Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) Commissioner Caesar Dulay is optimistic the agency will hit its Php2.039 trillion 2018 collections target due to the adoption of several reforms like the easier filing of Income Tax Returns (ITR).
On Monday, Dulay personally went to various revenue offices in Metro Manila, beginning with the Revenue Region No. 7 office located at the top floor of Fisher Mall at the corner of Roosevelt Avenue and Quezon Avenue in Quezon City.
BIR has extended until Monday this week the deadline for ITR filing after April 15 fell on a Sunday. Dulay said it is easier to file ITR now after the agency has improved the protocol for electronic filing (e-filing) and made this available 24/7.
