The 1st BIR Tax Innovation Challenge, co-organized by DEVCON together with The Bureau of Internal Revenue (Philippines), with the support from USAID/Philippines E-PESO and several sponsors.


Hack a Tax is an innovative model co-created by the government and the private sector to foster digital transformation in government services and transactions. The first Hack a Tax was launched in October 2019 and is being implemented as a joint project of the BIR and United States Agency for International Development (USAID). Hack a Tax aims to provide simple, streamlined, and serviceable digital tax services especially for the micro and small enterprises that represent 90% of business taxpayers. With the mobile apps solutions developed through Hack a Tax, taxpayers will no longer have to visit the internal revenue office and fill out long, complex tax forms or line up at authorized agent banks for over-the-counter transactions. Among all the one-hundred seventy- three (173) participants, twenty semi-finalists went through an intensive series of boot camps with mentors, while twelve of them made it to the final judging. Apart from owning, operating, maintaining, and monetizing their apps, the Top Three winners of the competition also received cash prize.

DEVCON Kids is a volunteer organization of technology, teaching, and learning enthusiasts. We engage the youth in human-centered computer coding learning experiences, to prepare them for a future that is highly dependent on computers and critical thinking.
