The Bureau of Internal Revenue has closed three out of 77 business establishments in Negros Oriental under Oplan Kandado. {{more}}

Oplan Kandado is a program of the Bureau of Internal Revenue to collect the right amount of taxes and imposes discipline on delinquent taxpayers.

According to Revenue District Officer Cresencio Agad, BIR-79 said they have exhausted all chances they can give for the business establishment owners to comply with the due tax obligations with the BIR.

Recently, a grocery store in Dumaguete was closed down by BIR through the Oplan Kandado team led by Atty. Nenette Epon, Chief of the Legal Division of the BIR. The owner failed to provide the necessary evidence and proof that they had complied with tax due obligations.

Chief Agad said they sent two notices to the owners in order to give enough chance to settle their obligations with the BIR. The owner has a standing tax obligation of more than P300,000 after they failed to pay more than 30 percent of the real income based on the investigation of the BIR.

Agad said all three establishments that were closed through the Oplan Kandado program showed no violent reactions and resistance. He said they used all diplomatic ways to serve and implement the closure order so as not to embarrass the store owners.

He clarified that the closure order for establishments is coming from the BIR Commissioners in the national office. Their obligation is only to give recommendations based on the evidences and documents that they have gathered.

The closure order mandates that the establishment must be closed for at least five days before it can operate again even if it has settled tax obligations with the BIR.

The RDO has warned the business establishment owners that have received notices from the BIR to settle their obligations immediately before the closure order will be released. The Oplan Kandado should also serve as warning to all delinquent taxpayers to settle their obligations on time. (PNA)
