(Revenue Memorandum Circular No. 07-2020, January 23, 2020)

This Tax Alert is issued to inform all concerned on the suspension of deadlines in the acceptance of tax returns and payment of internal revenue taxes in the province of Batangas due to recent eruption of Taal Volcano.

The suspension shall cover the tax return deadlines falling in the month of January for taxpayers under the jurisdiction of RDO 58 (Batangas City, West Batangas) and RDO 59 (Lipa City, East Batangas).  No late-filing penalties shall be imposed.
