BIR reshuffles field personnel to boost collections up to P850B

MANILA, Jan. 5 — The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) on Tuesday announced a reorganization of another batch of its 78 field officials to boost the agency’s chances of hitting its collection target for 2010 which is initially placed at between P800 to P850 billion.

BIR Commissioner Joel L. Tan-Torres said the latest personnel changes affected mostly revenue district officers (RDOs) and assistant RDOs assigned outside of Metro Manila, bringing to more than 120 field officials reshuffled during the past three months.

“The revamp is part of a bigger program of enhancing the tax administration and collection systems to raise more funds to support the various programs of the government in improving the lives of our people," Tan-Torres said.

Tan-Torres said the collection target is still moving as the Department of Budget Coordinating Council (DBCC) has yet to undertake consultations and dialogues with stakeholders in fixing the target.

"We have yet to discuss various issues including the over-all economic prospects and the effects of various tax eroding bills pending in Congress," he said. (PNA)
