The Court of Tax Appeals (CTA) has directed the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) to “cease and desist” from collecting the P3.29-billion alleged tax deficiency of Sen. Manny Pacquiao and wife Jinkee for years 2008 and 2009 pending decision on the senator’s petition questioning the BIR’s assessment.

In a 38-page resolution promulgated last July 27, the tax court’s First Division said the BIR committed “several violations and irregularities” when it issued its Final Decision on Disputed Assessment (FDDA) in which it said that Pacquiao and his wife have a total of P3.29 billion in unpaid tax obligations.
