BIR–Capiz Surpasses Jan to Oct Target
The amount is approximately 2.24 percent higher than the P469,729,000 goal for the ten-month period of the current year.
BIR – RDO No. 72 head Gil Tabanda said the accomplishment was a result of a massive tax campaign like seminars and dialogues, relative to tax collection.
He stressed controllable taxes like withholdings on compensation and source and capital gains tax have significantly contributed to the collection.
“Our collection in October has a growth rate of 26.07 percent compared to the same period last year,” he noted, adding that the RDO is maximizing its convincing efforts to further increase revenues.
Meanwhile, the P16-million payment of the Robinsons Land Corporation (RLC) last June has contributed to the 10-month cumulative report of collection of the BIR – RDO No. 72.
RLC is planning to put a first-class shopping center here that will feature a full-service mall.
The accomplishment is also attributed to the BIR’s much-needed reforms instituted to improve its business processes and systems.
During the period, BIR – Capiz has notably closed two business firms in view of its “Oplan Kandado” campaign in the province. The closure orders came after the owners failed to comply with revenue laws.
The BIR has also brought its services on the taxpayers’ doorsteps through the “BIR on Wheels” to encourage taxpayers’ voluntary compliance.
