Sep 5, 2018 @ 18:18

Quezon 3rd District Representative Danilo Suarez on September 5 said called on the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) and the Bureau of Customs (BOC) to be consistent in meeting the government’s collection targets.

This after the Bureau of Treasury (BTr) reported that the the government collected P1.41 trillion in the first half of 2018.

This is 9% higher than the government’s collection target.

“We note the improved collection efficiency of the revenue-generating agencies for 2018. Now, the test is ‘consistency,'” Suarez said.

“The BIR and BOC may be doing well this year but last year, they fell short of their revenue targets,” he added.
