The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR)–Revenue District Office (RDO) No. 11 recently closed two specialty restaurants in Kalibo town, the gateway to the world famous Boracay Island, for under declaring their sales to cut down on tax payments. In an interview, RDO No. 11 regional director lawyer Romulo Aguila Jr. said the padlocked eateries were the Korean Massitada and Bahay Kubo Flavors of Asia located at Kalibo International Airport (KIA). He said these restaurants will not be allowed to reopen until the owners settle their tax debts. Aguila said that Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima has a standing order against restaurant owners nationwide who under declare their sales or do not register their businesses to reduce their tax payments.
