 CALASIAO – After several months of exerting efforts to surpass its tax target, the premier tax agency in Region -1  landed top 3 among  offices that hit their tax collection goal.

According to Revenue District Chief -4 Chief Merlyn Vicente, her office exceeded by P27, 901,656.17 or 8.02% increase its tax target of P375, 747,656.17 by collecting  P347, 846,000 amid the lethargic business atmosphere in the two cities and 13 towns in Central Pangasinan.

 Tax target is given by the national government as indicator for all revenue district offices in the country to collect the new national tax target for this year.

RDO-4 collected P286, 258, 068.99 on August 2016.

Despite the shortfall in the past, Vicente and her hardworking staff soldiered on by exceeding the July and August tax targets and those in the same months last year.

“I have to stretch out my examiners in buttressing our collection,” she cited.

She said RDO-4 was given by the national office a tax target of more than P4 billion this year.

The highest and lowest collectors last August were 1) RDO-6 Eastern Pangasinan; 2) RDO-3 La Union; 3) RDO-4 Central Pangasinan; 4) RDO-1 Ilocos Norte; 5) RDO-2 Ilocos Sur, and 6) RDO-5 Western Pangasinan.

She said the BIR Eastern Pangasinan that is based in Urdaneta City was unstoppable on its rampage as the top most tax collectors since January because of the burgeoning business activities like the Tarlac-Pangasinan La Union Express Way (TPLEX) being built there.

A lot of investors and lot buyers are going  in Urdaneta City,” Vicente quipped.

Quezon City BIR Regional Director lately called Vicente as one of the most workaholic executives of the bureau.

 She came to the office earlier and left late after office hour”.

De Guzman was the regional director of BIR Region 1 last year and January this year She was succeeded  last February by Teresita Dizon.

The region has a tax target of P14 billion this year.
