Henares is not harassing Pacquiao – Palace

Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte came to the defense of Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) commissioner Kim Henares on the impression of harassing boxing champion Manny Pacquiao to pay the right taxes months before his highly-anticipated fight with Floyd Mayweather Jr. on May 2 in Las Vegas.

”He is just being reminded,” Valte said Friday, February 27, at a press briefing in Malacañang when asked why the BIR seemed to nag Pacquiao about his tax obligation every time he has a fight.

Last Thursday, Henares reportedly told Pacquiao to correctly report to BIR the taxes he will be paying in the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and provide necessary supporting documents to avoid tax woes.

“It’s the same reminder that she has always issued to him before he has a fight,” added Valte.

Henares has drawn ire of Pacquiao’s fans asking her to give the Filipino boxing champ time to concentrate on his training before badgering him on his taxes.

Pacquiao has a P2.2-billion tax liability over his earnings in 2008 and 2009. The lawmaker paid P32 million to the BIR but Henares said it was just a “small chunk” of what he has to pay.

Amid word war between Henares and Pacquiao, the Supreme Court last August issued a temporary restraining order on BIR’s tax case against the pound for pound boxer.

Pacquiao’s fight against undefeated Mayweather is expected to break record as it has been estimated to generate over US$250 million revenues.
