Good day! I would like to kindly request for the IRR of RA 10351 (Sin Tax Law of 2012). I have been looking for it in the internet to no avail. I will be using it to review the processes of disbursements from the different government Departments to implementing in different agencies such as DOH programs and PhilHealth.
