Filipino-Chinese vow to toe line on taxes

A day after being chided by a “shocked” President Benigno Aquino III about the incredibly low taxes—or sometimes none at all—that affluent Filipino-Chinese businessmen were paying, the leaders of the community said they would toe the line and vowed to get their members to pay the right amount in taxes.

As this developed, the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) said the businessmen only had until April 15 to pay the correct amount in taxes, after which the authorities would declare “open season” on tax delinquents.

“In light of the good governance program led by our President, the federation will ask the entire Chinese community to be very diligent in paying their tax obligations,” said businessman Francis Chua, relaying a message to the INQUIRER from Federation of Filipino-Chinese Chambers of Commerce and Industry Inc. (FFCCCII) president Tan Chin.

President Aquino’s admonition to tax-evading Filipino-Chinese businessmen was made on Friday evening at the annual meeting of the FFCCCII in Pasay City, eliciting strained laughter, awkward reactions and knowing glances from the group’s members who were present, according to people at the event.

Chua, himself a past president of the FFCCCII, said the group—the umbrella organization of all Chinese-Filipino business associations nationwide—had been conducting regular tax seminars for its members to improve their tax compliance.

“We fully support our President in this tax campaign,” Chua said, while adding that many FFCCCII members were nonstock, nonprofit organizations that, by the nature of their activities, were usually engaged in activities that required little or no tax payments.

In his speech, President Aquino expressed shock upon learning earlier from the BIR that only 105 of the FFCCCII’s 207 member firms and organizations had tax identification numbers (TINs).

Despite 6.6 growth

“I wonder what happened to the others,” the President said. “Of these 105 firms, only 54 filed tax returns. To make matters worse, 38 firms and organizations actually filed returns with zero tax due. That means that only 16 of the 207—or only around eight percent—of your member organizations paid taxes. The 6.6 [percent economic] growth rate did not seem to affect your members.”

The President was alluding to the unprecedented growth rate achieved by the country last year.

“Of the FFCCCII’s 552 individual members, only 424 of you have TINs. Of that number, only 185 filed income tax returns, Aquino noted.

File taxes before deadline

“Of those that filed tax returns, only 14 filed returns with zero tax due,” he said. “What this means is 354 out of 552 members—or 64 percent of you—did not pay taxes for the same reasons: No TIN, no tax due or nothing filed at all.”

“In fact, of those who filed and paid income tax, many paid less than P100,000,” an incredulous Aquino said. “There were some who paid less than P1,000 in taxes,” he added.

Interviewed by the INQUIRER, BIR Commissioner Kim Jacinto-Henares said she was urging members of the business community to file the proper tax returns before the deadline next month.

“The President’s speech was an appeal to them,” Henares said. “The message basically was: We recognize that you’ve been helping the country and contributing to charitable work, but can you please pay the right taxes by April 15?”

Henares said the tax bureau was indeed looking into possible cases of tax evasion among local businessmen, but stressed that there was “no witch hunt” among specific ethnic groups.

She declined to reveal the identities of the persons or businesses being investigated or the amount in taxes they owed, saying the information was confidential.

Not a racial thing

“This is not a racial thing,” she said. “We are not targeting the Chinese-Filipino community. You’re a citizen of this country, you must pay the right amount of tax.”

The BIR chief explained that her agency was looking at data collected from all over the country in trying to detect patterns of potential tax evasion concentrated in specific groups and areas.

“We’re not targeting or threatening them. This is not because they’re the FFCCCI,” she said. “We’re looking at our database and this is what we see.”

The revenue chief also said that businessmen who underdeclared their tax liabilities in previous years must rush to file amended tax declarations before they are found out by the BIR’s examiners.

“About the past years’ liabilities, while we’re not investigating them, they can go back and amend their tax declarations,” Henares said. “They should report the right thing now. Then they can still go back to previous years to correct their returns.”

“Otherwise, they are taking a big risk. It will be the point of no return,” she warned. “Unahan na lang tayo niyan (Let’s see who gets to the other first).”

    Really? We all know that the biggest tax evaders and smugglers are the Tsinoys. This Francis Chua should shut up. He was a GMA dog.

