What is #HACKATAXPH?

HACK-A-TAX is a joint project of the BIR and USAID and organized by DevCon Philippines (partner NGO). It is not just a hackathon but also an innovation challenge which aims to bring talented and skilled IT professionals, start-ups, and students across the country to help develop innovative tech solutions for the BIR.

Who can join?

Safe and reliable

Why join the challenge?

You as an individual developer, or IT students from reputable colleges and universities can develop frontend applications for BIR’s e-services and digital filing and payment that will improve experience of taxpayers in availing frontline services and filing and payment of taxes. The applications that will be developed will be owned, marketed, operated and maintained by the participants.
