OTHER CONCERNS AND FEEDBACK:
The sad part of winning the Chevy Cruze is…paying the 30% withholding tax on the prize. That means, if the car is valued at P700,000, you’ll pay P210,000. Still a big sum.
Pass… God bless runners that will join this run. Pricey yet not sulit (personal grievance). But I believe this will be a very organize Run this year. Konting lang po kasi kayo. This will cater Class A , B and a little bit C class runners (in terms of financial status). See you guys at RU 3, Nov. 13, 2011.
“The car shall be released by the dealer only after presentation of the certificate issued by Chevrolet, as well as proof of payment of the 30% withholding tax on the prize”
