Their action came after a BIR officer revealed they are investigating a vlogging couple who might have earned anywhere between P50 to P100 million in two years time from their vlogging activities.
Speculations were further fueled when a house and lot, along with vehicles, that appeared similar to the properties owned by JaMill went up for sale.

After several weeks of silence, JaMill finally surfaced to debunk rumors.
According to JaMill, they did get in touch with BIR about tax dues as YouTubers.
“Dumating na lang po yung panahon na pinuntahan po kami ni BIR sa bahay para i-educate po kami kung meron pong tax, which is inaasikaso na po namin ngayon sa mga tamang paraan po,” Jayzam said.
He further thumbed down speculations that they are trying to evade payment of taxes.
“Sa mga nanonood, huwag niyong isiping negatibo kapag yung mga tao ay hinahabol ng BIR. Ibig sabihin, may potensiyal kaming mga vloggers umambag dito sa Pilipinas,” Jayzam said further.
They also talked about their house being up for sale. Jayzam said they are no longer interested in selling their house, adding that it was just one of those spur of the moment decisions they made at the height of their problems.
“Yun po yung mga panahong lito po kami, hindi po namin alam ang gagawin. Pero ngayon po, straight na po yung pag-iisip namin. Pag-usapan po namin yung mga dapat po naming pag-usapan,” Jayzam said.
The vlogging couple has a new YouTube channel which has now gained almost half million subscribers.
Jayzam Manabat and Camille Trinidad, more popularly known as JaMill, is a vlogging couple who rose to fame sometime between 2017 and 2019. In past interviews, the couple said they started vlogging to document their daily lives. The couple first met in November of 2016, after which Jayzam courted Camille for several months. They became a couple on January 30, 2017, and a couple of months after, they launched their YouTube channel. Before it was deleted, their channel had more than 12 million subscribers and in 2020, JaMill ranked fourth among the top ten Filipino content creators on YouTube.
JaMill used the first episode of their new vlog to explain why they deleted their first YouTube channel. Camille deleted their channel because she wanted to focus on healing herself and repairing the cracks in her relationship with Jayzam. The female vlogger also wanted to know if they would be able to stick with each other even if they do not have a YouTube channel. According to Jayzam, he got angry at Camille for deleting the channel but he was able to calm down because of his love for her.
The vlogging couple also took time to reply to some of the comments from netizens about their YouTube comeback. They lectured the netizens who commented that they should not have come back to YouTube after quitting weeks ago. According to Jayzam, a person would not succeed in life if their decisions are based on comments from people who do not know them. On the other hand, Camille agreed with a netizen who told them that they should not make life decisions when they are emotional.
