Remarkable gov't tax collection lauded

Manila (1 June) -- THE remarkable tax collection performance of the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) during the first four months of the year has drawn kudos from both the government and private sector.

Civil Service Commission Chairman Francisco Duque III after meeting with Revenue Commissioner Joel Tan-Torres and other revenue officials said that the efficiency and dedication of the men and women of the BIR is worthy of emulation by other officials and employees in government.

Similar congratulatory notes were also expressed by Over-All Deputy Ombudsman Orlando Casimiro, Quezon City Treasurer Vic Endriga and president of the Lyceum University of the Philippines (LUP) Roberto Laurel who signed separate memoranda of agreement with Tan-Torres on various issues aimed at enhancing the delivery of services to taxpayers.

Records showed that the BIR generated a total take of P265 billion from January to April, which was P21.1 billion higher than its goal for the period. In April alone, more than P91.2 billion was raised which was P4.7 billion higher than the target.

The BIR is also expected to exceed its collection target for May amounting to P79.9 billion. Tan-Torres expressed confidence that the BIR will hit its May target as the agency's take as of May 24 already stood at more than P40 billion, or P7 billion more than its collection in May 2009.
