Congressman Suarez told mediamen said that the Finance department in Manila is expecting some P4 to P8-billion additional tax collection out of the national tax amnesty program being implemented throughout the country.

Said tax amnesty shall not be extended to persons or cases existing as of the effectivity of RA 9480 like withholding agents with respect to their withholding tax liabilities; those with pending cases falling under the jurisdiction of the PCGG; those with pending cases filed in court involving violation of the Anti-Money Laundering law; those pending criminal cases filed in court or in the DOJ for tax evasion and other criminal offenses; those with pending criminal cases filed in court for felonies of frauds, illegal exactions and transactions, and malversation of public funds and property; and those tax cases subject of final and executory judgment by the court.
