The overwhelming response from texters who texted in their receipts during last year’s contest run has prompted the organizers of Premyo sa Resibo to give away 1 Million each week starting January 19, 2007.
Since the launch of Premyo sa Resibo, BIR was able to track about 72,000 unregistered Tax Identification Numbers (TIN). This is a big help in the tax collection effort of our government as they’ll be able to run after those establishments. It also has taught consumers to always ask for receipts when purchasing goods from business establishments. Check out the premyo sa resibo web site for more details.
