Electronic BIR Forms (eBIRForms) are Now Available

Not so long ago after the release of the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) Interactive Forms, now, the BIR released the Electronic BIR Forms (eBIRForms).  The roll out was made last October 16, 2012.   What are eBIR Forms?

The Electronic Bureau of Internal Revenue Forms (eBIRForms) Package is developed primarily to provide taxpayers with accessible and convenient service through easy preparation.  eBIRForms is an alternative mode of preparing tax returns which deviates from the conventional manual process of filling up tax returns on pre-printed forms that are highly susceptible to human error.  The package allows the taxpayers to accomplish or fill up the forms offline. Taxpayers can directly encode data, validate, edit, save, delete, view and print their tax returns.  The package has automatic computations and has the capability to validate information inputted by the taxpayers.

UPDATE: BIR issued Revenue Regulations No. 6-2014 mandating the use of eBIRForms for all non-eFPS filers also updating the list of the forms within the eBIRForms.

Among others, the benefits of using the eBIRForms are:

 Saves time because of automatic computations and auto-populated fields
 Easy to use
 Lessens human errors because of the validation feature
 Available even to those without consistent internet connection
 Captures taxpayer data

The eBIRForms press release was made first via BIR Monitor, which can be accessed here.  The eBIRForms application covers Thirty-one (31) BIR Forms comprised of 3 Income Tax Returns; 5 Excise Tax Forms; 2 VAT Forms; 10 Withholding Tax Forms; 2 Documentary Stamp Tax Forms; 4 Percentage Tax Forms; 4 ONETT Forms and 1 Payment form which are enumerated below.  These forms are for use by non-eFPS taxpayers.

The eBIRForms Package is Phase 2 of the project “Provision of Solution for the use of Interactive Forms for Filing of Tax Returns”.  Phase 1 of the project produced BIR Form Nos. 1700, 1701 and 1702 in interactive format for use by all taxpayers starting March 15, 2012.

  2. simple lang ako.I just need to settle my 1601e for my clinic rentals. this new ebirforms is giving me a headache. I just found out about this today, the last day of payment. This is such a hassle for me. I have to present the eforms at the bank or they won’t accept my payment.I’m trying to be a good citizen here. THey should make payments easy for something like this if they want more people to pay their taxes…250.00 pesos lang ang kailangan kong bayaran

    Posted by carol | November 10, 2014, 5:23 am
    • Yes, we hear you. Actually, there were a lot of articles regarding these eBIRForms but I think the campaigns are still not enough. They should have written letters to all taxpayers and made it know to the public through radio and television. Puro dyaryo lang po kasi eh, at through internet.

      Posted by leecpa | November 10, 2014, 6:43 am
  3. panu po ba idownload yan . ang hirao hirap naman kase ng gusto nila di pa masave ng maayos ..

  5. Ayaw tumanggap ng PNB kung hindi rin lang gawin ang e-BIRforms.. Inaasahan nila lahat ng taxpayers na may laptop at printer? Paano kung katulad ko na may sari sari store lang na nagbabayad dati using the handwritten forms. Pumupunta lang ako sa internet cafe. I tried to seek from the staff nila. pero hindi raw ma down load. sinubok namin ang 1701Q pero hindi ma print at nawawala ang connection kahit i-save muna.

  9. 78MB na file ang kailangan mong i download para makuha yun isang form na kelangan mo? then hindi ko rin makita yung file na kelangan ko. nag install ako ng app nila pero dahil wala akong printer. nagtry ako magsave pero hindi pwede. Dapat diretso print from your computer kpag download. B*S*. Dont tell me milyon ginastos para sa software nato.

  17. bakit ang BIR cannot understand the suffering of the small taxpayers in the imposition of their eBIR forms na umpisa pa lang to click download ( 1-2 hrs daw), eto wala pang 30 minutes at offline na ‘yung website nila. tapos ma-late ka na pag-file dahil ayaw tanggapin kahit ang old form na lang ang gamitin kaya ayun penalty! di po kc lahat ng computer shops nakakapag-download ng required files. pleez lang, paki-explain bakit kayo walang puso, nagbabayad naman kami ng maayos?

  25. ano pong required documents attached kung magfafile ng 2551M as a professional? kailangan ba ipakita yung mga receipts at books?

