Kris Aquino has just posted an account of her tax payments on Instagram, highlighting the fact that she has already paid a total of P322 Million in taxes in a span of 8 years.
KAMI saw in the video that she uploaded, that she also released the official statement from her lawyers concerning people who use social media to cause unjust vexation against Kris.
They also said that those individuals would have to exercise "due diligence when levying accusations about tax compliance especially when they are not a party to any of the cases" filed by Kris.
The official statement didn't only touch on those topic as it also clarified the issue about Alice Eduardo regarding the issue on helping her with her taxes.
In the statement, it stated that Kris would not tolerate tax evasion and that there is a dividing line between her friendship with Alice Eduardo and the latter's business.
This official statement came after Gretchen Barretto accused Kris of helping Alice Eduardo by "tapping Kim Henares," so that Alice could allegedly pay lower taxes.
"She (Alice Eduardo) was being charged with hundreds of millions or billions and Kris Aquino helped by tapping Kim Henares, if I'm not mistaken, so the fee would be lower. That's what happened,"
Here's the full statement from Divina Law:
"First, our client did not intervene for Ms. Eduardo in any pending tax case.
Second, our client is a friend of Ms. Eduardo for seven years already, and she knows her to be a law abiding citizen. However, the personal relationship of our client with Ms. Eduardo does not extend to her business interests.
Ms. Aquino has been in the entertainment industry for the decades, and in those three decades, the Filipino people are witness to her tireless dedication, hardwork, and commitment to her craft, whether as a movie actress, game show host, talk show presenter or a trusted product endorser. Ms. Aquino prides herself with the fact that, fro the time she first entered the industry, she has faithfully obeyed and adhered to the rule imposed by her mother, former President Cory Aquino: TO REPORT HER INCOME ACCURATELY AND PAY TAXES TO THE LAST CENTAVO. It is through the responsible paying of taxes that she may honor the support given to her by the Filipino people.
The certified and published tax records of our client prove that, from 2008 to 2015, she has ranked among the country's top taxpayers. In fact, in 2011, she was the number 1 individual taxpayer in the country.
We reiterate that our client did not and will never aid, abet or tolerate any tax evasion by anyone.
Individuals using social media to cause unjust vexation against our client, Ms. Aquino, should first do their due diligence when levying accusations about tax compliance, especially when they are not a party to any of the cases filed by our client, or those filed against our client."
