CALOOCAN TAXPAYER faces tax evasion case


The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) filed a tax evasion case before the justice department against Pepito Gutierrez Baes of Caloocan City for allegedly evading payment of P4.92 million in taxes for 2010. The BIR alleged that Baes had been issued notices of the tax liabilities, however, he failed to file any protest or to submit additional documents to refute the assessments, thus making them “final, executory, and demandable.” The bureau even garnished P296,195.66 from Baes’ bank account. Thereafter, the trader even asked for a compromise deal by asking that he be allowed to pay 10 percent of his basic assessed income and value added taxes with a promise to pay his deficiency expanded withholding tax in full. Unfortunately, after depositing his third installment, Baes failed to pay the remaining balance of P4.92 million, according to the BIR which asked the DOJ to conduct the necessary preliminary investigation and file the charges in court.
