How to get Professional Tax Receipt (PTR)?
Click the link below to know more about PTR:

Licensed Professionals practicing solely their profession are exempt from paying the mayor’s permit because they are exercising a profession rather than operating a business; however, they must pay an annual professional tax receipt to the municipalities in which they practice their profession.
Local municipalities, on the other hand, may levy and collect business taxes on professionals who own businesses other than their profession or practice their profession while owning other businesses other than their profession, because those other businesses are not covered by the professional tax receipt and are considered a business concern.

Registration with BIR is a way to legitimize your business and the proper way to conduct business.
