Nosebleed sa taxation? Gideon Peña gives Bar takers advice
Atty. Gideon Peña tackles a law subject very close to his heart. The abogado shares that during his time as a bar candidate, he also “lost the battle” of Taxation.
When I took the bar, I was so disheartened after taxation especially after I heard fellow examinees say how easy it was. A random stranger, who I later learned to be an Atenean lawyer, told me not let one battle define my war.
I lost my battle in tax; but I won the war.

Peña said that he also felt disheartened after that Bar Exam as he heard batch mates discussing the questions and how easy it was. The abogado said that despite failing the Taxation part of the exam, he faired so well in the other subjects that he passed the Bar.
The abogado added that he only felt better when an Atenean lawyer told him to not let one battle defeat him or make him lose the war. In the abogado’s words, “I lost my battle in tax; but I won the war.”
Yang tax pahirap sa Bar at sa buhay, in general! Win the war, brodie!
