2 Maguindanao town execs charged over unremitted Pag-IBIG premiums, taxes

A mayor and treasurer of a Maguindanao town face charges over the failure to remit Pag-IBIG premiums from April 2007 to November 2007, the Office of the Ombudsman said.

The Ombudsman affirmed the finding of probable cause holding South Upi, Maguindanao Mayor Abdullah Campong and town treasurer Onofre Natividad liable for the Pag-IBIG premiums mess.

Campong and Natividad face eight counts of violation of Section 23 of Presidential Decree No. 1752, which created the Pag-IBIG Fund.

Both were also linked to the failure to remit taxes withheld on employees’ compensation from January 2007 to December 2007

Because of this, they face 12 counts of violation of Section 272 (b) of Republic Act No. 8424, an act amending the National Internal Revenue Code.

The Ombudsman said Campong and Natividad are primary fiduciary officers responsible for making sure that Pag-IBIG contributions and BIR taxes are promptly paid and remitted.

Investigation showed Pag-IBIG sent to the Office of the Mayor in November 2007 a copy of the Schedule of Unremitted Contributions and Government Counterpart.

“PD No. 1752 mandates employers to remit contributions within 15 days from the date the contributions were collected while R.A. No. 8424 provides that payment of income tax withheld on compensation shall be made on or before the 10th day of the month following the month in which the withholding was made,” the Ombudsman said.