      Francis Chua is the owner of eng bee tin, the maker of ube hopia and everything ube. Even his fire truck is ube. This ube chinga-chonga is making so much money by paying Filipino workers below minimum wage and forgets to pay his taxes.

        He did not forget to pay taxes. He did not pay. He evaded. For nine years, he was untouchable under GMA being the conduit between her and the Filipino-Chinese Chamber of Commerce. Dapat i-bee-tin ang tsekwang iyan.

        How do I say this without sounding like a
        racist or a bigot. But my mom always told me that the Chinese in the
        Philippines institutionalized corruption or rather made it the norm. Now
        if you think about it – if 60-70% of major businesses and
        industries are Chinese owned, then they should be the largest tax
        payers in the country. When you read the business papers, there would be
        outstanding earnings reports with these companies and look at the
        Filipinos in the Forbes list. Mostly of Chinese descent. Now which among
        them are the highest tax payers? I don’t think you’d see their names.
        Good luck running after these. Before I forget….how about our
        politicians.

      • Noel

        Indeed, the Chinese in the Phl are the most powerful and influential group. A case in point: Even a cabinet secretary was fired for pursuing tax evasion cases against a tycoon. I’m referring to former DOJ Sec. Cuevas who was unceremoniously sacked by then President Erap for not heeding his instruction to take it easy on Lucio Tan.

        Your mom is stupid and racially biased, but not willing to admit it to her child. Obviously she passed down that stupidity to you. Look at the Chinese-majority cities in Asia: Beijing, Shanghai, Singapore, Hong Kong, Chiang Mai, Taipei, Macau. All well-managed, efficient, corruption-free. Then look at the Malay-majority cities of SE Asia: Manila, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur where ethnic Chinese businessmen thrive despite the heavy shadow of corruption.

        Conclusion? Chinese businessmen will do what is necessary to survive. They go to apply for permits, they have to pay under the table for their papers to be processed normally. Tax returns? Gotta give some extra for the BIR inspector, or they will get all sorts of arbitrary extra charges. If you’ve dealt with the BIR, Customs or other gov’t agencies, you know how the game runs. You pay or you don’t play.

        So who’s asking for these bribes and extras in the first place? Malay Filipinos—yes, the kayumangging lahi you’re so proud of. Your greedy, scheming kind who sees intsiks as milking cows, as people who are fair game for extortion, not to mention kidnapping and robbery. It’s the Malay Filipinos who institutionalized corruption in their own country, ever since the Spaniards left. Nothing has changed, and nothing will. Drive away all Chinese, and the Filipino “cancer” that JP Rizal referred to will still remain, finding new victims to target.

        PH taxes is a form of extortion. What government services do the Chinese benefit from by paying taxes? Do they use public hospitals or schools? Aren’t roads supposed to be paid for by gas, toll and LTO fees? Aren’t airports paid for by airport fees? Just shut down the PH government and let the NPA take over. Every man for himself. Just like the olden times. It’s more fun to apply as a refugee in Hong Kong and relinquish stupid Filipino citizenship.

        PNoy and Abu Sayaf are just the same. They both demand “ransom money” for “food and lodging.” The PNP held several Chinese hostages in 2010 and shot them because they didn’t pay the ransom money. Taxes just like VAT are simply added to the price of any consumer good, so the consumers always end up paying for it. Anyone who pays taxes (and everybody does through VAT) simply pays the PNP to kidnap, rape and murder them later. They pay taxes so that the AFP can buy more toys from Uncle Sam and employ an army of thieves.

        PNoy never even apologized for killing those Chinese hostages in 2010. Aquino’s Liberal Pary is even holding up in Imus Cavite through his Maliksi monkeys and supporting federation of crooked mayors and cops who want to continue their carjacking, carnapping, extortion and armed robbery businesses in Metro Manila through their hideouts in Cavite. That’s where your taxes go. To the extortionist PH government which is no different from Abu Sayaf, which just received millions again in ransom money.

