BIR offers amnesty for unpaid revenue taxes

By Rose Palacio

Davao City (21 September) -- Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) regional director Atty. Marcelinda Omila-Yap and Revenue District officer Jose Eric Furia urged taxpayers who have not settled their accounts with the BIR to come to the revenue district office (RDO) located at F. Torres Street, Davao City and avail of the amnesty program unveiled by government.

In an interview during the radio program "BIR Ug Ikaw" aired over DXOW anchored by Boy Bilaan, Director Omila-Yap said the implementing rules and guidelines of Republic Act 9480 otherwise known as Tax Amnesty Act of 2007 are now available at the regional office of BIR or RDO.

Finance Secretary Gary Teves was tasked to implement the provision of Republic Act No. 9480, "An Act Enhancing Revenue Administration and Collection by Granting an Amnesty On All Unpaid Internal Revenue Taxes Imposed by the National Government For Taxable Year 2005 and Prior Years."

These rules and regulations are promulgated to govern the availment by qualified persons or entities of the tax amnesty granted under RA 9480, covering all unpaid internal revenue taxes for the taxable year 2005 and prior years.

In case of conflict or ambiguity, which may arise in the implementation of these Rules, the Department of Finance (DOF) in coordination with the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) shall issue the necessary clarification.

The tax amnesty shall cover all national internal revenue taxes imposed by the National Government for the taxable year 2005 and prior years, with or without assessments duly issued therefore, that have remained unpaid as of December 31, 2005.

The following may avail of the tax amnesty under Ra 9480: Individuals, whether resident or nonresident citizens, or resident or nonresident aliens; Estates and trusts; Corporations; Cooperatives and tax exempt entities that have become taxable as of December 31, 2005; and other juridical entities including partnerships.

An individual taxpayer in his/her own capacity shall be treated as a different taxpayer when he acts as administrator, when he acts as administrator/executor of the estate of a deceased taxpayer.

For more details, contact the BIR 227-1833 and ask for Susan Tusoy, RDO assessment chief; Cherry, Beth Quitain or Grace Dipaling. (BIR/PIA XI) [top]
