Capiz BIR exec urges tax drive support

Roxas City – The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) has urged the support of public information officers in Capiz to support the government’s taxation campaign.

Revenue District Officer Gil Tabanda of BIR Capiz expressed appreciation to the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) for facilitating a lecture for members of the Capiz Association of Government Public Information Officers (CAGPIO).

“This is a rare opportunity for us to ask for your support in our tax effort, especially that your association is composed of information officers from the different local government units as well as national government agencies and government owned and controlled corporations,” he said.

Tabanda also stressed that information officers play a very important role in the government’s tax campaign program, particularly in explaining to the people their responsibility as tax payers.

In particular, he called on the support of the LGU information officers to help them in accessing the information on taxpayers, business registration, gross receipts, retired businesses and other information for tax collection purposes.

Among the tax drive that were given emphasis by Tabanda include the Instant Premyo sa Resibo program, Run After Tax Evaders (RATE) and Oplan Kandado.

He explained that the Instant Premyo sa Resibo project is an incentives and rewards program that encourages consumers to request for receipts of all purchases of goods and/or services.

“With the issuance of official receipts, we would ensure that the taxes paid will be remitted to the government coffers,” Tabanda said.

For the RATE program, he pointed out that it initiated by the BIR and the Department of Finance (DOF) to investigate and prosecute individuals and or entities engaged in tax evasion and other criminal violations of the National Internal Revenue Code of 1997.

On the other hand, Tabanda explained that the Oplan Kandado is an initiative involving the strengthening of the BIR’s imposition of the prescribed administrative sanction with such essential requirements as issuance of receipts, filing of returns, declaration of taxable transactions, taxpayer registration and payment of correct taxes.
