LIST: 39 celebrities among BIR's Top 500 individual taxpayers

The Bureau of Internal Revenue early this year declared Filipino boxer Manny Pacquiao as the top individual taxpayer in the Philippines for settling P163,841,853 in “regular income tax payments as of November 24, 2014.”
The other Filipino celebrities on the BIR's Top 500 list, according to the latest Tax Watch ad on celebrity taxpayers from the Department of Finance, are Piolo Pascual (14th) and John Lloyd Cruz (15th), as well as Megastar Sharon Cuneta (19th) and Kapuso TV host Willie Revillame (20th).
Host and presidential sister Kris Aquino, who led the list of individual taxpayers in 2013, slipped to 16th place in the latest BIR list.
Other celebrities in the top 100 bracket are Anne Curtis, Judy Anne Santos-Agoncillo, Coco Martin, Vic Sotto, Ramon S. Fernandez, Kim Atienza, Michael V., and Sarah Geronimo.
