With government agencies down to a skeletal workforce and movement restricted to keep the COVID-19 disease at bay, filing for tax payments are sure to be far more difficult than it usually already is. Despite this, the Department of Finance is urging taxpayers to file as early as possible to "support fight vs. COVID-19."

As a result of this emergency measure, there might be "an estimated delay and shortfall in tax collections of around P145 billion, which may have to be covered by additional borrowings by the national government," according to a statement by the Department of Finance

Those who have enrolled in the Electronic Filing and Payment System of the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) can settle their payments at their respective Authorized Agent Banks. You can also file your Annual Income Tax Returns through the eBIRForms facility and pay through the following:
