If no one is untouchable as she claims, then BIR Commissioner Kim Henares should go after the BILLIONAIRES, especially the Chinese group or the taipans to prove it.
It’s PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE that SM tycoon Henry Sy, the Ayalas, Lucio Tan, the oil companies and the rest of the billionaires earn MILLIONS DAILY.
Henares had better start revealing publicly the TAXES paid by the billionaires for PUBLIC SCRUTINY. She must CATEGORICALLY declare if the correct amount had been paid and prove it.
If not, she had better be ready with AIR-TIGHT steps she is taking to collect from the billionaires and how long will take her to do so.
Since Henares took over the BIR, we have yet to hear OF EVEN ONE case filed against, or even a DETAILED breakdown of the taxes paid by, the billionaires as against their known multi-billion assets.
Taxes paid by some celebrities like Manny Pacquiao are revealed to media. But those paid by the billionaires, NEVER. The big question, WHY?
So except for the BIR’s word, we have NO ASSURANCE that the billionaires are not cheating on their tax payments. We will never know whether or not the billionaires are paying only five or 10 percent of their total liabilities AND GETTING AWAY WITH IT.
Unless we get the chance to prove it ourselves.
As the Aquino Administration often says, if there is nothing to hide, then there should be no problem in revealing anything.
Put your money where your mouth is, Ms. Henares.
Two of our friends on “Don’t single out Willing Willie”:
ESPERLITA GARCIA of Gonzaga, Cagayan
Your judgment is correct, Boyet. Why do critics, and even Madam Dinky (Soliman, DSWD secretary), single out “Willing Willie?” I do not see any abusive act by Willie. Wiling-wili lang siya sa self confidence na ipinakita ng bata. To curtail the rights of children like Janjan in “Willing Willie” and other related shows is unfair.
Bakit si Willie lang ang napansin ng MTRCB?
NOEMI MONTENEGRO on “If Lacson wants to fully redeem his credibility” :
Sen. Lacson has a lot of explaining to do regarding his alleged involvement in the Dacer-Corbito murder case to clear his name if he really doesn't have a hand in it. The case has been left unsolved for several years already and the families of the deceased have been left in limbo.
Five of our friends on “Meralco power rate hike must be investigated!” :
MERIT SALUD of Bloomfied, New Jersey, USA
Meralco is controlled by a Cojuangco. The establsihment of a nuke plant is being championed by a Cojuangco. The president is a Cojuangco. Other than Pnoy, none of them could be said to have shown selfless love for country.
EFREN CORDERO PIMENTEL of Silang, Cavite
I agree with you. It would not be surprising if there is also a Mafia sucking the bloodlines of the utilities sector. Let’s unveil the truth through intense investigation. Enough of the cartel in the utilities sector.
CHRISTIAN LITIATCO of Manila
Apart from that, Congress must REPEAL RA 9136 or the EPIRA law.
Yes. Calling all Filipino citizens…
VENCEREMUS PATRIA of Baguio City
Not only investigated. Kailangan nang alisin ang sistemang monopolyado! 30
