now have the budgetary support to develop their self-reliance through livelihood and cooperative projects that can help increase their productivity or enhance their income,” he said.

“More than just strengthening the LGUs the benefit from the releases, the proceed from the taxes give these LGUs more economic opportunities. In the end, the progress of the tobacco industry also sustains the country’s overall economic expansion and exclusive development,” he added.

  2. Hahahahahahahahahhahaha…in your dreams…..the COA and other collaborators? hahahahahahaaa…..Wait for Duterte to become our President! Our province is doomed and we need someone like Moses and King David in the Bible. The King sacrificed more than his life and honor just to free his country from the bondage of poverty and injustices brought-forth by King Saul for how many decades. And Moses did the unthinkable by crossing the Red Sea and stayed patiently in the wilderness for 40 years just to save his or God’s people from the bondage of slavery. Now, who is the most qualified to duplicate the courage and loving-kindness of these ancient heroes among the alleged presidential candidates that this excise tax share and other benefits will be delivered to the poor majority?

  4. Agyamanak unay ta naipablaak met laengen daytoy tobacco excise tax RA 7171. Ngem nasakit unay ti reknak nga makaamo ti kadakkel ti buis ni pobre nga mannalon! Ti 432 m pesos nga buis ti 5 million kg ti virginia tobacco nga producto ti Abra equals 86 pesos tax per kilo. Dios ko! Ti average nga presio ti tabaco ket dipay umabot ti P 60! Per kilo! Anian nga pannakaidadanes ni pobre nga mannalon nga manggamullo ti panagmula manipud Sept. ingganat Abril. Kalpasanna, ad-adunto pay lang ti ibulsa ni mayor ngem ti agsubli ken mannalon nga mangpadur-as koma ti biagna.

    Pilar, where I worked for more than a decade still has dirt roads when I visited my friends around recently. But happy to note and to learn that the provincial road from poblacion Pilar to Dalit, with around 20 km which used to have only sporadic cemented parts is now completely cemented. This was completed by the support of gov Takit according to reliable informations I gathered from barangay captains n SBs . No awan ni gov. Ken ti KALAHI PROGRAM nga nangsemento ti Patad n Nagcanasan road, adu nga kalsada pay laeng ti saan nga nasemento sa diay ti laksid ti kadakkel ti share ti Pilar. Napanan ti kuarta? Naibagayon tadi,casino, mansions, luxury cars,investments here n abroad.

    Take note: RA7171 became a law in 1990 during the term of pres. Aquino. The share of provincial government this year is more than 185 m from the 432 m for the entire province. As I mentioned before, RA 7171 is giving our congressman n governor bigger amount than 70 m from PDAF. So you could imagine how much was received by the province before Takit’s . There are accuses against gov Takit which may be partly true, but what he has done good for our province is greater than what previous governors had done put together.

  7. Pudno unay nga nag sakit ti rikna ti sagsagabaen ni mannalon! Where in the world could you find tax payer shouldering some 130 percent tax from his meager income? 60 pesos laeng ti bayad ti per kg., agbuis da ti nasurok nga 80 pesos per kg? Kalpasanna ad-adunto pay la ti I bulsa ni awan konsensyana nga agturay. Daytoy koma nga pannakairurumen dagiti appo nga mannalon ti kitaen dagiti lawmakers ken pres Pinoy ket mabaliwan daytoy tobacco excise tax RA 7171. It is a blatant insult added to injury for our poor tobacco farmers

  10. I agree with you DAMASO, either Duterte or Lacson is our biggest hope that our gains under Pinoy will be continued. Let us also campaign hard against political dynasties n d evil of vote buying.

    Brother MOKONG, the kind of revolution that I have in mind is for the farmers to stop planting tobacco because they are just like slaves of our heartless politicians. They instead plant other high valued crops such as corn, garlic, union etc. which are free of excise tax .

        • Laws could be amended; even our constitution the highest law of the land. It’s unfortunate that somebody aspiring to be a lawmaker does not know about amendments, and the influence of a president to a possible amendments of the provisions of a law like this corrupt infected law RA 7171. I believe the president who usually controls both congress and senate could suggest corrections of this RA to benefit the poor farmers instead of being used as milking cow of heartless politicians. I’m now convinced that such possible new hope for change does not deserve votes of Abrenians and my vote dreaming for change. The failure to hear the Huge Anouncement for the candidacy didn’t happen during the province festival only justify that everything is nothing but plain farce.

    • I agree with you tagamasid but may i ask koliglig if he has a program for alernative livelihood of our farmers. it is not easy to start planting new variety of plants if there are no assistance n support frm the local government tagamasid. their capital n resources are borrowed frm the shark loan wherein the profits are enough only to pay the interest of yheir loan.

