URDANETA CITY – The top honcho of the Bureau of Internal Revenue that covers eastern Pangasinan warns taxpayers not to transact business with BIR personnel who are not designated officer of the One Time Transaction (ONETT).
ONETT covers sales of real property, estate and donor’s taxes, and exchange of properties.
Atty. Beverly Milo, the chief of Revenue District Office-6, added that it includes also registration, closure, and opening of business.
She cited for instance Perla P. Mondina as not authorized to transact business with the paying public.
The RDO-6 boss, in a paid advertisement, said Mondina has been declared by her office as absent without leave (AWOL).
Atty. Milo said that RDO-6 is not liable incase taxpayers transact business with unauthorized BIR personnel, fixer, and other unscrupulous persons hanging in and out of the tax office.
“This applies also to other current employees unauthorized to receive and process documents of taxpayers. All transactions must be handled either by the ONETT officer or the officer of the day whichever is applicable. Transactions made outside of the BIR premises are considered as unofficial,” she stressed.
She warns that any reports concerning these individuals would be legally acted upon depending on the document or evidence submitted to her by the complainant.
The no-nonsense Atty. Milo has her attention focused nowadays against scalawags and criminal minds that lurk here thus undermining the government’s efficient tax administration campaign (Mortz C. Ortigoza).
BIR-Western Pangasinan exceeds its goal again
ALAMINOS CITY – The chief of the Bureau of Internal Revenue here who supervises almost all of the first and second congressional districts of Pangasinan bares how his office exceeded again the February 2012 revenue collection goal.
Mr. Quirino Ramos said that based on his February 2012 collection he collected P51, 065,260.161 versus the goal given by the national tax office.
“The goal given to me in February was P49, 209.000,” he stressed.
