The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) has transferred 21 key field officials to enhance tax collection for the remaining months of the year.
The revamp ordered by BIR Commissioner Caesar R. Dulay affected mostly revenue district officers (RDOs) assigned in various cities nationwide.
The bureau has been under instructions from Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III to redouble tax collection to reduce revenue losses caused by coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
The BIR expects to raise more than P2 trillion this year.
Dominguez challenged the men and women in the service not only to hit the collection target but exceed it.
Among those given new assignments were Vicente Gamad, Jr. from Marikina City to Isabela; Abdullah Bandrang from Angeles City to Marikina; Elmer Carolino, from West Bulacan to Malabon-Navotas; Jefferson Tabboga from Malabon-Navotas to West Bulacan.
