COMPUTATION OF VANISHING DEDUCTION APPLICABLE TO RESIDENT AND

NONRESIDENT CITIZEN DECEDENT

Vanishing deduction is one of the ordinary deductions allowed as a deduction in the
computation of net estate taxable of a resident and nonresident citizen decedent in the
Philippines.
Vanishing deduction is computed with the following format:
Value to take (the lower the amount of the fair market value of properties
xxxx
at the time of inheritance between at the time of death of the decedent)
Less: Mortgage paid assumed (1st deduction)
Initial Basis
Less: Proportionate deduction (2nd deduction)
Initial Basis
Gross Estate

(xxxx)
xxxx
(xxxx)

x ELITe + Transfer for Public Use = Proportionate deduction

Final Basis
Multiply by Vanishing deduction rate (%)

The vanishing deduction rates is based on the period from receipt to decedent's death as follows: (1)
within 1 year-100%; (2) beyond 1 year to 2 years-80%; (3) beyond 2 years to 3 years-60%; (4) beyond 3
years to 4 years-40%; and (5) beyond 4 years to 5 years-20%.

PROCEDURE IN
COMPUTING THE
VANISHING
DEDUCTION:
a) Determine the
initial value of the
property previously
taxed; Rule - Value of
"Property previously
Taxed" in computing
the estate tax or
donor's tax of the
prior transfer or that
of the present
decedent's estate,
whichever is lower.

b) Deduct any
mortgage or lien on
the "Property
Previously Taxed" paid
by the present
decedent prior to his
death, where such
mortgage or lien was
a deduction from the
gross estate of the
of the donor. This is
the "Initial Basis".

TOP c) The "Initial Basis" in Step (b) shall be further reduced by the
following ratio of the expenses, losses, indebtedness, taxes or
transfer for public purposes:
Initial Basis
------------- X
Gross estate

Expenses, losses, indebtedness

taxes, transfer for public use

d) Compute the final basis of PPT:

Initial Basis (Step (b) x x x
Less: Limitation (Step (c ) x x x
Final Basis (Amount subject to vanishing deduction) x x x
e) Determine the year interval between the date of death of the prior
and present decedent or date of gift and death of present decedent
to find the applicable percentage deduction:

- 1 year - 100%
- 2 " - 80%
- 3 " - 60%
- 4 " - 40%
- 5 " - 20%
over - 0%

The final basis (Step (d) multiplied by the percentage deduction

(Step (e) will be the vanishing deduction allowable.

15,000,000
Final basis [Step (d)] ------ P 2,600,000
