MANILA, Philippines — Public school teachers will be among those who would benefit from the government’s tax reform program, according to the Department of Education (DepEd).

With the implementation of the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) and the third tranche of the salary standardization law, DepEd said teachers could receive a salary increase of at least P2,700 per month.

It noted that entry-level public school teachers with Salary Grade 11 used to take home P17,220.86 per month, including their personnel economic relief allowance (PERA).

With the new adjustments, the same teachers would receive a net take home pay of P20,012.89 (including PERA) starting this month.

“This amounts to a total net increase of 16.21 percent or P2,792.03 per month,” said DepEd.

The agency also noted the increase in the annual chalk allowance received by teachers, from P2,500 to P3,500. This is allotted for the purchase of chalk, erasers and other classroom supplies and materials.

The clothing allowance of teachers also increased from P5,000 to P6,000, according to DepEd.
