MANILA, Philippines - A cargo forwarding company and the owner of a security agency are facing tax evasion complaints filed by the Bureau of Internal Revenue before the Department of Justice.

The BIR on Thursday said it filed two separate criminal complaints against Ernesto Nevalga Millanes, owner of Millgos Security Agency, and Trans Asia International Services and its president Rosemarie G. Aquino, for willful failure to pay taxes.

Trans Asia and Aquino are facing deficiency tax liabilities for taxable year 2006 reaching P62.76 million. Trans Asia, whose office is at the Alpha Granview Condominium in Malate, is a freight and cargo forwarder.

Millanes owns the security agency which is located along A. Mendoza corner Adelina Streets in Sampaloc, Manila. He was sued for deficiency tax liabilities for taxable year 2006 totaling P12.97 million.

The BIR said the delinquent taxpayers were served with final assessment notices and formal letters of demand, but failed to protest these assessments.
