THE Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) categorically denied that it is reviewing the income tax return of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte.

Commissioner Caesar R. Dulay said that “he is not aware of any ongoing investigation or review of the income tax return of the President and that he has not authorized anyone to conduct one as of today.”

The Commissioner disputed a report that appeared in a leading daily broadsheet, quoting unofficial sources from the BIR, that the tax agency is investigating the income tax declaration of the President.

The Commissioner also reiterated that only his office and the BIR’s Official Spokesperson can come out with statements on matters concerning the BIR.
