Here’s a simple challenge to the fairness of Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) Commissioner Kim Henares: Probe the finances of Corona trial lead prosecutor Rep. Niel Tupas in connection with his multi-million lot in Xavierville 1 Subdivision, Quezon City.
Henares had admitted in the impeachment trial that the BIR launched an investigation into Chief Justice Renato Corona following revelations of alleged questionable figures in his finances, even without a formal complaint before her office.
If it can be done to Corona immediately, there’s no reason why it can’t be done to Tupas. If Henares won’t investigate the congressman, she had better have an airtight justification.
Otherwise, it will be nothing less than SELECTIVE and UNFAIR implementation of BIR rules.
Just like Corona’s supposed finances, issues on Tupas’ Xavierville lot are now out in media, like the cost and doubts by the Quezon City Assessor’s Office.
Tupas spends TAXPAYERS’ MONEY, our money, in performing his functions as a congressman. The people have the right to know, immediately, if these monies are being spent properly, and legally.
Especially if there is a questionable issue against Tupas, like his capability to buy a P14-million lot on his P25,000 monthly salary as a congressman.
Anybody correct me if I’m wrong but there is no publicly known multi-million peso business of Tupas or his wife which is earning enough for them to afford the Xavierville property.
For those who missed my preceding blog, the Quezon City Assessor’s Office has categorically stated that the zonal valuation of the land in Xavierville 1is P20,000 per square meter.
The current going rate is P40,000 per square meter.
So the lot being 630 plus square meters, the price is from a low of P12 million plus at the zonal valuation of P20,000 to as high as P25 million at the current going rate of P40,000.
And that is only for the lot, people.
I consulted another wealthy businessman as I was writing this blog. He said a modest mansion nowadays would cost at least P30 million, not P15 million as I had written in my preceding blog.
So that puts the house and lot at a minimum of P40 million. Question: Is Tupas that rich?
Your floor, ladies and gentlemen.

QC ASSESSOR DOESN’T BELIEVE TUPAS
DELIA PASION SANIDAD
Tupas says he can afford it based on his and his wife’s net worth. PROOF PLEASE! His face looks like he is lying all his life.

Tupas may be corrupt like 'em. but please, Pareng Boyet, don't go out of the issue: Corona .

Kelan ba naman naging kapani-paniwala si Tupak...hello?

It’s your own opinion lang na naprove mo na malinis ka.... and the Palace backs you up kaya ganun. Loko ka, Tupas, it will take you 37 years para makapagawa ng ganiyang bahay.

Sino bang naniniwala sa kaniya?

The Sandiganbayan has yet to rule on the graft charges against the elder Tupas.
Siya pa ang me ganang magdemanda raw?
GERRY JAVIER JR. of Makati
Sananga, magdemanda siya para lalong hindi titigil ito. Pag ginawa niya yun, yan ang malaking KATANGAHAN sa buhay niya.

Ganda nito, Sir Boyet.
Sana, di mapagbalingan yung assessor. Kawawa naman.
The only way for Tupas pay ay kasuhan sa Ombudsman!
Kung may mga pinanghahawakan lang akong documents na magpapatibay diyan, kinasuhan ko na yan.
Sana, stop na nila ang mga kaekekan. Idonate na lang para sa mga nalindol. Mamahalin pa sila ni Lord.
Ang pulitiko ngayon na ang kayamanan ay walang bahid na kasinungalingan, at galing talaga sa dugo’t at pawis ay si Manny Pacquiao.
TUPAS’ TURN TO PROVE HE’S CLEAN
Let him have his side of this issue explained to the people and of course before the proper forum after a verified complaint.
If the claim is true, they should file a case against him outright...and let him defend himself in a proper forum. Congressmen and senators are not immune from criminal or administrative charges.
Maganda na rin itong nangyayari na impeachement. Labu-labo na at naglalabasan na kung ano-ano. Mamamayan, magbasa, making, unawain ang bawat sulok.Isipin maigi ang nga pangyayari. At muli, huwag magpagamit sa mga baluktot na mga pulitiko. 30
