Patung-patong na reklamo ang kinahaharap ngayon ng aktor na si Richard Gutierrez kaugnay ng naunang tax evasion case na isinampa laban sa kanya ng Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR).
Ang panibagong reklamong kinakaharap ng aktor ay may kinalaman sa mga diumano'y pekeng dokumento na isinumite niya para sa kanyang tax evasion case.
Ngayong araw, August 17, isinampa ni BIR Assistant Commissioner James Roldan sa Department of Justice (DOJ) ang reklamo laban sa La Luna Sangre actor dahil sa pamemeke diumano nito ng kanyang Annual Income Tax Returns at Value Added Tax documents.
Ayon sa inilabas na pahayag ng ahensiya ng gobyerno: “The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) today filed a criminal complaint with the Department of Justice against RICHARD GUTIERREZ for one (1) count of knowingly using/submitting fake or falsified Annual Income Tax return for taxable year 2012.
“Six (6) counts of knowingly using/submitting fake or falsified Quarterly Value Added Tax Returns for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th quarter of taxable year 2012 on two occasions, in violation of Article 172 of the Revised Penal Code in relation to Article 171 of the same code.”
Maliban dito, ang iba pang kinakaharap na reklamo ni Richard ay: “Two (2) counts knowingly using/submitting perjured affidavits during the preliminary investigation of his defense [in] tax evasion case, in violation of Article 183 of the Revised Penal Code.
“A criminal complaint against respondent GUTIERREZ for four (4) counts of attempting to make it appear that he or another has filed his Annual Income Tax Return for taxable year 2012 and his Quarterly Value Added Tax Returns for 2nd, 3rd, and 4th quarter of taxable year 2012, in violation of Section 255 of the National Internal Revenue Code (NIRC) of 1997, as amended.”
Noong Abril ay nagsampa ang BIR ng P38.57-million tax evasion case laban kay Richard.
