Napoles’ daughter faces tax fraud raps

Like mother, like daughter?

Tax evasion charges were filed against Jeane Catherine Lim-Napoles on Thursday after her mother, Janet, was earlier accused of the same crime, according to the Bureau of Internal Revenue.

Jeane, who figured in controversies in the US like her mother in the Philippines, is facing a complaint for willful attempt to evade tax and for her deliberate failure to file returns and pay the tax for years 2011 and 2012, the BIR said.

The BIR said it used the “Expenditure Method of Investigation” on determine the unreported income of Jeane Napoles  by comparing the amount of money she spent in acquiring several  property.

BIR said in a statement that Jeane Napoles was able to acquire and register in her name several pieces of real estate property during the taxable years 2011 and 2012.

Among those properties is a residential house situated in Los Angeles, California, USA and a farm lot in Bayambang, Pangasinan.

She acquired in 2011 a condominium unit in Los Angeles, California worth P54.73 million. She also had a 1/9 share in a Bayambang, Pangasinan property purchased in 2012 equivalent to P1.49 million.

BIR records, however, showed that “ Napoles did not file any Income Tax Return  for taxable years 2011 and 2012. “Her total income tax liability amounted to P32.06 million, inclusive of surcharges and interests, broken down into: P31.38 million in 2011 and P0.68 million in 2012. Her failure to report or misdeclare her  income was considered as prima facie evidence of her fraudulent scheme to defeat payment of taxes, the BIR said.

Meanwhile, the Justice department asked for  US help in the Philippine bid to recover  the Napoles family’s alleged ill gotten-wealth.
