The BIR sets annual deadline on the filing of the ITR. For this year, the deadline was set on April 17.

Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) expressed that there would be no extension for the filing of the Income Tax Return (ITR). The deadline of the payment remains on April 17.

Commissioner Romeo Lumagui Jr. stressed that “we are all partners in nation-building” and the timely payment of the taxes lead to immediate funding of the programs of the government.

“The deadline for filing and payment of our 2022 AITRs is on the 17th day of April 2023, Monday,” Lumagui said.

Based on the report, taxpayers are encouraged to utilize the “file and pay anywhere” in paying for their annual taxes. The said mode paves the way for faster filing of taxes and the government agency said that there is now no reason for non-compliance since the process is convenient.

A taxpayer who fails to pay the taxes beyond April 17 will entail interests, surcharges, and penalties.
