BIR Files Tax Evasion Complaints Against Six Corporate Firms & Two Delinquent Taxpayers


The head of the Bureau of Internal Revenue, Commissioner Caesar Dulay may not be as popular as Kim Henares for her constant media coverage during the Aquino administration, but Dulay proved to be a worthy head of BIR as the agency filed anew tax evasion cases against six corporate firms and two delinquent taxpayers for alleged failure to pay taxes amounting to P757 million.



BIR's accomplishment came out after the well-publicized achievement against the government's tax cases against Mighty Corporation and the country's flag-carrier, Philippine Airlines (PAL).

According to BIR the agency filed separate tax evasion complaints before the Department of Justice against six corporate firms namely Enviroking Corp., Enzio Ferrera Collections Intl., Filippi Nouvelle Inc., Ira General and Security Services Inc., Lifeware Technology Inc., and VTM Quilts Collection Inc., as they were charged for willful failure to pay taxes despite being informed of their liabilities.

BIR Assistant Commissioner James Roldan said investigation showed that notices were sent to six firms informing them of their tax liabilities multiple times, but were "ignored by the respondents, as the aforecited assessments remained unpaid."

Trading firm Enviroking Corporation is being sued for P642.75 million tax liabilities that goes back to 2009 while security firm Ira General is slapped with a tax complaint for alleged failure to pay taxes amounting to P44.07 million.

Aside from the six firms accused by BIR, the agency also sued two delinquent taxpayers, identified as Joanas Godoy Coronel and Rommel Lavarias, for willful failure to pay long overdue taxes amounting to P5.33 million and P4.62 million, respectively.

The cases filed by BIR against delinquent taxpayers has a total of 56 evasion cases under Run After Tax Evaders (RATE) program under the leadership of Commissioner Caesar R. Dulay, one of the trusted appointees of Pres. Rody Duterte
