BIR steps up tax collection campaign

By Pilar S. Mabaquiao

SAN JOSE, Antique Jan 25 (PIA) -- The Bureau of Internal Revenue is stepping up its campaign on revenue and tax collection.

Revenue District Officer Ursula Equiña of Revenue District Office 73 in Antique in an interview said the intensified tax collection target for 2012 is P382.644 million.

Thus, she urged consumers to demand an official receipt every time they buy goods or pay for services. This can help government’s revenue collection efforts..

She also bared the BIR’s regular monthly tax mapping and surveillance operations in different towns to look into the compliance of business establishments to the issuance of official receipts and other requirements in operating a business.

Aside from the regular information dissemination activities, Equiña said they are also conducting door to door tax campaign.

In addition, BIR is also intensifying collection of capital gains tax for sale of real properties and estate tax for deceased owners of real properties.

The BIR campaign dubbed Oplan Kandado aims to work for the closure of establishments found violating revenue and tax collection guidelines. This also covers establishments which fail to declare actual income.

Equiña also said that, construction of infrastructure projects in the province has contributed much in meeting the tax collection target.

She particularly mentioned the millions of infra projects in Antique way back in 2009 that push up the tax collection of the province due to withholding tax taken from the suppliers and contractors.

This year, Equina said they are looking forward to more infra projects like school buildings, roads and bridges not just to speed up tax collection but also spur development in the countryside. (JCM/PSM/PIA6 Antique)