    Posted by Kaye | March 26, 2015, 11:12 am
  26. oh thank you! and if I pay at an AAB, kailangan pa ba ifile ulit yun sa BIR RDO ko or basta nabayaran ko na sa AAB, ok na siya?

    Posted by Kaye | March 26, 2015, 11:15 am
    • If covered by mandatory use of eBIRForms, then you should file and submit it online first, then submit to AAB, print and attach the confirmation of submission. No need to file sa RDO.

      Posted by leecpa | March 26, 2015, 11:17 am
      • diba pwedeng eBIRforms offline yung gamitin? I printed the eBIRform I accomplished offline tapos prinint ko, pwede bang ifile ko yun sa AAB and pay manually without submitting it online? ang ginawa ko kasi I used the eBIRform I downloaded from BIR’s website, pero offline ko siya inaccomplish.

        Posted by Kaye | March 26, 2015, 11:23 am
      • If you are covered by mandatory use of eBIRForms, you need to submit it online. That also requires you to register online. 🙂 if not covered then you can just print it from offline and submit/pay the bank.

        Posted by leecpa | March 26, 2015, 12:15 pm
  27. may i know who are those covered by the mandatory use of eBIRforms?

    Posted by Kaye | March 26, 2015, 12:27 pm
  28. That’s the problem, I’m not sure if I fall under any of those haha! I’m pretty sure kasi that I don’t fall under the other categories, nalilito lang ako jan sa 1st category na yan. So if I’m not a tax agent nor a client of a tax agent, I don’t fall under this category: “Accredited Tax Agents/Practitioners and all its client-taxpayers” naman diba?

    Btw, I’m a research consultant 🙂 ang dami pa kasing process ng online submission e, kahit yung enrolment niya medyo hassle kasya mas gusto ko sana magsubmit manually. you think I don’t have to submit online naman no?

    Posted by Kaye | March 26, 2015, 1:14 pm
  29. I tried calling them already but they told me to attend the seminar instead of answering me directly which I cannot attend since I have class. Anyway, I’ll go pay my tax tomorrow at an AAB, fingers crossed that I can still pay my tax manually and no need to submit online. Paying taxes in this country is a pain in the ugh. lol Gosh. But thanks so much, I learned a lot! 🙂

    Last question though, what should I choose, calendar or fiscal year in my form 2551M? 😉

    Posted by Kaye | March 26, 2015, 1:22 pm
    • Calendar. 🙂 Goodluck.. Update us too if they accept it. But I think the rule is clear that only those who are mandated to use eBIRForms are required.

      Posted by leecpa | March 26, 2015, 1:24 pm
      • Thanks! sure! I will update and share (or rant lol) my experience with everyone tomorrow 🙂

        Wait last na talaga, para lang sure, if I pay with an AAB, di na kailangan ifile yung return sa RDO right? Thanks so much, Mr. Orlando! 🙂

        Posted by Kaye | March 26, 2015, 1:30 pm
      • Yes, no need. 🙂

        Posted by leecpa | March 26, 2015, 1:31 pm
  30. Hi! as promised! yep, they accepted my printed offline form of 2551M! 🙂

    However, I also attended the seminar earlier and we are all encouraged to file our tax returns online next time, so we have to register online. So yeah, I think I’ll be registering na. I have one quick question though, may kailangan kasing iselect na category dun sa “reason for e-filing”, is it correct na i’m under the “volunteering taxpayer”?

    Posted by Kaye | March 27, 2015, 3:01 pm
  31. HAHA i thought so! 😛 thanks for this free consultation, kahit busy ka you still make time for us, innocent ones (in terms of tax filing)!

    so if I sign up sa eBIRForm na online, that’ll do? i mean isang system lang naman pupuntahan nila if i submit it online? and wala pa namang existing memo for mandatory e-payment diba so ok lang talaga na sa eBIRForm magsign-up instead na sa efps mismo?

    Posted by Kaye | March 27, 2015, 3:30 pm
  32. omg! i’m trying to register sa eBIRforms online na tapos invalid daw yung TIN ko. i already have COR, double checked kung pareho nakainput sa TIN ko from the start and tama naman. have you or anyone you know ever encountered this problem?ano kayang mga possible reasons?

