In 2013, Pacquiao and his wife filed a petition for review questioning the BIR’s P2.2 billion assessment against them.

The case went up to the Supreme Court after the boxing champ urged the high court to stop the tax court from ordering them to post an “impossible” P3-billion bond or P4-billion surety bond to stop the BIR from collecting P2 billion worth of taxes.
