Manny Pacquiao

My Accountants

Screwed Up My Taxes

Manny Pacquiao
has sued his accountants ... claiming the pencil pushers probably flunked math -- they made so many mistakes on his company's taxes.

Actually Manny's legal action is a countersuit against VisionQwest Resource Group. VisionQwest sued Manny last year for failing to pay their fees. 

Now Manny says in his countersuit -- why would anyone pay fees to accountants who not only made "numerous errors" on tax returns but gave "substandard accounting and tax advice." The lawsuit, filed by Dan Petrocelli -- the guy who kicked OJ Simpson's ass in the civil trial -- claims VisionQwest was "unscrupulous" by targeting Manny for a quick profit.

Manny also claims they are illegally holding his tax records hostage. 

FUN FACT: In the lawsuit, Manny calls himself "the world's top 'Pound for Pound' professional boxer." He also says he's the 6th highest paid athlete in the world, raking in $40 million from the second half of 2008 through the first half of 2009.

he see's them as the cause of all other societal ills.

all these pseudo celebs like mary j blige and this bigot are not responsible for any of their financial shena****ns.

The bottom line: He signed each tax return swearing under penalty of perjury that the return was correct.

Getting the Tax records should now be an easy process a judge will give him discovery to go in and get the records.

I swear these top money-making athletes must use the same financial advisers and tax people that all of the bankrupt lottery winners use.

I looked up VisionQwest, and it's almost entirely staffed by Filipinos educated in the Philippines - which routinely ranks as the #1 corrupt country in Asia.
