PIA Press Release

BIR urges public to demand receipts

Dipolog City (9 June) -- The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) district 91 here has recently called on the public to always ask for official receipts in buying goods or in engaging services from public and private institutions/establishments.

Rudy Suello, administrative officer of the local BIR office, appealed to the consuming public to always demand official receipts following reports that most people are unmindful of asking receipts when buying goods or engaging services from professionals.

Suello also disclosed that when his officemate bought some goods recently, he was given a receipt issued in the year 2006 yet. This, he said, was a "clear illegal deed on the part of the issuing establishment."

The BIR, on the other hand, is calling on the people to help in its campaign to increase tax collection by insisting to ask for official receipts for any goods and services.

"Every time a customer fails to ask for an official receipt, the government is at the losing end since the BIR cannot collect the taxes from such purchase or service," Suello said. He also appealed to all private and public institutions to help the government through the "simple act of issuing receipts."

Suello revealed that the BIR is now intensifying its tax campaign with its program dubbed "Run After Tax Evaders" (RATE), which is a nationwide campaign aimed at running after tax evaders. He, however, said the businessmen here are good taxpayers.

Aside from RATE, the BIR would also intensify its "Oplan Kandado" campaign against business entities that failed to declare their real income. Tax mappers are now being fielded to conduct monitoring among the establishments and professionals in the city. These BIR agents will make sure that BIR regulations are properly followed and observed by the businesses and professionals to avoid penalties. (PF/PIA-ZN) [top]
