BIR Bataan (Revenue District 20) urges taxpayers to use the e-payment channel of the agency especially now that province is under enhanced community quarantine.
“Take advantage of the e-payment portal of the BIR. File and pay anywhere”, said Asst. Revenue District Officer Atty. Dante Tan during their radio program “Usaping BIR” on Friday at local radio station 91.1 Sikat FM.
“You do not need to get out of your house as long you have internet”, for his part said BIR Bataan Admin and Human Resource Manager Gemo Espinosa.
Tan said there is instruction how to use the e-payment at the official website of their agency www.bir.gov.ph.
Revenue Officer Joseph Garcia said e-payment channels include GCash, Paymaya, LandBank Online, and DBP Onlinre.
Garcia said a memorandum circular issued by BIR allows taxpayers to file and pay anywhere to authorized agent banks.
“Ganito yan halimbawa ang home BIR mo ay BIR Bataan dahil nasa Bataan ang negosyo mo, inabot ka sa Olongapo o Manila dahil sa quarantine, pwede ka na magbayad dun as long na sa authorized agent bank ka magbabayad”. explained Espinosa in vernacular.