        Teka, mukha atang napakagulo ng pagiisip mo … walang tinutungohan. Simple lang naman … ang isang katungkulan ng mamamayan ay magbayad ng WASTONG buwis. Ang katungkulan naman ng gobyerno ay ang pagamit ng buwis sa tamang pamamaraan. Ang mga hindi nagbabayad ng buwis (ke tsinoy man sya) ay mali at dapat usigin. Ang pangungurakot sa buwis na binayad ng taong bayan ay dapat ding sugpuin sa pamamagitan ng korte. Ang mga nangungurakut ay dapat usigin at palitan.

        Ang mga taong nagsasabing hindi sila magbabayad ng buwis dahil kinukurakot lang ay halatang nagpapalusot! Gumagawa na lang ng kung ano-anong dahilan maiwasan lang magbayad.

        The Vietnamese are communists just like China. They are also not Malays. That’s why they are doing well. The malls in the Philippines are all built by the Chinese who waste their money paying taxes even if they never use any government services. Even the AFP and PNP kidnap them. There’s really no reason why they should pay, but people like Henry Sy still pay billions of pesos.

        PH taxes is a form of extortion. What government services do the Chinese benefit from by paying taxes? Do they use public hospitals or schools?

        But the Chinese in the Philippines make money from non-Chinese, Fiipinos that is! They can have more than one child as opposed to living in China. And so much more for reasons for living in the Philippines that the Chinese take for granted! If they don’t like it, just leave the Philippines. Corruption would drastically go down! White slavery, smuggling, and counterfeit of currency and goods will drastically be reduced.

      • Cardinal Sin

        The Chinese can do that in any other country. The Chinese lived in the Philippines with Aetas and Mangyans before the Malays from Indonesia and Borneo invaded it.

        Filipino Malays should just go back to Indonesia and Borneo where they belong. Evil Malays murdered Aetas, and the Chinese witnessed it and recorded it in their history books.

        I would love myself to apply as a refugee in Hong Kong if it were possible. But the Philippines is not in chaos yet. The NPA, Abu Sayaf, etc. has to do more for war to exist so that anyone who wants to relinquish their citizenship for other countries as a refugee can easily do it.

        Does anyone really want to be Filipino and have Filipino citizenship? But the Chinese are sticking around until the Malays go back to Indonesia and turn over the Philippines back to the Aetas. The Chinese will not be intimidated by Filipino bullies or their extortionist government. If you want war, you will get it! The Chinese will kick you back to Indonesia where you belong!

        Go back Malays were you belong! Kiram and his followers are already going back. The rest of the Malays should do the same. NPAs, why are you so lazy? How can Filipinos apply for refugee status in other countries if you don’t take action and create war? Filipinos, don’t go to any PH mall anymore. Don’t eat in Jollibee! It’s Chinese-Filipino. Don’t shop in Greenbelt. Those “European” stalls from Store Specialist are Chinese-owned! Don’t buy cellphones, computers,refs, TVs or any consumer goods! They are Chinese!

      Bumiputra policy in the Philippines will fail. It failed in Zimbabwe, and it failed in Malaysia, as former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad himself admitted recently. Mahathir was the father of the “bumi first” policy. All it succeeded at doing was creating a class of super-rich Malays who enriched themselves by allowing themselves to be used as legal frontmen by Chinese Malaysians and other foreigners who wanted to do business in Malaysia, and needed a way to get around the ownership restrictions on businesses. It cushioned Malays from global competition, and as a result Malaysia still could not move away from being a resource-extraction economy, mainly oil and rubber. The wealth did not trickle down, and Malaysia still couldn’t produce any technological innovations during the same timeframe that Taiwan, Thailand, S.Korea and China were turning themselves into industrial powerhouses.

      A bumi first policy will be no different in the Philippines, because Malay Filipinos are a very lazy, laid-back, uninspired ethnic group. Sure, there are exceptions to the rule, but by and large, look at the entire workforce and measure it against the Philippines’ Asian neighbors in terms of productivity. Without the likes of Intel, Toyota, Huawei, Lenovo, Nissan, and other foreign assembly plants here, the Philippines would largely be exporting bananas and japayukis only. Well, there’s the domestic helpers too.