  11. Our Lord Jesus Christ came, lived with us, crucified, and raised. But who or what really caused His death? Was it Judas the traitor-LOVER OF MONEY? The equally proud Herod or Palete? The envious priests on issue of blasphemy because Jesus claimed to be the Son of God or treason on tax against Cesaer? Or was it Love of God for us who are all sinners ( John 3:16), ‘ and the wages of sin is death…..? ( Romans 6:23)
    Our hope for salvation: confession of our sins, repentance, and belief on Him. (1 John1:9, Rm 10:9, Exekiel 18:30-32)

  12. Corruption are substantial threats to good governance, sustainable development, the democratic process and fair business practices. Bribery and corruption undermine attempts to achieve higher levels of economic and social welfare and impede efforts to reduce poverty. Corrupt actions also lead to loss of confidence in the public and private sector.
    Fellow abrenians, wake up remember the good will always prevail over bad deeds. Do not sell your VOTES come 2016 elections. Because the end results will be as bad as what you are thinking.

  14. Fellow abrenians who have sold their votes on the past elections, remember you have survived on the past 3 years without this small amount of money paid by this corrupt politicians who are now reaping every single cents they spend in paying you. I know from the very start that when you receive the money, you are duty bound to vote those who have paid you, unless otherwise you do not have concern on your life and physical being to vote a different candidate from the politicians who had paid you. Nowadays, I believed illiteracy does not exist in Abra or if there is any it is by statistics more or less 2 percent. So there is no reason why we can not discern which is which in choosing our candidates. And to those abrenians who have concern on our province and with unblemished reputation, come forward and challenge our present corrupt politicians. Rest assure that we will help you to get your needed vote to win against those bottomless money purse of this corrupt politicians. We have enough with the family of Dominic Valera which is more talk & slogans less work and good for making money in the guise of registrations and tax which not directed by the law, also to our present Governor who is expected to alleviate our present situation, especially political killings, has done nothing but hide under the SAYA of Ruby.
    We know very well that this two political kingpin in our province have their own goons to wade out those who criticized and opposed their self serving agenda.
    So THINK and DISCERN well before accepting those PPV (pay per vote) money.

    • Loud & Clear…Political Dynasties just have to be prohibited as constitutionally mandated to insure commitment to democratize election. Graft & Corruption is a shared responsibility. Its solutions depends not only on the quality of our leaders & public servants but more importantly on the civic spiritedness of every Filipino. It is a critical necessity to have active partners from vigilant citizens & organizations in the private sector in waging an effective war against corruption.

      In 2009 survey perceived the Philippines as the fourth most corrupt country in Asia.

      May each year is declared Anti-Graft and Corrupt Awareness month in line with the constitutional mandate in Section 28…Proclamation No. 591 (2004).

    • Selling votes is not the sole cause of corrupt n inept leaders we have loud n clear i would say the information gap that most of the abrenian are experiencing. In a place where media n NGOs are actively doing their mandated task corruption is minimized in abra i cnt not even hear frm the radio condemning what is happening now even the ccag i cnt remember if they had initisted cases of corruption against our leaders thats why i salute jendrix despite that he is corrupt also he filed graft against takit who knows it will orosper then it will be an eye opener of our politicians.

    • Madam Comli, indeed we have the private organization which is during their first to 2nd year are very very active and do not care if their life is in danger, this is the CCAGG at the helm is Ms. Bersolona and Ms. Pura.They are fearless and outspoken, but after a decade it wane out and so far accomplished less.
      We are hoping that you have file your candidacy and hoping that you could make a big difference from the present situation in Abra. As saying goes; it there is a will then there is a way. Because, at present there is no candidate to go against this greedy politician, who does not offer window of opportunities for the underprivileged. Who every project they make you can find their big tarpaulin that this is their project, where in fact it came from
      the peoples tax thus making their constituent a stupid person. They give less and expect an ROI to that big. Soo big that they cannot even carry them. So if we vote again this politicians less assure there is no much time to
      reform our beloved Abra.

  17. My NGO , Save Lives & Save Dignity made the 2-year requirement by Ombudsman Office to be involved in their Graft & Corruption Program. There will be training & I probably will need people like you in the group. I will get more information by the end of this month. Anyone interested, they also have a shortage of investigators in the Luzon area which is the reason of delayed dispositions of all filed graft & corruption cases although there ia already an assigned case number. They only have 7-investigators throughout Luzon.

    As a commemoration of the Graft & Corruption awareness next month, I plan to sponsor a Citizen Action Group with the IWPR- institute for War & Peace Reporting, CCJD- Center for Community Journalism & Development, Minda News, and the NUJP- Nat’l Union of Journalists of the Phil. They are all in partnership responsible for the Phil. Public Transparency Reporting Project as well as the Phil. Human Rights Reporting Project.

    The CANA, citizen action network for accountability aims to build citizen & local community action around LGU’s throughoutthe country to improve transparency & accountability, cut down on wastage & corruption & to help make sure LGU’s are always working for the best interexxxt of all – and for the poorest & most marginalized in particular.

      • Ms. Hennessey & myself knows about all these. In fact we posted on facebook sometime the other year almost all the info so the abrenians will know. COA audits were also posted. I have the hard copies.

