BIR Capiz exceeds 2011 targetby Alex A. Lumaque
ROXAS CITY, Capiz, Jan. 6 (PIA) -- The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) Revenue District Office (RDO) No. 72 has collected about P591.6 million last year.
The figure is approximately P13.5 million higher than its P578.070 million goal for the year-long period.
Based on BIR Capiz report of collections, the agency has generated P54,190,756.55 tax for the month of December alone which is nearly 10 percent higher than its target.
The District’s massive tax campaigns like seminars and dialogues relative to tax collection have contributed to the accomplishment, said BIR – RDO No. 72 head Gil Tabanda.
Controllable taxes like withholdings on compensation, as well as at source and capital gain tax, among others, have significantly contributed to the collection.
The intensified crackdown on tax evaders through the implementation of Oplan Kandado, “BIR on Wheels,” and the P16 million payment of the Robinsons Land Corporation (RLC) last June have also helped in the increased collection.
BIR Capiz has closed two business firms in view of its “Oplan Kandado” campaign in the province in 2011. The closure orders came after the owners failed to comply with revenue laws.
The accomplishment was also attributed to the BIR’s much needed reforms instituted to improve its business processes and systems.
Due to its aggressive efforts in collecting taxes in the province, the District was given recognition as early as October during the gathering of BIR top officials in the region. (JCM/AAL/PIA 6 Capiz)
