Interjet case: you would have been left with tax money you paid for your plane tickets


Possible fraud charges against Interjet and its chief executives,which could be filed before the end of the year or early next without an agreement, stem from whether the company collected taxes from customers and employeesbut did not send the money to the government, an official with knowledge of the matter said.

Interjet's allegedly non-payment taxes are part of 6 billion pesos in government claims,said the official, who asked not to be identified because tax cases are protected by privacy laws.

The airline's tax bill amounts to 2.9 billion pesos. Partly because the company would have been left with funds withheld from employee income tax and customer value added tax (VAT) payments,according to an internal government document seen by Bloomberg News.

Interjetowes another 3.3 billion pesos in other government tariffs and fuel costs of a state-ownedcompany, while other creditors are looking for another 7.5 billion pesos, according to the document.

Interjet said in response to questions that the figures were incorrect, but refused to detail other amounts. The airline did not answer questions about tax negotiations.

On Friday afternoon, it was reported that Miguel Alemán Magnani, CEO of Interjet, and his father Miguel Alemán Velasco, president of the airline, could face fraud charges, as did the company itself, commented the aforementioned official. Negotiations could still lead to an agreement, the person added.

Interjet's alleged tax debts have complicated an effort to raise $150 million promised by a group of outside investors as a lifeguard for the airline, which is struggling with the coronavirus pandemic and brought financial problems prior to COVID-19. Bloomberg News previously reported that investors have not yet transferred the funds for fear that the government will take some of the money to cover unpaid taxes.
