Welcome to the IRC

The IRC is responsible for the collection of most of PNG's Tax Revenue. We will make it easier for the tax paying community to comply by offering improved services and education products, including encouraging greater reliance on our website.

Our headquarters is located at the Revenue Haus, Bogan Gapo Building, in Downtown, Port Moresby with provincial offices located in all the main centres around the country.

The IRC is managed by Ms. Betty Palaso who is the Commissioner General of the IRC. She is supported by Dr. Alois Daton who serves as Commissioner Taxation and Ms. Pauline Bre who serves as Commissioner Services.

The Commissioner Taxation oversees the Tax Wing, which is made up of Collect Taxes, Assess & Prioritise, Manage Debt, Policy? Advice and Tax Audits. The Commissioner Services oversees the Services Wing which is made up of Corporate Services, the Office of the Commissioners, Internal Audits & Integrity, Information Communication and Technology and Legal Services.

We feel that having a reputation in the community for being honest, fair and professional is just as important as bringing in the expected tax revenue.
