LEGAZPI CITY – P1 million, anyone?
If you want to win that, then ask for the receipt of your commodities purchased, services paid, and join the Instant ‘Premyo sa Resibo’ (PSR) of the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) and be the next instant millionaire.
BIR Bicol Regional Director Diosdado Mendoza said a lady from Baguio City won the P1 million stake in the PSR’s August anniversary draw last Aug. 31 held at the SM San Lazaro.
According to Mendoza, aside from the chance of winning instant cash as high as P1 million and other exciting prizes, joining the ‘Premyo sa Resibo’ promo is also one of the agency’s flagship projects to encourage consumers to demand for receipts, which eventually is a big help in the country’s revenue collection.
He added that ‘Premyo sa Resibo’ will also determine whether establishments from where purchases are made are duly registered or not and beef up campaign against tax evaders and in monitoring the tax declaration of commercial establishments.
“The purpose or the PSR is to encourage buyers of commodities and services to always ask for receipts. This will help the government determine the true gross sales/receipts of commercial establishments or businesses,” Mendoza said.
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 TIN No. of O.R., Amount and send it 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.
