PHU THO (VNS) — Phu Tho was recently praised for being the first province in the country to use software to manage payments of land tax and other fees and related processes.
The management software project became operational in 2008 in all 13 districts and cities of the province. This year the project helped the province to win the prestigious Hung Vuong Award, which honours outstanding scientific and technological products and projects.
Le Van Phuc, deputy head of the taxation department of the province, said ever since the project became operational, it has helped local inhabitants and organisations to pay their taxes and also local authorities to manage the tax and fee payment services better. The software has helped them to save a lot of time and to improve and simplify administrative procedures.
Following this success, the country's general department of taxation has proposed to implement this project nationwide.
Doan Xuan My, a local resident of Tien Cat Ward in Viet Tri City, said it used to take him 30 minutes to pay taxes and other fees earlier. Now, thanks to the new system, it takes him just five to 10 minutes.
Phu Tho Province's taxation department is so far the first unit in the country to use this software, and the only unit that prints tax receipts with it. — VNS