    Posted by Kaye | March 27, 2015, 3:57 pm
    • You have to check with the BIR. Nangyayari talaga yan..

      Posted by leecpa | March 27, 2015, 3:59 pm
      • and they say they’re making things easier…can this become any much harder? oh please. anyway, meron namang available computers para sa signing up nitong mga ito sa mga RDO diba so I can show them?

        crap, ayoko na sana mangulit e :(( dami ko na namang rant, sorry! 😦

        Posted by Kaye | March 27, 2015, 4:06 pm
  33. good day, How do I submit my 1701 ebir offline to online if it keeps on saying its still under construction? its already April 4, 2015, how will they accommodate the flooding of 1701 forms when constructed already.. Can I just pay the bank with my 1701 form? kindly advice. Thank you.

    Posted by Ricky Tejada | April 4, 2015, 6:04 am
    • Days ago the online eBIRForms system is not yet ready for online submission of the 1700 series (i.e. 1700, 1701 and 1702).. I think they are working on it now so just try again later. I think the direction previously was to really manually file when the site is under construction.

      • Me too. I tried accessing online registration of ebirforms via google chrome but the bir system says quote this webpage is not available unquote. what will I do? When April 15th comes and still I can’t register on-line, who will pay the penalty for non-filing of my first quarter ITR for year 2015?

      • I was able to make the online registration of eBirforms at around 7:30 am today. According to the Account Activation Instruction, I need to go to the RDO where I registered and bring the E-mail Enrollment Notification among others. The question is – there is no E-mail Enrollment Notification in my designated email address. How long do I have to wait for this E-mail Notification? Please advise Thank you

        Posted by edwin | April 10, 2015, 7:11 am
      • You should receive that right away. One possibility is that you may have misspelled your e-mail.. Actually, for most cases, after you receive such notification, you need not go to the RDO, you will instantly receive your username and password after about 3 hours or less…

        Posted by leecpa | April 10, 2015, 8:43 am
      • In case I misspelled my email address, both primary and secondary, what will I do?. Please advise. Thanks

        Posted by edwin | April 10, 2015, 10:14 am
      • Go to your RDO and they will correct whatever wrong info in your enrollment. Bring documents to support you own the TIN and that enrollment of course.

        Posted by leecpa | April 10, 2015, 10:20 am
      • I went to BIR RDO 029 but the person in charge of activating my enrollment does not know what to do. She suggested me to request for the deletion of my enrollment registration and once deleted, I can proceed again for new enrollment. Hassle. As you suggested earlier, the BIR people should check and correct the possible reason for me not receiving said email notification. What do you suggest me to do or where should I go? Further, under FAQ during enrollment, puede daw ma-view the enrollment I made by clicking the ‘Submitted Tax Returns’ link. Kaya lang I do not know where is it. Please help me. Thanks

  35. Hi Sir, I’am a Private employee but I have a small Gen. Mdsg Store. I try to file my Annual Income Tax return but when I try to submit to E BIR Forms online it says that still under construction. How can I file my Annual ITR when the RDO dont want to accept and inform me that it should be submitted online? Its quiet confusing na po. Thanks

    Posted by Arlene Gonzales | April 7, 2015, 6:06 am
  36. Hello! I have just been to my RDO this afternoon hoping to file my 1701 but they wouldn’t accept because according to the officer, there isn’t a memo yet from the commissioner to accept manual filing. I was told to make sure that my version of ebirforms is 4.7. I checked what I downloaded before and it is 4.7.06. Is it the same? I even asked the officer to try opening the portal just for him to see that it keeps saying “under construction”. They don’t seem to be aware of it.

  38. I’m trying to submit my 1601-E and 1701-Q online but I can’t access eBIR portal to login. Both don’t have taxes due, so i just want to submit them online and not to queue the whole day at my RDO. It says IE error. Buggy software perhaps? Any advice?

  41. Dear Sir,
    Good AM!

    I just want to ask anu po ang pwedeng alternative n gawin to submit 1701 forms to online ebirforms lagi po kasi lumalabas under construction. 2 days n po ako nagtatry.Hope to hear from you,
    Thank you.

