'Dyesebel' visits BIR | Anne Curtis to face charge for tax evasion?

“Dyesebel” star Anne Curtis was swarmed and cheered by employees of Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) in Quezon City when she appeared unannounced at the main office the other day to ask about her supposed multi-million-peso tax liabilities.

BIR Commissioner Kim Henares confirmed that the actress-host went to her officer earlier this week, but said she was unable to meet with the "Dyesebel" star because she was out of the office.
"I was informed she went to BIR but I was not there. First, she did not have any appointment with me. Second, I have appointments outside of the bureau."
However, no explanation was given by the BIR information office if why Curtis went to the BIR.
"Wala akong pwedeng sabihin... Dapat tanungin niyo na lang si Anne Curtis bakit siya pumunta sa opisina ko. Ako, hindi ako pwede magsalita.
"Secondly, 'pag nag-issue kami ng letter of authority ibig sabihin lang nun hindi mo na ho pwedeng amyendahan ang mga return mo o kaya kung hindi kayo nakapag-file, hindi na pwede kayo mag-file so kung ano ang resulta nun is another conclusion."
BIR sources said she had a closed door meeting with legal and enforcement officials to inquire about the letter of authority (LA) issued against her. 

Henares has repeatedly said that delinquent tax payers issued an LOA may no longer amend their income tax returns (ITRs) subject of the LOA and would already face possible civil and/or criminal cases for evasion of taxes.
BIR records showed that Curtis was number 50 in the list of top individual taxpayers for 2012, paying a total of P19.1 million in income tax.
The BIR explained that Curtis’ payment covered purely income for  self  employment and practice of profession using BIR income tax form number 1701.
Aside from her show business, Curtis is also generating huge income as a popular endorser of a wide range of consumer products.
Yes, you can buy all things in this world. But nothing is free in this country. Almost all transactions require tax payments.
