Entrepreneur and Internet Celebrity Rosmar Tan reacted to the rumors that she would be forced to pay half a billion pesos in taxes after she disclosed her 13-M daily income.
On her social media page, Rosmar flexed her connection with Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) chief Romel Lumagui Jr. and asked the netizens to follow the public official.
“Pa ayuda muna tayo ngayong holiday, support BIR COMMISSIONER Romeo “Jun” Lumagui Jr. muna,” she wrote.
She even said that she was not afraid of paying taxes and even praised BIR for guiding influencers like her in the process of becoming a taxpayer.
“‘Wag mag pakalat ng fake news. Di naman nakakatakot ang BIR kasi maayos na ang sistema nila ngayon. Gagabayan at tuturuan ka pa nila sa tamang pagbabayad ng buwis,” she stated.
It can be recalled that some netizens estimated that Rosmar had a liability of P540-M in taxes after she revealed her P1.8-B annual income.
Her revelation received a mixed reaction from the netizens; some called the attention of BIR to investigate her possible tax liabilities.
Meanwhile, Rendon Labador opposed the decision of BIR to tax internet celebrities, saying that they’re already being deducted from their revenue sources.
