The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) issued various revenue regulations and revenue memorandum circulars, implementing and clarifying various issues about the eBIRForms. They even required all “covered” taxpayers to register and start filing online. That’s not surprising.
What’s surprising is, when you registered, you entered personal information that you expect BIR to protect. Privacy is one of the main concerns in an online world, and by providing your personal information to them, you expect them to protect your privacy and will not use your personal information for other purposes without your consent.
