THE BUREAU of Internal Revenue (BIR) filed last June 28 separate criminal complaints with the Office of the Provincial Prosecutor against three individuals in Batangas for operating businesses that are not registered with the agency. Charged were Leoncia Diaz, owner of Household Needs for Less in Balayan, Guillerma S. Masalunga, owner of Masalunga Beach House Resort in San Juan, and Lamberti P. Sulit, owner of Dakila Beach Resort, also in San Juan. The two resorts were issued business permits by the local government of San Juan, but all three did not have a BIR registration. BIR said the respondents committed the offense of Unlawful Pursuit of Business for failure to register with the BIR as required under the Tax Code.
