“The performance of the Bureau of Internal Revenue was affected by the low income tax payments received for the 2nd quarter of taxable year 2014 which can be attributed to lower corporate income of large corporations, which could also be brought about by the port congestion experienced during the past months,” BIR Commissioner Kim Henares said.
