CALASIAO – Maria Isabel B. Utit and Ariel M. Calabia remained unscathed by the first revamp of all six revenue district office (RDO) chiefs in Region-1 after the Duterte Administration released on August 15 the Revenue Travel Assignment Order No. 168-2016 for 55 RDO chiefs all over the country

The RTA’s No. 168-2016  signed by Bureau of Internal Revenue’s Commissioner Ceasar R. Dulay read: “The concerned officials are directed to report to their new assignments on or before August 31, 2016. They shall strictly comply with the provision of Revenue Memorandum Order No. 38-2011 dated September 16, as amended by Revenue Memorandum Order No. 39-2011 dated October 15, 2011, regarding turn-over of all accountabilities and compliance to issued RTAOs covering transfer of personnel. This order takes effect immediately.”

 Utit, a Certified Public Accountant-Lawyer, and Calabia are the present RDO chiefs of Urdaneta City and Laoag City, respectively.
The latest RTAO showed that RDO-2 chief Eduardo Obero based in Vigan City, Ilocos Sur was assigned to head RDO-52 in Paranaque City; RDO-3 OIC Chief Luis Alberto, Jr based in San Fernando City, La Union was assigned as OIC RDO-61 chief in Gumaca, Quezon; RDO- 4 Chief Fely Simon based here was assigned as RD0-34 chief in Paco, Pandacan, Sta. Ana Areas, and RD0-5 Chief Josephine Catamco based in Alaminos City, Pangasinan was assigned as OIC –RDO chief of RDO-87 in Catbalogan, Samar.
The new RDO bosses in the Ilocos Region are RDO-2 Chief Aldo B. Esmena (Ilocos Sur), RDO-3 Chief Ernesto Mangabat (La Union), RDO-4 Chief Merlyn Vicente (Central Pangasinan), and RDO-5 Chief Jose Maria Hernandez (Western Pangasinan).
Meanwhile, the regional director of BIR Region 1 disagreed to the tag that the agency is one of the most corrupt offices in the country.
“It takes two to tango, ‘di ba? Hinde lang po taga BIR, mga taxpayers diyan na naiimbistigahan siguro nabibigatan sila sa laki ng assessment bribing examiners nandoon ang temptation,” Director Marina de Guzman stressed.
She said  98 percent of the BIR’s tax collection comes from the voluntary taxpayers whom  BIR personnel do not directly transact with.
De Guzman said it was only two percent of the taxpayers that the BIR personnel have to physically make contact to prompt them to pay the correct taxes.
She  said BIR Commissioner Dulay suspended the much criticized Electronic- Letter of Authority (ELA), letters, and notices to these two percent of taxpayers.
De Guzman said the tax agency had to soldier- on for the 14 billion pesos it was mandated to collect in the four provinces’ region this year despite its being 42 percent higher than the previous year’s tax goal.
“380 lang ang personal namin kulang pero sa plaintilla ng Executive Order 366 ang aming warm bodies ay 835. We are working on a 45 percent workforce lang po rito. Nakikiusap po ako sa mga taxpayers, account tax agents magkapit bisig tayo kung may alam kayo na hinde na cover sa ating tax data base ipag paalam ninyo lang po sa aming opisina 8:00 to 5:00 pm,” she stressed.
