On August 1, 1964, the Philippine Bureau of Internal Revenue held a picnic in Taytay, Rizal Province, attended by more than 2,000 persons, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of its founding. The Philippine Bureau of Internal Revenue was organized on August 1, 1904, some six years after the Philippines came under the control of the United States. Its present complement of approximately 6,000 employees administers a variety of National Government taxes and can claim credit for providing roughly sixty per cent of total National Government revenues.
