In order to provide relief to taxpayers who will not be able to prepare, let alone file, the necessary income tax return documents on or before the original deadline of 15 April 2020 due to the enhanced community quarantine, the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) issued Revenue Memorandum Circular No. 28-2020 (RMC 28-2020) on 18 March 2020.

With the issuance of the RMC 28-2020, all taxpayers are advised that the filing and payment of 2019 Annual Income Tax Returns (AITR) is extended from 15 April 2020 to 15 May 2020 without the imposition of penalties to taxpayers.

Taxpayers may file and pay the taxes due to any Authorized Agent Banks (AAB) nearest to the location of the taxpayer or to any Revenue Collection Officer under the Revenue District Office (file and pay anywhere).
