So its Willie! He's gone a long way. I can't imagine how he because a millionaire with just one show! Is ABS-CBN really paying him that much just for one noon-time show? If Willie has become millionaire with that how much more those tv celebrities with more than two shows like Joey de Leon. Now all the more, I want to become TV host. Ha!ha!ha!

Wowowee. For that sum of money, he's really filthy rich. Did he paid in pesos or dollars? I hope he pays the right price and the government will not let this money seep into those hidden pockets.

hm... i guess what spoiledbrat802 posted must be true... why would anyone's tax reach 6.2 million pesos if he has being paying his taxes promptly? i do thinks there's something fishy about him that's why he had to pay such a large amount. =)

He should pay that big of an amount since his show contributes greatly to the idiotization of the masses.

I am guessing that it is Willie Revillame.. I guess Abs cbn is paying him a lot because of the popularity of their show. Willie has a charisma I think. And I heard he is also very generous that is why he has a lot of blessings.

Woah!! Thats too much tax! But that is good for the government. Even if he didnt disclose just how much he is earning you just have to look at his tax and do the math. You can really say that he is filthy rich. Its also nice of him to pay his taxes personally but Im wondering if he did it for the publicity because that much tax and pose unknown dangers to him and his family and of course you dont have to tell the world just how much you 'give' to the government.
