The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) has filed tax evasion charges against four corporations and a retailer of goods based in Occidental Mindoro for alleged non-payment of income and business taxes amounting to more than P42 million.
Revenue Region 9-A Director Gerry Dumayas identified the respondents in separate criminal complaints filed before the Department of Justice as Mindoro Occidental Resources, High Frequency Circuit Technology, Wooin Industries Philippines, and Mindoro Occidental Resources. The lone individual trader accused of the same offense was Heber Amatario Calumpiano.
Key officers of the corporations, mostly president and treasurer were also included in the charge sheets.
Dumayas said he recommended the filing of the criminal cases after the accused ignored strings of assessment and collection notices sent to them
The liabilities were mostly income, value-added, and withholding taxes covering 2018 and prior years.
