SBN-1316: Exempting the BIR from the Coverage of RA 6758

An Act Exempting the Bureau of Internal Revenue from the Coverage of Republic Ace No. 6758, otherwise known as the Compensation and Position Classification Act of 1989, As Amended, and for Other Purposes.

  • This bill seeks to exempt the BIR from the coverage of Republic Act No. 6758, otherwise known as the “Compensation and Position Classification Act of 1989” or more popularly known as the Salary Standardization Law.
  • With its passage, it is expected that the salaries of BIR employees and officials will be at par with industry standards and it is hoped that the BIR will be able to fill the glaring gap in its workforce and attract the best and the brightest in the field of taxation.
  • With a competitive compensation package, incidences of corruption at the BIR will be minimized if not eradicated and that the public can expect a BIR that can further improve its collection performance, and overall, a more efficient tax administration.
