William Bonner and 20 more artists, journalists and presenters from Globo are in the sights of the IRS. A mega-operation of the agency, which started in 2020, has already assessed more than 40 employees of the station.
The IRS accuses artists and Globo of colluding to reduce the payment of taxes and to evade the tax authorities through the so-called “pejotização”.
It is not new that the broadcaster has been changing the employment contracts of its employees for some time. The so-called “contract for work” breaks the exclusive link with Globo and allows artists to take part in other commercial, cinematographic projects, among others, without committing to the house.
However, for the IRS, this is a maneuver to evade taxes, since, instead of paying 27.5% of their income on Globo (as with individuals with higher salaries), “pejotizados” professionals pay lower rates (15% on the total plus 10% on what exceeds R $ 20 thousand monthly).
According to the Notícias da TV website, which released the data exclusively, the IRS even accused the broadcaster and the artists of “criminal organization”.
The anchor of “Jornal Nacional”, William Bonner, also received a millionaire and retroactive notice. He is appealing and, like Globo, denies any irregularity in the contract. This article contains information from Ricardo Feltrin and Notícias da TV.
In response, Globo sent a statement to the iG Portal:
“Globo does not comment on issues related to administrative procedures, own or third parties, but clarifies that all forms of hiring practiced by the company, including in relation to the journalist William Bonner, are within the law and all taxes are paid regularly. like any company, Globo is subject to inspections, having also guaranteed by law the right to question, in its defense, possible undue tax collection “.
