Henares to correct 106 yr of wrong practices in BIR

TACLOBAN CITY, Leyte, Jan 16 (PIA) –- Bureau of Internal Revenue Commissioner Kim S. Jacinto Henares is scheduled to visit Revenue Region 8 (Eastern Visayas) on January 18 where she will bare plans for the BIR including the 106 years of wrong practices of the office.

BIR regional director Diosdado Mendoza said that during her visit, Commissioner Henares will grace the blessing and inauguration of the newly-completed BIR records and Multi-Purpose Center Building.

The BIR Commissioner is expected to share her plans and strategies for the BIR for Tax Year 2012 and onwards, as she pursues the BIR’s noble mandate to raise government revenues for the country’s development.

Recognizing the proactive role of the media in disseminating information on BIR programs and initiatives, the Henares will also interact with the local media in a press conference.

The BIR Commissioner has a daunting task ahead of her - she wants to correct 106 years of wrong practices in the Bureau.

She knows what she speaks of having stayed in the revenue service from August 2003 to November 2005.

During such period, she held the position of Deputy Commissioner of the Special Concerns Group and office-in-charge of the Large Taxpayers Service.

She finished her Bachelor of Science in Commerce major in accounting degree at the De La Salle University and was admitted as a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) in 1981. She is also a lawyer, graduating Second Honor Medal from the Ateneo de Manila University.

Her education also includes a Master of Laws degree major in International and Comparative Law from Georgetown University in Washington DC.

Prior to the BIR, Henares worked as a tax lawyer at SGV & Co., was a partner at the Yap Jacinto Jacob Law Office, vice-president for corporate and legal affairs of ING Bank, governor of the Board of Investments and Senior Private Sector Development Specialist for the World Bank Group. (PIA 8)
