BIR shuts down 4 stores in NegOr for tax violations

By: Rachelle M. Nessia

Dumaguete City, November – The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) here has closed down four business establishments in the province since January this year for failing to meet their tax responsibilities.

Local BIR Tax Services Section Chief Jose Senador in a symposium held at Negros Oriental State University (NORSU) Bais City campus disclosed that they have ordered the closure of said business establishments for tax violations ranging from failure to issue official receipts to non-payment of appropriate business taxes.

One of the closed business establishments was in Bais City.

Senador urged the public, particularly the students, to consistently demand official receipts every time they purchase goods or services.

“Make it a habit to ask for official receipts. This is one important thing that you can do for our government,” Senador told the NORSU Bais Campus students during the symposium conducted by the Philippine Information Agency (PIA)here.

BIR here has been closely monitoring business establishments around the province and responding to reports of tax violations from the public.

Since January to October this year, BIR here has collected more than P1 billion in taxes, averaging around P80 million per month.

BIR Revenue District Officer Crescencio Agad in the same forum disclosed that their office’s goal for this year is at P1,085,820 billion, their highest collection goal given to their office.

“As of yesterday, our collection has reached P1,053,501,230.19. We still need to collect more than P30 billion,” he said.

Agad is hopeful that BIR here will reach their tax collection goal at the end of this year. (PIA/rmn)
