BIR to contest dismissal of tax evasion charge vs Judy Ann Santos

January 16, 2013 8:01pm
The Bureau of Internal Revenue said Wednesday that it will file a petition for certiorari regarding the Court of Tax Appeals' decision to clear actress Judy Ann Santos of tax evasion.

The CTA's dismissal of the criminal aspect of the case is a reversal of its own “willful blindness” doctrine, the BIR said in its statement.

“It has always been the BIR’s position that the tax code provides for a presumption of fraud in cases of underdeclaration of 30 percent. Ms. Santos' underdeclaration exceeds 100 percent and the defense never submitted any evidence to disprove such presumption,” the BIR's statement reads.

Santos was still ordered by the appellate court to pay P3.418 million in civil liability, representing her income tax deficiency for 2012 plus 20 percent delinquency interest computed from 2008 until fully paid.

The BIR filed the P2.714-million tax evasion case against Santos for allegedly underdeclaring her income from movies, TV shows and product endorsements. Santos declared an income of P8.033 million, solely from her ABS-CBN talent fees
