To have a better comparative view, I created a bar graph below to show how far they are distributed with each other in their income tax paid.
What I noticed is that the Forbes-listed Filipino Billionaires (Henry Sy, Lucio Tan, Andrew Tan, Enrique Razon Jr., Eduardo Cojuangco and Roberto Ongpin) are never found or included in the Top 20 Individual Taxpayers in the Philippines. Did you notice it?

In my own simple mind understanding the richer you are the more income you gain and therefore, more taxes payable. How is it so that they boast of being the richest in the country and yet do not pay as high? Well, of course this is just a rhetorical question because we all know the answer already. Even our hero Pacquiao learn how to evade paying taxes as he grow richer.

Tama ka Asero, parang tax evaders sila. Ganun ka "wise" ang mga richest men in the Philippines! Paano kaya kung magiging isa ka sa mga pinakamayaman sa Pilipinas, magbabayad ka kaya honestly ng tax.
