Can Tho (VNA) – As many as 98 percent of businesses in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho make online tax declarations and use the e-tax payment system, Vo Kim Hoang, head of the provincial Tax Department reported on July 1.

In 2015, nearly 1,900 local enterprises registered to contact the department through email, while 71 percent of businesses showed their pleasure with the department’s services, said Hoang.

This has contributed to the administrative reform of the tax sector and the modernisation of its operation, he added.

Over the past time, the department has organised a number of dialogues with tax payers to solve obstacles facing them during the payment.

According to the department, in the first five months of this year, it collected over 3.12 trillion VND (140.4 million USD) of taxes, with Binh Thuy district leading the work by gathering 62.94 percent of the yearly estimate, a rise of 37.84 percent over the same period last year.

On July 1, the department also honoured 548 good tax payers.-VNA
