BIR hails CTA’s decision on P40M income tax collection from Napoles daughter 0 SHARES Share it! Share TweetBy Jun RamirezThe Bureau of Internal Revenue welcomed on Friday the decision of the Court of Tax Appeals (CTA) giving it the go-signal to collect some P40 million in deficiency income tax from the daughter of suspected “pork barrel” scam mastermind. “The court’s ruling removes all obstacle to collect back taxes from Ms. Napoles,” said a BIR litigation lawyer who declined to be named. The civil case is separate from the P18-million tax evasion complaint filed against her by the BIR which was dismissed last year by the tax court for insufficiency of evidence. Both cases arose from the massive acquisition of properties by Ms. Napoles here and in the United States, including a condominium unit at the luxurious Ritz Carlton in Los Angeles, California.