      Kick out the chinks, sure. You think that’ll solve the Philippines’ economic woes? Corruption was not institutionalized by the Chinese, they only learned the ropes from officials because bribery and other corrupt practices were necessary to do business, ever since the Spaniards left. And who asks for these bribes? Filipino officials, of course. Go to the BIR, Bureau of Customs, DPWH, or even just the DOH for a medical reimbursement. What do people there ask you? Bribes. Under the table. For the boys. Pangmeryenda. And other colorful names for corrupt money. You pay or you don’t play, that’s the way it goes EVERYWHERE in the Philippines.

      Look at the most prosperous Asian cities with Chinese majority population: Beijing, Shanghai, Singapore, Hong Kong, Macau, Chiang Mai, Taipei. All of them super efficient, corruption-free and prosperous. Then look at Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Cebu, Bandung, Hanoi—Asian cities with sizeable Chinese populations doing business despite the heavy corruption. Conclusion? Chinese businessmen will do what is necessary to survive. Business permits, tax returns, construction permits, all of these are fair game for Filipino corruption. Again, if you wanna get something done, you pay. And pay the hooligans they do, to keep things running smoothly.

      I don’t know the source of your racism vs Jews, but I guess you failed to read the real reasons why Hitler targeted them (hint: it wasn’t because of their economic preponderance or, according to you— “greed”). It’s very easy for someone with the typical Flip crab mentality to despise an ethnic group for their success (inggit much?). Kick out all the chinks, and the cancer of corruption that JP Rizal referred to will still be there, this time looking for new targets to squeeze dry. It’s the kayumanggi kind that’s greedy, but I’m sure you’re too proud of your brown-skinned kind to honestly admit it. The Chinese didn’t invent corruption, you Filipinos did. The chinks are just playing along.

    The government should also go after BIR examiners. Surely tax collection will be dramatically high. It is known in the business community that examiners regularly extort money as high as 10 times that of the taxes they demanded be paid. No wonder examiners are rich and can afford to buy (if not extorted) cars and send their children to exclusive schools.

    Make the Chinese identify these shenanigans …..a move that is beneficial to all law-abiding ones, as the proceeds of all taxes will go to government projects, esp infrastructures, the kind that made US great, that will eventually redound to the furtherance of their businesses, considering that 80% or more of the country’s industries are controlled by Fil-Chi.

  • tarikan

    I’m flabbergasted that it took no lees than the president of the Philippines to admonish these tax cheats (these usual suspects are Chinese). Why, the Philippines is still in the middle ages regarding taxation? In more advanced countries (ok, ok, why compare PH is well below par), their internal revenue officers go for the tax cheats night and day no let up. Tax cheats have nowhere to hide and if caught they pay and then are jailed. Remember the owners of the Empire State bldg. in New York city? Both husband & wife went to jail for being tax cheats. Also remember Filipino taipan Lucio Tan owing BIR some P26B (BILLION) in cigarette taxes? Well, he DID NOT go to jail. No wonder tax cheats love the Philippines.

  • Chiccoloco4U

    If the government is really sincere about collecting taxes, why don’t they take a look also at many Korean businesses especially online tutorial companies since many of these are operating illegally, collecting taxes, Philhealth, SSS, PAG-IBIG fees but sometimes not really remitting them to the respective agencies or sometimes delayed by 3 months or so, and wherein the Human Resources Manager is a Korean national and most likely the other Korean officers are working without proper working permits. They often use English names so that it would be difficult for anyone to trace if they have the necessary working permits.

    These Korean companies have made big connections to many local governments, agencies like DOLE and BIR. It is also shameful that our lawyers are helping them get away from their full obligations to our government and their employees.

    These Chineses have been cheating the native Filipinos for quite sometimes now. If this government is really serious in going after these people it should,charge them all the necessary penalties and interests of the amount they cheated . This government must also go after their accomplishes in the BIR and the Bureau of Customs. If only the government can collect the right taxes plus interests from these people the amount would be more than enough to pay off all the debts of the Phuilippines.

