MANILA, April 1 — The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) is head over heels on its campaign to increase its revenue collections through its "Premyo sa Resibo" (PSR) campaign as it opted to hold its monthly draw for March during the Communication and News Exchange (CNEX) Forum at the Philippine Information Agency (PIA) Conference Room in Quezon City on Friday.

BIR Deputy Commissioner Nelson Aspe explained to government media that everybody is qualified to join PSR promo, including government employees, and thus exhorted the public to always ask for the receipt of purchase from any business establishment nationwide.

He said the PSR project is one way of increasing the government's tax collections, aside from helping detect if a business establishment is operating without Tax Identification Number (TIN)

Aida Simborio, PSR project director, confirmed that the BIR has already increased its collections by about 36 percent since the project was launched around five years ago while some 6,900 business establishments have already been found having fake TIN.

Before the Friday draw for the March winner of P1 million, Aspe, PIA Director General Atty. Jose A. Fabia and Simborio awarded to Atty. Pedro Redona, a retired government employee from Southern Luzon, his prize of P1 million as the 141st winner for February.

Favia tapped the computer key in the electronic device in drawing the two weekly winning numbers amounting to P25,000 each while Aspe did the draw for the monthly P1 million winner for March, the 142nd.

To join the promo, Simborio said one would just text PSR (space) TIN of the establishment (space) O.R. number (space) total amount and send to 9777 (single entry) or 9778 (multiple entry). (PNA) scs/ogi
