BIR to go after the couple who earned P50 to P100 million and deleted their YouTube channel

 The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) said that it will run after the couple who  deleted their social media channel. According to their initial investigation the couple earned P50 to P100 million in the past two years which enable them to buy their mansion in Manila and luxury car.

The government agency did not disclosed the names of the couple to which they believed they deleted their channel to avoid taxes. BIR sources said that the couple decided to delete their channel days after BIR Commissioner Caesar Dulay announced that social media influencers earning from YouTube and Facebook should pay taxes.

The BIR added that the couple has more than 11-million subscribers.

"Sana wag matakot ang publiko, ang obligasyon ng pagreregister is iba naman sa pagbabayad ng buwis," said Atty. Marissa Cabrero, BIR's deputy commissioner for legal group.

Vloggers are considered self-employed individuals and are subject to 12% VAT if their yearly income is more than P3-million. In case the earning is more than P250,000 but less than P3 million annually, they are subject to pay 8% tax. However, earning below P250,000 and below annually are exempted from paying taxes.
