PROVIDING CONVENIENT PAYMENT CHANNELS FOR THE TAXPAYING PUBLIC. The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) officially launched its partnership with digital financial services leader PayMaya to allow individual taxpayers to pay taxes on time and wherever they are using the PayMaya app. Soon, taxpayers can also pay through the BIR website using their mobile number linked to their PayMaya account via Pay with PayMaya as well as any credit, debit, and prepaid cards. Present during the launch were BIR Commissioner Caesar Dulay (2nd from left), PayMaya Founder and CEO Orlando Vea (2nd from right), BIR Deputy Commissioner Lanee David (leftmost) and PayMaya Head of Enterprise Mar Lazaro (rightmost).
With tax-filing season just around the corner, digital financial services leader PayMaya is offering Filipinos a new and hassle-free way to pay their taxes using the PayMaya app and soon also using the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) website.
By going to the Bills Pay section of the PayMaya app, individual taxpayers can skip the line and pay their taxes anywhere using only their mobile phones anytime, 24/7.
Soon, PayMaya will also be enabling the agency with a capability to accept payments from PayMaya users using only their mobile numbers through the BIR website, as well as a facility to allow Filipinos to pay taxes using any credit, debit, or prepaid card.
“We are happy to offer PayMaya as a new payment channel where individual Filipino taxpayers can easily remit their taxes, no matter where they are in the country,” said BIR Commissioner Caesar Dulay.
“We are proud to be enabling the BIR with new options for card and wallet payments through PayMaya. As more Filipinos go digital, the BIR is opening up secure, convenient, and reliable options to the tax-paying public. Now, it’s easier than ever to pay your taxes using only your mobile phone with the help of PayMaya,” said Orlando Vea, Founder and CEO of PayMaya.
Bringing back time, convenience, and even cash
Aside from bringing convenience and time-saving benefits to many tax-paying Filipinos, the partnership also enables them to earn a cashback when they pay their taxes with PayMaya–the most rewarding mobile wallet in the Philippines today.
