Tax Notes: Clarification on extension of deadlines for filing and paying tax returns for 2019

THE Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) issued Revenue Memorandum Circular (RMC) 30-2020 to further clarify RMC 28-2020 and 29-2020, both of which are on the extension of deadlines for filing and paying income tax and other various returns for 2019.

Pertinent details are as follows (see table below).

RMC 30-2020 applies to the entire region of Luzon and other jurisdictions where local government has implemented enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) or similar measures. The filing/submission of other reportorial requirements that were omitted, but the due dates of which fall within the ECQ period, shall be extended by 30 calendar days. If the ECQ period will be extended, then the filing and payment of tax returns and submission of reports and attachments falling within the extended period will also be extended by 30 calendar days.

Please be guided accordingly.
