CATARMAN, Northern Samar – The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) initiated a tax campaign to encourage and help taxpayers understand the importance of paying the correct taxes and availing themselves of its programs on March 14.

According to Revenue District Officer James Balagapo, the tax campaign sought taxpayers’ support in generating funds for the country’s economic recovery.

“With the government’s call to simplify tax filings by introducing the ‘file and pay anywhere’ system and allowing most of the tax processes to be done online, the BIR has adopted an integrated digital tax process to assist taxpayers with their tax-related concerns. These services can be accessed 24/7 through the BIR website,” Balagapo said.

He added that BIR officers organized dialogues with different sectors to discuss specific tax policies and procedures and tax law and regulation changes.

Adelaida Tan, a participant from Victoria in Northern Samar, expressed appreciation to BIR officers for keeping her well-informed about the new tax laws, rules, and regulations.

“I own two commercial buildings, one in Victoria and the other in Catarman. Today, I learned that I need to register my commercial building in Catarman with the BIR to receive another official receipt for my rental business,” Tan said.
