Quezon City court issues
TRO on BIR raw sugar tax


A Quezon City Regional Trial Court yesterday issued a 20-day Temporary Restraining Order against Revenue Regulations No. 13-2013 of the Bureau of Internal Revenue, that imposes Value-Added Tax on what sugar stakeholders consider raw sugar.

Ana Paner, chief executive officer of Victorias Milling Company, who was at the VMC arts awards last night at the Negros Museum, said that the Philippine Sugar Millers Association, of which VMC is a member, had filed a petition for a TRO questioning the validity of the revenue regulation.

She said the court also scheduled a hearing on the injunction case they filed against the regulation on Friday.

Cadiz Regional Trial Court Branch 60 Judge Renato Muñez earlier also issued a writ of preliminary injunction preventing the BIR from enforcing RR No. 13-2013

The judge was acting on a petition filed by the Rural Planters Association Inc. of UNIFED, Northern Negros Planters Association Inc., Confederation of Sugar Producers Associations, and National Federation of Sugarcane Planters for the nullification of RR No. 13-2013.*APN
