No sugar tax moratorium
CONCERNS TO BE
RELAYED TO HENARES
BY CARLA GOMEZ
Bureau of Internal Revenue Region 12 officials yesterday said they could not grant a 120-day moratorium on Revenue Regulation 11-2014 that imposes a one percent creditable withholding tax on raw sugar and molasses upon withdrawal from the mills.
All they could say was that they would relay the concerns raised, especially by small sugar farmers, to BIR Commissioner Kim Henares.
The BIR Region 12 officials led by Regional Director Mryna Leonida and chief legal counsel Ric Cabrera held a dialog with sugar industry stakeholders yesterday to explain the RR 11-2014 requirements at their office in Barangay Taculing, Bacolod City.

The legal counsel of Energreen Power Development and Management Inc. said they will deliver the contracted power to Central Negros Electric Cooperative starting this month with the full delivery of 18 megawatts in May.
Ernesto Tabao said yesterday that this is the result of the extension of the delivery date granted by the Ceneco Board to Energreen that will deliver power to Ceneco on a staggered basis.
