Taxpayers beware: Don’t fall for fixer scams!

The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) is cracking down on tax cheats and imposters!

Recently, the BIR arrested a group posing as “fixers” who extorted P3.6 million from a taxpayer.

The BIR said the arrest served as a “stark reminder” to taxpayers to avoid dealing with unauthorized individuals and to always verify the credentials of anyone handling their tax affairs.

“We will help you entrap and arrest them,” BIR Commissioner Romeo D. Lumagui Jr. said.

Authorities said the arrested group posed as individuals with influence within the BIR and used forged documents bearing the signatures of high-ranking officials to pressure the taxpayer into paying the hefty sum.
