Zoren Legaspi

MANILA, Philippines—The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) on Thursday filed a P4.45 million tax evasion case against actor Zoren Legaspi who allegedly “substantially undeclared his income tax returns.”

In a complaint filed with the Department of Justice (DOJ), the BIR said Legaspi violated  sections 254 and 255 of the National Internal Revenue Code for willful attempt to evade or defeat tax and deliberate failure to supply correct and accurate information in his income tax returns for 2010 and 2012.

Investigation by the BIR showed that Legaspi received a total income ofP9.64 million in 2010, and P6.49 million in 2012.

A comparison of the documents and information, however, showed that Legaspi declared P6.79 million as gross income in his tax returns filed with the BIR in 2010, and P1.82 million in 2012. Compared with the income payments he received as per alpha lists of withholding agents provided by the BIR’s Information Systems and Development Operations Service (ISDOS) showed Legaspi “willfully and substantially” underdeclared his correct taxable income by P2.85 million in 2010, and P4.67 million in 2012.

His tax liability for 2010 and 2012 is P4.45 million, inclusive of surcharges and interest.
