BAGUIO CITY – Do you want  to win P1 Million? Then ask for receipt and join the Instant ‘Premyo sa Resibo’ (PSR) promo  of the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) and be the next city resident to  be an instant millionaire win.

BIR Regional Director Atty. Norberto Vitug  confirmed in an  interview that a  as a lady from Baguio  won    P1 million in the  PSR’s August Anniversary draw  held August 31 at the SM San Lazaro.

According to  Vitug, aside from the chance of winning instant cash as high as P1 million) and other exciting prizes,  joining the ‘Premyo sa Resibo’ (PSR) promo  is also helping in advocating consciousness on the giving/asking for receipts, which eventually is a big help in the country’s revenue collection and for the BIR’s campaign against tax evaders and in monitoring the tax declaration of commercial establishments.  

The purpose of the PSR is to encourage buyers of commodities and services to always ask for receipts. This will help the government determine the true true gross sales/receipts  of  commercial  establishments or businesses, Vitug said.

The PSR is a texting promo open to Smart, Talk N Text, Globe, Touch Mobile and Sun Cellular Prepaid and Postpaid subscribers nationwide. What the public need to do is to ask for receipt, and text PSR(space)TIN No. of O.R.(space)O.R. No.(Space) O.R. Amount and send it to 9777(for single entry) or 9778(for multiple entry). For multiple entries the participant is entitled to 1 entry for every P100 reflected in their O.R. and amount will be rounded out to the next hundred for fair play (For example P230 O.R amount – entitles a participant to 3 entries). Winners will get a congratulatory text from 9778 and a confirmation call from PhilWeb.

Vitug  urged the public to join in the  said promo  as he  announced that the next PSR monthly draw will be held at the SM City Baguio on October 17.

Meanwhile,  Vitug  called on the taxi drivers  to  issue receipts and for the  riding public to ask for a receipt every time they ride a taxi cab.

 ‘We have noticed that there were still taxi drivers that are not issuing receipts and it will be hard for us to monitor or apprehend all of them, so we decided to convene the officials of different taxi associations  next week to explain to them the advantages of issuing receipt,’ Vitug said.

Aside from avoiding paying a minimum fine of P10,000 for non-issuance of receipts, once apprehended by the Land Transportation Franchise and Regulation Bureau (LTFRB) or the Land Transportation Office (LTO), Vitug also stressed that issuance of receipts is also good for the city’s economy and tourism sector.          

‘Malaking promosyon din ito para sa turismo ng Baguio, at sa buong Cordillera. Malaki ang impact nito di lang sa bansa, gayun din sa abroad, kapag kumalat ang balita mula sa mga local at foreign tourist, na ang mga taxi sa Baguio ay safe sakyan at may mga courteous na drayber na kusang nag-iisyu ng resibo at nagbibigay ng tamang sukli,’ Vitug said. **Lito Dar/PIA
