AN employee of the Bureau and Internal Revenue (BIR) office in Cebu City will be tried in court for allegedly falsifying entries in the agency’s database.

The Ombudsman-Visayas charged  Mae Cheryl Enguio with  falsification and violating Republic Act 3019 or the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act.

Enguio, a computer operator of BIR,  made it appear that a couple paid  Capital Gains Tax and Documentary Stamp Tax worth P185,437.

But the BIR found out that the money was not received by the bank and no payment was made, graft investigation and prosecution officer Carmelle Baybay-Suson said in her resolution.

The ruling was approved by Deputy Ombudsman for the Visayas Elmer Paul Clemente.

The case stemmed from a  BIR investigation of the capital gains tax and documentary stamp tax of a couple whose tax returns were found to be spurious.

A comparison between the entries of the Collections Bank Reconciliation System and the Batch Control Sheet submitted by the collecting bank showed that the the alleged Capital Gains Tax and Documentary Stamp Tax payments were not paid to the bank.
