BIR files tax evasion case vs 2 traders

By: Jun Ramirez

The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) filed yesterday separate tax evasion charges against two Metro Manila businessmen for alleged non-payment of deficiency taxes totaling to some P40 million.

In complaints submitted to the Department of Justice, Makati Revenue Regional Director Glen Geraldino named the accused as Rolly Almuete, proprietor of trucking service Markleen Trading of Goodwill 2, BF, Parañaque City and Leon Son, owner of LYS Property Management of Quirino Avenue, Tambo, Parañaque.

Son who is engaged in real estate business was slapped the higher deficiency income and value-added tax assessment of P29.5 million for taxable year 2010.

On the other hand, Almuete was accused of non-payment of income and VAT taxes amounting to P10.2 million for the year 2007.

Geraldino said the said respondents were officially informed of their tax liabilities via letter notices, letters of authority and assessment notices.

However, they allegedly ignored them making the assessments unpaid.
