Chipongian Incoming Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) chief, Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) Assistant Governor Lilia C.Guillermo said that as an IT expert, she will pursue an expanded digitized tax collection for transparency and more efficiency.“As I’ve said, I need to know details, I would just tell him that if ever BIR has to collect the taxes, it’s not him who will pay for the amount but the estate,” she said on ANC.“As a former Deputy Commissioner of the BIR and IT practitioner, I am committed to strengthening tax administration through digitalization.Nevertheless, Guillermo said Marcos should serve as a “role model” in paying taxes.This will make the tax collection system more efficient and less prone to graft and corruption,” said Guillermo on Friday, June 24.] The Marcoses will now pay their taxes because they comply with the law.BSP Assistant Governor Lilia Guillermo, incoming BIR chief Guillermo was recruited by outgoing BSP Governor Benjamin E.SEC Commissioner Javey Paul Francisco has reported to the DOF that the SEC has already processed 69,350 online applications for business registrations via eSPARC since its launch, of which 25,685 were for 2022 only.

Guillermo was in the news of late after declaring that at least under her watch as tax chief, she will collect the Marcos clan’s tax liabilities worth P203 billion.She will collect in compliance with the Supreme Court decision to go after the unpaid taxes, but she has to review the documents first and assess how much is actually collectible estate taxes.If ever the Marcos estate pays, Guillermo said the amount would really help in the BIR’s collections."We have to convert those properties to cash para madagdag sa tax collections ng BIR.On Friday, Guillermo reiterated that she is “honored to have been entrusted by President-elect Ferdinand Marcos Jr.with the task of further digitalizing the country’s tax collection system” as BIR chief.Give me the time to go over the documents, how much are we talking about? I don’t know if it’s really P200 billion and maybe if that’s really the amount, it will really help in the collections of BIR,” she explained.“It is my honor to accept the post as head of the BIR.In 1997, the Supreme Court ruled with finality a Court of Appeals decision indicating that the clan owed P23 billion in estate tax.

I am thankful for the trust placed in me by the President-elect,” she said.A Supreme Court document showed that the ruling to affirm the Court of Appeals decision on the Marcos estate tax in 1994 was final and executory and that the deficiency income was unappealable.Guillermo, who was recognized as “one of the most powerful women in IT in the Philippines” in 2013, has a “wealth of experience” in the IT field as the managing director of the BSP’s Technology and Digital Innovation Office.She was on top of implementing the central bank’s IT Modernization Roadmap since 2018 and supposedly until 2023.The Department of Finance under the Duterte administration said the BIR continues to demand the settlement of the estate tax debt of the Marcos family.In April, a month ahead of the national and local elections, Senator Aquilino Pimentel III filed a resolution seeking the conduct of investigation over the BIR’s failure to collect the estate tax obligation of the family, which could have helped the country amid the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) pandemic.She also led the BSP’s digital transformation objectives of shifting at least 50 percent of all retail transactions into digital form by next year.As of end-2020, 20.Rodriguez also assured the public that Marcos, as the incoming president, would implement and follow Philippine laws related to the issue.
