Broadcast journalist Ted Failon examines the Bureau of Internal Revenue’s (BIR) implementation of its shame campaign that publishes names of delinquent taxpayers this Saturday (Mar 22) in “Failon Ngayon.”

According to BIR, tax evaders put an additional burden on responsible taxpayers, and the campaign only seeks to pressure evaders into paying the correct tax.

Has BIR’s shame campaign helped the government reach its target collection goal?

Meanwhile, Ted also looks into why young people get hooked on online games that lead scuffles and crimes. The episode also evaluates Filipinos’ habit of borrowing money, as well as the rights of lenders and borrowers.
