BIR opens email address to receive "No OR" complaints

by A. Lumaque

Roxas City (25 September) -- The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) has come up with an electronic mail address that will receive reports for complaints on non-issuance of official receipts (OR) by business establishments.

The report can be sent to no-or-complaint@bir.gov.ph for the appropriate action of concerned BIR office nationwide.

"Just e-mail the name and address of the establishment being complained," said the announcement posted in the BIR website.

The bureau's new measure to monitor issuance of ORs is part of a more stringent matching of taxpayers' income and withholding tax payments. BIR officials believe that there are revenues to raise from enhanced matching of taxpayers' income declaration, as well as their withholding tax payments.

The BIR has also the Run After Tax Evaders (RATE) program aimed to raise the much needed revenues for the government.

RATE is a program of the BIR against tax evaders, wherein the agency files cases against tax delinquents regardless of their class or status. Under the RATE program, the BIR has filed cases against movie actors, celebrities, singers, businessmen and politicians.

The BIR has exceeded its August collection target as it collected P79.5 billion as a result of these enhanced measures.

President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and Department of Finance Secretary Margarito Teves have repeatedly said that the government won't be introducing new taxes but would just be enhancing existing ones. (PIA) [top]
