URDANETA CITY- A high official of the Revenue District Office-6 of the Bureau of Internal Revenue hailed the exemplary tax collection efforts of his bosses who are based here.

The source who asked anonymity said that the 99.63 percent collection rate, three months before the end of the year 2010 is due to the pro-active leadership of RDO Chief Merlyn DV Vicente and Assistant Revenue District Officer Maria Bernadette Mangaoang.

RDO-6 has been given by the central office of the tax bureau a target of P695, 670,000.00 for year 2010. But as of September this year it has already collected a stunning P693, 088, 970.51.

In the same month last year it pathetically collected P474, 900,385.85 or 69.53% of its tax goal.

Meanwhile, Mangaoang welcomed the $54.3 million appropriation to the BIR from the $434 million Millennium Challenge Corporation given by the U.S government to President Benigno Aquino III recently.

The sum is intended to computerize the bureau.

“We welcome that kasi tayo naman ay open sa technological innovation. In fact computerized na po ang BIR. It’s a matter of embracing the existing computer system that we have,” Mangaoang said.

She said that the computerization will contribute more efficiency to the work of the BIR on its integrated tax system.

Mangaoang said the amnesty given by the tax bureau called Abatement Program has given a chance for taxpayers to correct the erroneous data they filed.

She said those who availed of the program for the period September 29 to October 29 this year would not be charged with a 25 surcharge and a compromise penalty.

She explained that the program compliments the Run After Tax Payers (RATE) aggressively implemented under the watch of Commissioner Kim Henares.

The latest high profile personalities charged with fraud under RATE are Social Security Service President Romulo Neri and his predecessor Thelmo Cunanan.
