The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) expects revenues from Philippine offshore gaming operators (POGOs) to be reduced by almost half this year, a top official told lawmakers on Thursday.

During a Senate hearing, BIR Deputy Commissioner Arnel Guballa said the bureau projected this amount at P3.92 billion, almost half of the P7.17 billion collected from POGOs in 2020.
