Delinquent Taxpayers urged to compromise

March 11 - 17, 2017

MAASIN CITY - The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) is now willing to enter into easier compromise settlement agreements with delinquent taxpayers, as a means to generate more revenues for the taxcollecting agency.

“We encourage taxpayers to compromise as long as it’s within the law, to settle whatever pending assessments they have,” Commissioner of Internal Revenue Caesar Dulay said during the tax campaign that kicked off last March 14.

The Comprehensive Tax Compromise Agreement is a negotiation settlement scheme, intended only for those who have delinquent accounts and other unpaid tax liabilities.

Dulay also disclosed that their bureau is setting up a national goal to reach 1.829 trillion in collections for 2017.

The tax campaign drive focused on tax payment awareness and the need to mobilize the business sector’s support for the payment of taxes.

The event was attended by BIR top officials and attended by representatives coming from the business sectors.

Among those who attended were Dr. Levi Tan, Eleine Quirong CPA, former councilor Rene Hatayna, Southern Leyte Chamber of Commerce and Industry president Epifania Sy and Southern Leyte Times’ Dr. Gloria Markines Reyes.

The event is part of the information campaign to encourage local taxpayers to pay the right taxes at the right time.(By MARK L. RIMAS)
