In answer to the tax evasion case filed by the Bureau of International Revenue against him, Zoren Legaspi issued a statement, which was read verbatim by host Kris Aquino on Aquino and Abunda Tonight.
“Sang-ayon po ako na ang tamang buwis ay kailangan bayaran para sa ikauunlad ng bayan. I’m more than willing to comply and cooperate regarding the ongoing investigation to assess my tax liabilities. Aalamin po namin kung saan kami nagkamali or kung nagkulang ba kami sa paliwanag. I’m glad that the BIR brought their initial findings to the DOJ, that means they’re doing their job. I love my country kaya I will never evade my tax obligation. I just need to figure out kung saan kami nagkamali without malice or intention. Waiting lang po sa official complaint ng BIR. Salamat po sa lahat ng mga concerned.”
