BIR urges taxpayers to avail of e-services lounge facility
Tacloban City (June 28) -- BIR Eastern Visayas Regional Director Alert Alocilja encouraged the local media and the general taxpaying public to avail of the e-Services Lounge facility which is now operational at the BIR regional office.
Director Alocilja made the call during the Harampang Ha PIA media forum at the Gerry's Grille in Tacloban City.
The BIR regional director said that the modern facility is open to all taxpayers who wish to avail of the BIR's electronic services such as eTIN or electronic taxpayer identification number application; or eFPS or electronic filing and payment system, among others.
The e-Services Lounge is strategically located at the lobby of RR-14's regional office for the convenience of walk-in tax clients. The facility is manned by competent revenue personnel who also cater to official phone-in queries particularly on TIN verification.
Director Alocilja reiterates her invitation to all taxpayers-constituents in the Leyte-Samar region to make use of the BIR's electronic services for fast and convenient on-line transactions with the BIR.
The Lounge provides taxpayers prompt and convenient on-line services for specific electronic transactions like the eTIN which allows one to get his Taxpayer's Identification Number on-line; the eTPS for filing of tax returns; the PayBIR to download the payment confirmation reflecting one's mobile payment of taxes and/or annual business registration fee; e-broad to view payments; e-complaint to report erring BIR personnel, among other services.
The good Director informed that the establishment of the electronic services project is designed essentially to demonstrate the Bureau's dynamic desire to boost quality and prompt service to its valued taxpayers in Eastern Visayas Region.
The general taxpaying public who wish to avail of the BIR's electronic services may look for the officer-in-charge of the Taxpayers' eServices Lounge during office hours from Mondays to Fridays. (PIA 8) [top]