        If only we have the manpower who would work together, we could accomplish more to see a result. Ms. Hennessey is in Australia & I am here, in the US. It’s so difficult following up via emails or phone calls. I feel a follow-up in person is more effective. Getting results take more time because if this.

        @Tagamasid, your post of April 9th, are you referring to me? If you read my comments in that thread, someone else, NOT me was saying I was going to make an announcement for my candidacy. Until I have in my hands all the requirements to file my candidacy, I am not making such an announcement. However, I will continue interacting with everyone here regarding solutions for a better Abra.

    If you push through with your desire to make difference of our province, you can have my modest support, as long as you don’t go head on with Takit (As I mentioned before). I also support anti-dynasties campaign, and vote only gov Takit if other Bersamins will participate.

I sensed the humility from some of you and that’s good enough for me. I am still hopeful, you’ll get to know me more soon and hopeful too that you will join-hands with

    Posted by comli2013 | April 12, 2015, 1:20 pm
  24. madam comli2013, Article IX, section 2, item #4 of the 1987 constitution states that no officer in the civil service shall engage directly or indirectly in any electioneering or partisan political campaign.
    Though this was clearly stated in the Philippine constitution, it is well known that civil servants are dragged into the political fray because they have no choice but to follow their bosses, who most of the time are politicians.

      • With all due respect Madam Comli, Mario Bang was right, the Philippine Constitution was convened during the term of Prez. Cory Aquino that was 1986 the Chairwoman was Cecilia Munoz Palma, and was drafted in 1987. Thereafter nothing follows.

        • This is the title of the book that was sent to me:

          Textbook on the Phil. CONSTITUTION -2011
          I was assuming this is the book. HOWEVER; I was looking at the Title IX Sec 2 & it’s saying something else. Anyway, i’ll read agsin. Thanks gentlemen for your help.

        • Loud n clear the phil constitution is a fundamental guide of our lawmakers to enact laws. There are laws relative to the civil servants on theur accountability to the people they are serving for like the RA 4316 or known as the code if ethical doctrine of public officials n employeees. Some of our lGU employees dont know this doctrine eventhough they are filing SALN. They should ask Mr pex Acosta to lecture them with this act.

  26. I think I just want to understand why gov’t employees cannot get involve in a political campaign. We don’t have this kind of restriction here in the US.

    This is one good example for a reason to introduce a new HB .

  27. Madam COMLI, have you ever made a survey in Abra, What is the percentage that the Philippines Laws has been followed or implemented? Because, as far as the civil society is concern, justice is only for the rich and privilege person in Abra. Then when you transact with the local LGU, you need a lot of grease money to ease up the burden of waiting, this employee are not meant to serve the people of Abra, they wont open their files if you do not give the so called LAGAY. We have a lots of Laws that is not being implemented in Abra.

    • All will change eventually in a short time…God willing!
      Change gotta start from our Justice System down to our local gov’ts. This is where we really need a caring & honest President to impose tough consequences for the lawbreakers whom the people had entrusted to deliver good service.

      In America, you break the law, you pay for it. It does’nt matter if you’re the wealthiest or not. We can make our country as one, if we elect a good President.

      I received a text yesterday. My nephew’s case was re-scheduled because there was no Judge to hear cases scheduled for that day? How is this possible? All these must be changed. We can do it! I sense a lot of intelligent Abrenians who can effectively work together to help reform what is not working for the good of our province. Enough is enough…The time has come….

    • I beg to disagree with you loud n clear. First have you experienced firsthand victim of “injustices” meaning have u been charged in the court or in any quasi judicial body for u to know that justice is for the rich only. U are one of those promoting info gap to abrenians with intent to destroy the trust of the masses towards the current sytem of democracy. Im telling this becaus i was charnged indiscriminately in the dufferent forum( court quasi body) n my complainants are rich n influential people of abra like koliglig n his allies n his foes because they cant turn my head to be blinfolded in yheir corrupt practices n illegal activities . as long u are in the side of truth yuo will be vindicated thats why i beginning to trust the justice sytem.

  29. The evolution of social media into a robust mechanism for social transformation is already visible. Despite many adamant critics who insist that tools like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are little more than faddish distractions useful only to exchange trivial information, these critics are being proven wrong time and again.

  31. malayo pa election if they won congrats! if they lose, much better, ako wala ako bet kundi si chari B and LIAN B. the two have common they are B. joke lng kahit sino manalo bsta pg sila nakaupo they should serve their constituents with utmost intergity as embodied in the code of ethics of public officials. yan lng aking request to the aspiring public servants mapa elect man o appointed.

  32. oke oke there is ongoing oral argument at the SC where the chief justice sereno and asociate justice leonen want that the condonation doctrine will scrap out for good so that pbulic officials will serve with utmost integrity their constituents. in abra, the admin case of crisologo at the SP was exonerated because of this doctrine now i pray eventhough the case against takit and koliglig were filed before they were elected as governor n mayor respectivley. they will be the first elected officials to be indicted because the SC will not apply their own jurisprudence . ang saya saya>
