The social media influencers being referred to are producers of digital content on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. The 2021 collection is about 332% higher than the previous year as more and more social media influencers has started declaring their income and paying taxes.

In August 2021, the BIR sent out a memo reminding bloggers and social media influencers to pay their taxes. There was even a reward of Php1 million for anyone who reports a tax-evading social media influencer.