    Taxes are fraud in the first place. Government don’t need our money to run, they already have the central bank to print money for them. This whole system is designed to screw ordinary human beings all over the world.

    We should go beyond Chinese, Filipinos, Jews, Indians, Americans etc. There is no gold standard to measure the real wealth. Central Banks just prints money and ask interest rate on it. This is the biggest fraud on earth.

    Media is not addressing the real issue of BSP printing money and asking interest rate on that money, which is the root cause of poverty in Philippines and likewise rest of the world.

    If government wants to earn money, it should work its a** off and work like every else, than collecting taxes, which goes to nothing but to luxury of politicians.

    PNoy and Abu Sayaf are just the same. They both demand “ransom money” for “food and lodging.” The PNP held several Chinese hostages in 2010 and shot them because they didn’t pay the ransom money. Taxes just like VAT are simply added to the price of any consumer good, so the consumers always end up paying for it. Anyone who pays taxes (and everybody does through VAT) simply pays the PNP to kidnap, rape and murder them later. They pay taxes so that the AFP can buy more toys from Uncle Sam and employ an army of thieves. PNoy never even apologized for killing those Chinese hostages in 2010. Aquino’s Liberal Pary is even holding up in Imus Cavite through his Maliksi monkeys and supporting federation of crooked mayors and cops who want to continue their carjacking, carnapping, extortion and armed robbery businesses in Metro Manila through their hideouts in Cavite. That’s where your taxes go. To the extortionist PH government which is no different from Abu Sayaf, which just received millions again in ransom money.

    Income tax payments of tsinoys won’t improve much as long as the corrupt BIR tax examiners will continue with their annual examination of choice tsinoys’ tax payments, who usually pay the government less and the examiners more.

    The BIR has not imprisoned any tax evaders unlike in the U.S. where the citizens fear the IRS more than any government agencies. An example is actor Wesley Snipes who celebrated his 50th birthday in prison for fraudulent tax payment and will be released this coming July after serving 3 years in prison.

    Nobody in this country is afraid of BIR due to the corruptibility of tax examiners. If Henares will prohibit any tax examination for 4 years, meaning all income tax payments for 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 will not be examined anymore – expect a big jump on tax collections from the business community because their budgets for tax examiners will instead go to the government.

Between a Filipino tribe in the remote areas of the country and a Chinese where land is in dispute, the Filipino courts, politicians, military, and police have always ganged up on the Filipino tribe in defense of the Chinese. Today, our government is already owned by the Chinese. This Chinese owned government have been conspiring with the Malaysian grabbers of Sabah, to gang up on the Filipinos of Sulu who had the courage to stand up against the Malaysians to reclaim Sabah for the Philippines.

    This is what happens when are disunited and paralyzed in defending our country against these united and organized foreign intruders who have now become our masters. We have lost our motivation for our nation except to just let it remain economically, politically, and militarily weak, corrupt and dependent on these foreigners no matter how much they abuse our people. We have been brain washed by our schools and mainstream media which have already been economically controlled by these foreigners to abandon the social dimension of our existence as being out of reality. We have been formed to embrace only those that economically benefit us, as individuals and not as a country, as the standard norm of behavior. We should now unite to defend ourselves against Chinese rule.

    As long as the VAT is compromised at Customs, tax evasion will not stop because the BIR won’t be able to trace the sales transactions of most imports. If VAT were collected at Customs, all subsequent sales transactions can be traced and all businesses will be sucked in the Philippine taxation system.

    Paki lifestyle check ang mga BIR employees. Mas grabe daw ngayon mag kotong ang mga ito kaysa sa panahon ng ibang presidente.

    to stop this cycle of not paying taxes, mas maganda pag e-entrap ang mga BIR employees. Instead na magbayad ng tamang taxes sa government, sa bulsa ng BIR employees napupunta!

    These people are earning billions, they use millions to bribe authorities, spend little for their employees…. and pay no taxes? They could be a major factor why our government is corrupt and the Phillipines poor. Now that Pres. Pinoy has outed them, it’s time for them to pay, not only the right taxes, but also for their crimes.
