Court orders BIR:
Pay Negros coop P19.9M


The Court of Tax Appeals has ordered the Bureau of Internal Revenue commissioner to refund the Negros Consolidated Farmers Association Multi-Purpose Cooperative P19,978,638 representing erroneously paid advance Value-Added Tax covering Nov. 19, 2007 to Dec. 23, 2008.

In its decision promulgated Feb. 17, 2012, the CTA was acting on a petition filed by the cooperative against the BIR commissioner and former BIR Region 12 Director Jose Tan seeking a refund of P20,998,638 allegedly representing advance VAT payments on 205,869 LKG bags of refined sugar, erroneously or illegally collected by then BIR Region 12 Officer-In-Charge Director Rodita Galanto.

lt is clear from a cursory reading Article 61 of Republic Act No. 6938 or the Cooperative Code of the Philippines that as a cooperative the petitioner's sugar is exempt from the payment of advance sugar, the CTA said.moremoremore
