BUKIDNON ONLINE EXCLUSIVE | MALAYBALAY CITY NEWS | BUKIDNON NEWS | BUSINESS IN BUKIDNON – Current Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) Revenue District Officer Samer Muti will be assigned to a new area next year, according to BIR Commissioner Kim Henares.
Henares told Bukidnon Online via text message that Samer Muti will be assigned to Butuan City next year. She said that this is part of the agency’s plan to reshuffle at least 45 revenue district offices starting next year. Henares also stressed that the move is in no way politically motivated. She stressed that Muti and 44 other BIR revenue district officers will be assigned to other areas.
Interestingly, there are 125 BIR revenue district offices in the entire Philippines but only 45 will undergo reshuffling.
Muti will begin his new assignment on January 3, 2011.
News reports state that BIR’s plan to shuffle these RDOs will be conducted in an effort to improve collection and plug revenue leaks. Henares was quoted as saying that the shuffle is “performance-based.”
Henares said that the shuffle is to “reward people for their good performance. At the same time, we give those who were not able to live up to their performance time to step up.”
Myrna Bernardo will take Muti’s place. Myrna Bernardo is the officer in charge revenue district officer in Tacurong and Koronadal. Starting January 3, 2011, Bernardo will handle the Malaybalay and Cagayan de Oro BIR offices.
So the question now is — do you think Muti’s new Butuan assignment is a sign of good performance or what?
