MANILA, Philippines—The Court of Tax Appeals has rescheduled to January 16 the hearing on the  petition of boxing champ Manny Pacquiao questioning the Bureau of Internal Revenue’s writ of garnishment against his assets.

Both Pacquiao’s camp and the BIR agreed to reschedule the hearing next year.


The bureau was supposed to present evidence of its allegation that the tax court has no jurisdiction to hear Pacquiao’s petition.


Pacquiao, in July filed with the tax court a petition questioning the assessment of the BIR that he has over a billion tax liability. Then, in October, the boxing champ again filed another petition assailing the writ of garnishment issued by the BIR.

“I think they are talking in the administrative level,” Court of Tax Appeals First Division Clerk of Court Margarette Guzman said.
