On March 29, 2021, the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) issued Revenue Memorandum Circular (RMC) 41-2021 and Bank Bulletin (BB) 2021-06, both outlining the provision of tax reliefs in relation to the current surge of COVID-19 cases.
Pursuant to the BIR’s issuances, filing of returns, as well as payment of taxes due thereon, falling due within the March 22, 2021 to April 30, 2021 period may be made anywhere, even outside the jurisdiction of the Revenue District Office where the taxpayer is registered.
Taxpayers who are not mandated to use the eFPS and the eBIRForms systems are encouraged to electronically file their returns through the eBIRForms Facility and pay the corresponding taxes due thereon through any ePayment channel.
Please be guided accordingly.
