Errors of BIR in posting the Top Individual Taxpayers of 2009 - Bandong and Taparan complain

The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) seemed to have an error in declaring the Top Individual Taxpayers for 2009. This was after two of the top listed millionaires complained to BIR.

Rosabelle Bandong, a six-years Associate Editor turned to be the second top taxpayer having a tax paid of P57,867,521 where according to her tax returns proof, her paid tax was only P57,000.

Similarly, according to local news reports, Atty. Francis Carlo Taparan, P38,750,002 who landed at No. 4 as the BIR's top taxpayer in 2009 proved that he just paid a total of 38, 000 pesos.
BIR admitted that a rounding off errors happened causing wrong names to appear in the list. Meanwhile, they are seeking apology to the affected employees and said that a reshuffling of encoders will be made to ensure reliability and minimize carelessness in entering the data. Bandong and Taparan, upon their complains were already removed in the Top Individual Taxpayers for 2009.
