"The Bureau of Internal Revenue had profoundly expressed its apologies towards Ms. Boroc for the inconvenience it has brought her and will be more sensitive to the rights of PWDs," the BIR said in a statement. The taxman clarified that the dress code notice was intended for the BIR employees of the said district office, and not the public. "On the other hand, Revenue District Officer Vicente J. Tady of BIR Calbayog asserted that Ms. Boroc was not denied entry, but her companion who was wearing shorts and slippers," the BIR said. Nevertheless, the BIR said the district officer has already apologized to Boroc through the TV program of broadcaster Raffy Tulfo last Friday. The BIR said that the security guard involved in the said incident was already relieved and the notice on the dress code was already taken down. The district officer in Calbayog City has also talked with Chairman Ceasar Delos Santos of the Office on PWD Affairs on August 7 to explain what truly transpired during the said incident and apologized for whatever misunderstanding that happened between the security guard and Boroc, the BIR said. "Further, grievances and allegations coursed through the different complaint channels particular to this issue were already answered and clarified in a formal letter-reply addressed directly to the concerned complainant," it said. — MDM, GMA New
  2. BIR scenario today:😭😭We went to BIR calbayog to process my sister's request. I am with the SPA from my sister. And we were not allowed to go insideIn the guard house:Guard: "Bawal po naka short" Xander: "ikaw nalang pumasok intayin kita sa labas" Guard: "Bawal po naka short base sa bagong memorandum namin mam" (while looking at me) Me: "Kuya, kahit ako po?" Guard: "yes po bawal po, kahit naka sapatos ka po" (with a rude tone) dapat po naka long pants po kayo. Me: kuya kahit PWD na di po makakapag long pants? guard: "yes po dahil po sa bagong MDR" Hay naku napapaisip naang ako. Kita naman po na wala akong paa, at shorts lang ang pwede sakin dahil nga PWD at masama ang panahon. Pano kaya ako makapag long pants? What can they not understand???
