BUTUAN CITY – The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) Regional District Office No. 104 (RDO-104) in the Caraga Region conferred Tuesday a recognition to Trento town in Agusan del Sur province for its PHP20 million worth of withholding tax remittances for 2022.

In a ceremony, Trento Mayor William Calvez received the "Tulong-tulong sa Pagbangon, Kapit Kamay sa Pag-ahon, Buwis na Wasto, Alay Para sa Pilipino” Award from RDO-104 Revenue District Officer Marco Antonio Calo at the town hall.

Last year, the municipality managed to remit PHP20.43 million worth of withholding taxes to the RDO-104.

“The withholding tax remittances of the local government unit (LGU) of Trento contributed to the collection goal of RDO-104 last year,” the LGU said in a statement Tuesday.

The RDO-104 also recognized Trento municipal treasurer Luzminda Lanuza and municipal accountant Brylle Datoy for their “invaluable support through the prompt and proper remittance of withholding taxes” last year.

The Tulong-tulong sa Pagbangon, Kapit Kamay sa Pag-ahon, Buwis na Wasto, Alay Para sa Pilipino is a tax campaign launched by the BIR in February this year.

The campaign targets the accurate, efficient, and fair collection of taxes with the support of taxpayers, especially entrepreneurs and emerging businesses in the country. (PNA)
