When asked if the Central Pangasinan based office will fail to attain its target this year, she has the following answers: “ Hoping against hope finger’s cross we are keeping our goal of P2.112 billion” Mangaoang explained that the withheld taxes paid by contractors through the village are through cash or check. She said the same mode of payment from the contractors that have been withheld by Government Owned & Controlled Corporation where the latter remitted to the BIR. The only difference she explained was when the contractor has a contract with the national government like the Department of Publics & Highway and the National Irrigation Administration. “The withholding agent is the national government agencies that do it through TRA,” she said. TRA stands for Tax Remittances Advisory (MCO).
