• Henares files tax raps vs former LTO chief


    On her last day in office, Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) Commissioner Kim Jacinto-Henares filed her 492nd tax evasion complaint before the Department of Justice (DOJ).

    The respondent was former Land Transportation Office (LTO) chief Alberto Suansing, who was appointed by then-President Gloria Macapagal- Arroyo.

    Suansing, president of North Star Port Development Corp., a cargo-handling company, was charged by Henares along with his treasurer Rosauro Aguinaldo.

    The bureau alleged that North Star violated Section 255 in relation to Sections 253 and 256 of the National Internal Revenue Code of 1997.

    It said it has repeatedly sent notices to the company for its failure to pay P29.83 million in taxes.

    The notices were unanswered, according to the BIR.

    The bureau said the Justice department, after conducting preliminary investigation and finding probable cause, should indict Suansing and Aguinaldo before the tax courts and prosecute them for tax evasion.
