PIA Press Release

BIR Ifugao overshoots collection target

by Vency D. Bulayungan

LAGAWE, Ifugao (23 April) -- With a robust and healthy economy due to the fiscal reforms initiated by the Administration, the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) here is happy to announce that its collections this year has increased by P1,869,847.46 as of March.

Atty. Elena Rillera, Revenue district Officer here said that their office has exceeded their goal as compared to last year. "We are looking forward for an increase and with the privatization of the Magat Dam located in Alfonso Lista, we are confident that our collection will improve," she said.

The cumulative goal for 2007 is P17,662,792 but the collection as of March 2007 is 18,088262.37. "This is an indication that we have done our part as the collecting agency of the government," Rillera said.

Villa Bulayungan, Chief of the Collection Section said that the tax mapping scheme, payment of business taxes and compliance of withholding officers in the Local government Units contributed to the improvement of the collection.

"The RDO spearheaded actual taxmapping activities in the 11 municipalities in the province," Bulayungan said. The said activity aims to establish cordial relationship with taxpayers by giving assistance thru tax information drive and verification of taxpayers' compliance requirements during the actual visitation of taxpayer's establishment and its branches.

One of the objectives of taxmapping is to adopt a unified approach in the discharge of tax mapping functions to forestall inconsistencies and conflicts in the application of rules and regulations in the course of inspection of the establishments and contact with taxpayers or their representatives and to emphasize the importance of courteousness, respectfulness and firmness in dealing with taxpayers and show them that a cordial relationship can be maintained between the taxpayer and the revenue officers.

Bulayungan also disclosed that contractors of government projects paid their business taxes this year which added to the increase in their collection.

"With the continuous information and education activities of our agency, we were able to convince the people to pay their taxes which will in turn benefit them," she said. (PIA-Ifugao) [top]
