Pacquiao does not have to post $75M bond in PI tax case

August 22, 2014

Manny Pacquiao will not have to pay $75.2 million in taxes…yet.  This is based on a recent Philippine Supreme Court ruling which stated that the government could not seize the boxer’s assets while his income tax case is being heard per Yahoo! Sports.

The tax issue was based on the claim that the Filipino boxer had unpaid taxes totaling 2.2 billion pesos (roughly $45 million U.S. dollars) in 2008 and 2009.  Prior to the court ruling, Pacquiao would have had to provide a cash bond of 3.3 billion pesos ($75.2 million), which is the tax amount that is in dispute.

Per Yahoo! Sports, Pacquiao claims that he paid the 2008-2009 taxes in the U.S. and due to an agreement between the U.S. and the Philippines he did not have to pay the tax bill in the Philippines to avoid double taxation.  The Philippines claims that he did not provide evidence that he paid the amount in the U.S.  Even if he did pay, he’d still have debt in the Philippines because the taxes were higher in the Philippines.

Payout Perspective:

The fact that Pacquiao’s career earnings greatly exceed the $75.2 million in dispute is a red flag and something we’ve written about in the past.  The great fear is that Pacquiao could end up bankrupt at the end of his career despite being one of the highest paid fighters in recent memory.  Moreover, how must it look for a public official in the Philippines to have such a case for unpaid taxes.  For Pacquiao’s sake, hopefully he has trustworthy attorneys and accountants that can find their way out of this mess.
