MAASIN CITY, Southern Leyte, Sept 21 -- The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) Southern Leyte field office has filed tax evasion case against a lawyer and would file more cases against professionals, who are evading payment of income taxes this year.

The case of a lawyer based in Sogod, this province, has been elevated to the legal division at the BIR regional office, Assistant Revenue District Officer Carlos Tambal disclosed to PIA – So. Leyte in a phone interview.

According to Tambal, the lawyer has not been paying the annual income tax, non monthly filing of income tax, non issuance of receipts and does not even have registration with their office.

Tambal also said that their office is closely monitoring another professional, whose details were not disclosed, who is reportedly committing tax evasion despite earnings derived from professional practice.

He said that no less than their higher officials divulged that there are instances that the professional sector are the least to comply in the payment of income taxes. “Oftentimes minimum wage earners pay more income tax than their group,” said Tambal.

Meanwhile, Tambal reported that their office has been closely monitoring the compliance of the local government units to include the barangays in the implementation of withholding taxes for all their purchases, services, projects and salaries.

Tambal said that they have been receiving reports that taxes were not withheld in most of the transactions at the barangay level. However, he said that these allegations will have to be verified by their office.

Tambal added that since the barangays received their Internal Revenue Allotment (IRA), with or without transactions, the barangays need to file income tax returns to their office, otherwise, they will impose sanctions for non- compliance of tax laws.(PIA Southern Leyte/esg)
