The Bureau of Internal Revenue, Revenue Region No.12 in Bacolod City, is preparing to submit cases against two tax evaders, whose identities it withheld, for under-declaration of income by more than 30 percent for evaluation, BIR regional director Araceli Francisco said yesterday.
The cases filed under the BIR’s program called “Run After Tax Evaders” will be submitted to the BIR deputy commissioner for legal and inspection affairs, Francisco said.
RATE cases are filed against tax evaders who under declare their income by more than 30 percent, and fail to file their VAT returns, register and issue receipts or invoices, she said.
Revenue increase by 6%
The Bureau of Internal Revenue, Revenue Region No.12 in Bacolod City exceeded its 2010 goal by P296,595,431.09 giving them an “excellent rating” performance, BIR regional director Araceli Francisco said yesterday.
Francisco said they were able to exceed their goal by 6.38 percent as one of the challenges that Commissioner Kim Henares posed on them.
She said that compared to the 2009 collection, there is a big difference because of the sugar cooperatives, which are exempted in the advance value-added tax under the Republic Act 9520, or the Philippine Cooperative Code of 2008.
