Tax Campaign in Bohol Philippines

BIR Commissioner Joel L. Tan-Torres' Tax Campaign theme and slogan for 2010 "Making the Public Know" (RMO No, 3-2010) will be launched for this revenue district on Wednesday, February 17 at the Island City, Dao, Tagbilaran City. The activity will start at 8:30 a.m. with a motorcade from the BIR office at M. Torralba St. (back of Gov. Celestino Gallares Memorial Hospital) moving through the main city streets. The aim is to awaken our tax conscious Boholanos that the advent of the Income Tax filing season is here which deadline is on April 15. A short program will follow at the Island City Mall hopefully to end once again with penned pledges of support by taxpayers towards the achievement of collection goals. CY 2009 collection of BIR-Bohol registered a .03% overshot of the 2009 given goal while January 2010 collection summed a 1.8% increase over last year's collection even with a February 1 registration deadline. 

This launching activity is set to kick off the start of CY 2010 tax filing as well as set off a new tandem of tax collection efforts by newly installed Revenue District Officer for BIR, Bohol RDO Romeo E. Naranjo and Assistant Revenue District Officer Tohammie L. Yahya. The two revenuers strongly invite all taxpayers particularly VAT taxpayers, accounting practitioners as well as profession practitioners to join in the said launching. A series of Tax Seminar on BIR updates will follow thereafter. RR 13, Cebu had its launching last February 5 with the four (4) districts under it excluding Bohol.

It is hoped that the Boholano taxpaying public will again give 100% priority concern to this activity as BIR's partners in its mission of tax collection. A well educated taxpayer is a compliant taxpayer - is the vision of the revenuers. For inquiries please dial Globelines 501-8488 or PLDT 411-2012. (ERLomantas, BIR)
