There are only 1 or 2 questions in the Bar about Basic Principles ! What are the favorite topics in the Bar? ! 12 questions on Income Tax ! 8-10 questions on remedies ! 8-10 questions allocated to the 7 topics ! BASIC PRINCIPLES: " Taxation is an inherent power of the State. Q: What do you mean by INHERENT? A: The power to tax is not provided for in the law, statute or constitution; it depends on the existence of the state. No law or legislation for the exercise of the power to tax by the national government. Q: Do local governments exercise this inherent power? A: No. Only the National Government exercises the inherent power to impose taxes. Q: The taxing power of local governments is a DELAGATED power. Delegated by whom? A: Delegated by Congress through law in case of autonomous regions, and delegated by the constitution in case of LGUs not considered an autonomous region. " Cities, provinces and municipalities ! power granted under Art. X Sec. 5&6 of the Constitution ! Autonomous Regions ! power conferred by Congress through law. Art. X Sec. 20 #2 of the Constitution is a non-self-executing provision. Thus the power is granted by Congress because said provision requires an enabling law. " Article X, Section 5 is self-executing thus the power is granted by the constitution. CONSTITUTIONAL LIMITATIONS Due Process Clause Q: why is it a limitation to the power to tax? A: The due process clause as a limitation to the power to tax refers both to substantive and procedural due process. Substantive due process requires that a tax statute must be within the constitutional authority of Congress to pass and that it be reasonable, fair and just. Procedural due process, on the other hand, requires notice and hearing or at least the opportunity to be heard. Ex: On Substantive Due Process- when the Congress passes a law exempting the 13th month pay from tax but with the concurrence only of the majority of the quorum – law would be invalid because the Constitution provides that any grant of tax exemption shall be passed with the concurrence of the majority of all the members of the Congress. Q: Does it follow that the adverse party must always be notified?

As a rule. After the amendment. Ex: In one case. The SC said that the ordinance was invalid because of the failure to state the said classification. you can secure a TRO without notifying the adverse party. Q: Who are the petitioners and what was their contention? A: The petitioners are Filipino businessmen who are operating their business outside the secured area. passed RA 7227. notice and hearing or the opportunity to be heard is necessary only when expressly required by law. 1998.
