Na-check mo na ba ang Tax Reform Act 8424 re: sa question mo? I quote from this Act that may help you.
Excerpt from Tax Reform Act RA-8424
"SEC. 35. Allowance of Personal Exemption for Individual Taxpayer. –
(A) In General. - For purposes of determining the tax provided in Section 24 (A) of this Title, there shall be allowed a basic personal exemption as follows:
For single individual or married individual judicially decreed as legally
separated with no qualified dependents P20,000
For Head of Family P25,000
For each married individual P32,000
In the case of married individuals where only one of the spouses is deriving gross income, only such spouse shall be allowed the personal exemption.
For purposes of this paragraph, the term 'head of family' means an unmarried or legally separated man or woman with one or both parents, or with one or more brothers or sisters, or with one or more legitimate, recognized natural or legally adopted children living with and dependent upon him for their chief support, where such brothers or sisters or children are not more than twenty-one (21) years of age, unmarried and not gainfully employed or where such children, brothers or sisters, regardless of age are incapable of self-support because of mental or physical defect.
(B) Additional Exemption for Dependents. - There shall be allowed an additional exemption of Eight thousand pesos (P8,000) for each dependent not exceeding four (4).
The additional exemption for dependent shall be claimed by only one of the spouses in the case of married individuals.
In the case of legally separated spouses, additional exemptions may be claimed only by the spouse who has custody of the child or children: Provided, That the total amount of additional exemptions that may be claimed by both shall not exceed the maximum additional exemptions herein allowed.
For purposes of this Subsection, a 'dependent' means a legitimate, illegitimate or legally adopted child chiefly dependent upon and living with the taxpayer if such dependent is not more than twenty-one (21) years of age unmarried and not gainfully employed or if such dependent, regardless of age, is incapable of self-support because of mental or physical defect.

Gud luck...

you are a head of the family with two dependents. as per the revised version of what Ladie posted, you are entitled to 50 thousand personal exemption plus 25 thousand each for your children provided you can show that they are considered living with you and dependent on you for support. kahit di mismong kasama sa bahay, pwedeng iconsidera na living with you depende sa circumstances. secure ka ng form 2305 sa BIR tapos pwede ka na ring magpa-advice dun.

Hi Sirs,

I was wondering if you can help me with my situation, we're separated pero I provide financial support to my kid, along with paying for 100% of tuition fees, school bus, and other miscellaneous expenses. Pero the child lives with her mother. Can I apply for the personal exemption and the exemption for the dependent?

6 Single Parent Tax Exemption on Sun Jun 15, 2014 9:40 pm

Hi there.
Don't know if I can still post on this thread but I just want to make sure I understand Tax Reform Act 8424 correctly.
I am a single mom. Unmaried with 2 kids now 18 and 16. The father had abandoned the kids years ago.
Does this act means that aside from the P50K tax exemptions I get for the 2 kids I also should have a P50K  personal exemption? I am aware of the exemption for the kids but not quite sure if I am getting the personal excemption as well. Is that standard procedure? I don't remember being asked to fill up a 2305 BIR form by our HR. And is the exemption for the dependents till 18 only or 21? My son just turned 18 and works part time in a fast food store but he still lives with me and I still provide for almost all of his needs including his college tuition. Is he still considered my dependent and therefore qualified for the exemption?
Hope you can give me some more info on this. Appreciate the time. Thanks
