Cagayan de Oro City (6 January) -- BIR Cagayan de Oro announced that it has exceeded its collection goal for the month of December 2009 repeating a sterling performance it made in November 2009.

Tentative figures showed that BIR CDO has collected P215 million against goal of P198 million or a surplus of near to P17 million.
Against the same period last year (2008) which posted a collection of P142 million, the surplus is 71.5 million or 50%, the difference is by leaps and bounds and emphatically pronouncing an effective leadership in 2009.
The 2009 whole collections surpassed that of 2008 by 200 million or 10% and Regional Director Esmeralda M. Tabule announced in a ceremony that RDO 98 (CDO) is the best performing district in the entire region.
