Kim S. Jacinto-Henares, Commissioner of the Bureau of Internal Revenues (BIR) delivers a speech during the launch of the 2015 BIR calendar at the agency's headquarters in Quezon City, December 22, 2014.

Personnel of government main tax collector Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) will  oblige  President-elect Rodrigo Duterte in his preference to abolish the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) as they indicated plans for a mass resignation on July 1, the first day of Duterte’s six-year term.

BIR officials and employees said they were offended when Duterte referred to the bureau as being one of the most corrupt agencies in government.

A ranking official said she will take the lead in resigning because she believes Duterte’s accusations against the bureau is “below the belt” and uncalled for without having  concrete proof  to substantiate his allegations.

Deputy commissioner Lilia Guillermo, one of the three deputies of BIR Commissioner Kim Henares, admitted she was hurt by Duterte’s tirades.

She said  she is now contemplating on filing  for an early retirement as a sign of protest.
“If asked for a courtesy resignation, I will comply,” Guillermo told The Daily Tribune when asked if she will take the lead in mass resignation at the bureau. The deputy has been working at the BIR for more than three decades.

Henares herself said she was hurt by Duterte’s allegation.
“I am hurting for my subordinates because I worked with them for six years and now their hard work is not being recognized,” Henares said.

Duterte in one of his midnight briefings in Davao City indicated his desire to abolish the “most corrupt agencies” in government which he said  are the Bureau of Customs, the Land Transportation Office (LTO) and the BIR.

“He is the President, he can do whatever he wants, that’s up to him,” Henares said on Duterte’s threat. Guillermo also questioned the motive of Duterte when he said that he wants the bureau and two other government agencies abolished so that rampant corruption in government will be lessened.

She added that it is hard to give advice, especially since she does not know what would be the priorities of Dulay in the agency that he will handle.

The outgoing BIR chief earlier said that it is up to Dulay whether he would continue or reform the plans and programs of the BIR.

  3. Praise God! Nawa ay tuluyan ng mabago ang Pilipinas sa pag-asenso at mawala ang mga walang pusong mga kawatan sa gobyerno na magnanakaw sa mahabang panahon. Puro pansarili lang ang iniisip. Hindi naman nila madadala sa hukay ang kanilang mga ninakaw.

  4. Do it, madaming papalit sa inyo mga bata na may mga bagong ideas at malamang puro lusensyado o puro professional, d un mga napunta lang sa puesto dahil malakas ang back up at siguradong gustong magtrabaho di gaya ng mga luma sana na sa lahat ng kalokohan pagdating sa pandadaya sa oras ng trabaho.
