The Bureau of Internal Revenue – District Office No. 72 based in Roxas City conducted a two-day webinar on withholding taxes, year-end adjustments and other tax updates recently.
“This is an annual event held every last quarter of the year to remind taxpayers of their tax obligations and to inform them of newly released tax issuances,” said BIR RDO No. 72 head Eralen De Aro.
The first day of the webinar was participated in by private Individuals and representatives from several corporations while the second day was organized for the national government agencies (NGAs), government owned and controlled corporations (GOCCs), National High Schools, universities and other government agencies.
De Aro welcomed the attendees and presented the district’s collection performance and Withholding Agents’ contribution to the district’s collection.
The webinar gave emphasis on the different withholding taxes and applicable adjustments, the new Revenue Issuances such as the extension of Estate Tax Amnesty, salient features of Republic Act No. 11534 otherwise known as Corporate Recovery and Tax Incentives Enterprise (CREATE Act 2021), BIR Mobile Taxpayer Identification Verifier Application, taxation on Social Media Influencers, introduction of chatbot named “Revie,” the third revision of Zonal Value of real properties in Roxas City and province of Capiz and other relevant updates.
These topics were discussed exhaustively by Revenue Officers Marivic Villanueva, Lalaine Delmoro, Ma. Chielo Esponga of the RDO No. 72 Assessment Section.
“First and foremost, I would like to thank the Almighty Father for His continuous guidance and protection in this time of pandemic. Also, I am grateful to everyone especially to the taxpayers of Roxas City and the Province of Capiz for their time in attending the district’s webinar,” De Aro said.
She also thanked Assistant Revenue District Officer Ricaredo O. Balderas, Section Chiefs and the revenuers of RDO’s “Team Roxas Waswas” for their support and effort to make the event a success.
“This is a difficult and challenging time for all of us, however, the Revenuers of BIR Roxas City will continue to do their civic duty not only in collecting taxes but also to help and inform the taxpaying public of the latest revenue issuances, tax news and updates because they are our partners for making our country a better place not only for us but also for the future generations,” she stressed.