  42. Dear Sir,
    I paid for my tax due at the AAB and submitted 2 copies of 1701 today. I ask the bank teller kung magsusubmit pa ako online ng 1701. Di nila alam. I read in your past comments yung ebir forms mandatory coverage. Do I fall in ONE Time Transaction taxpayers? I only pay annually. innosente po ako sa ganun. Pls. enlightened soon. Thank you po.

    Posted by bertha | April 10, 2015, 12:19 pm
    • Bakit po annually lang bayad nyo? Pag 1701 po dapat may quarterly yan.. Eh sa inyo po since di kayo “no payment” return at di din naman kayo nagfifile thru an agent eh di po kayo mandated.. Pero encouraged po kayo to file online before payment..

      Posted by leecpa | April 10, 2015, 12:22 pm
      • Quarterly ba dapat ako? My job is a GP in an HMO. Basically, I received a fixed rate with a 10% WT. I have no receipts issued. Pls. reply. thanks po.

        Posted by bertha | April 10, 2015, 3:23 pm
      • Practicing professionals and self-employed should be filing 1701Q and 1701.. Ano po ba yung GP? Kasi you will need to register sa BIR as practicing professional or self-employed to file 1701 and you should issue receipts.. 10% withholding tax since you are earning less than 720K, right?

        Posted by leecpa | April 10, 2015, 4:06 pm
  43. General physician. I was registered na before sa bir from previous work and i continued lang. I received way way below 720k. .receipts are c/o hmo. Ano sir,am I doing right? Do i need to file online? Thanks for your understandin an patience.

    Posted by bertha | April 10, 2015, 9:11 pm
    • Here, as a practicing professional (GP), you are required to file quarterly income tax return in addition to your annual income tax return. Filing online, no not really required, you will not fall under ONETT. You mentioned that you are earning way below 720k annually, well, it’s a bit surprising.. Also you need to issue receipts to the HMO for income received from them and the should issue you BIR form 2307 for the withholding tax.

      Posted by leecpa | April 11, 2015, 2:06 am
      • Unfortunately, di pa ako bir registered. Pero nagpapass ako ng form 1701. Do I need to pass agad 1701q? Sana makareply k n sir kc para ipapass ko tomorrow. If I have to. Me iba pa bang bir forms. Na. Dapat. Ipass. I’m not bir. Registered. P. Sir. Thank s

  45. Good afternoon,

    I’ve like to raise an issue regarding BIR’s EFPS monthly submission of witholding tax and vat. The site’s traffic is so slow and in some case it even exceed the 5 minutes session clearing. Is there a way to address this network traffic?

    We are located at Visayas, using inter dual core computers and DSL line. Video streaming and web browsing is fast except BIR’s EFPS.

    Posted by Rolando Desacula - MIS-in-charge | April 13, 2015, 8:08 am
    • Just file late night or early in the morning.. 🙂

      Posted by leecpa | April 13, 2015, 10:26 am
      • Good morning, we are still processing our EFPS until this morning but we still experienced this network traffic.

        I’ve tried the other pages from the BIR website and it works fast, while EFPS pages are extremely slow.

        We’ve tried to reset our router, even remove all other computers on our network hoping that would resolve the issue at our end, still the network traffic are getting worst.

  53. I was able to enroll with ebirforms yesterday, and luckily received e-mail enrollment notification in my email address. I am expecting also an automatic e-mail from bir for the temp password, as I did not chose any of the taxpayer’s classification, but until now, no temp password is received. I need to go to RDO for the activation of my account reg’n and to provide me with temp password. Once it is provided to me, can I immediately e-file my tax return, especially the 2551M due April 20th. Pls advise. Thank you.

  54. Good day!
    NakapagReister na po ako sa ebirforms, hinihintay ko na lang yung email verification na nakapagReg na ako. Kaso 5 days na wala pa rin verification na dumadating. Ano po ba ang possible na problema? Iniisip ko na kung magRegister na lang kaya ako ulit… possible po ba yun?

    Posted by Mari | April 17, 2015, 7:21 am
    • ako walang natanggap na enrollment notification sa email. dumating nalang basta sakin yung temporary password ko after mga 1 week 😦 haha but now, i’m trying to upload/submit my no-payment 2014 ITR pero nageerror “TIN NOT FOUND” wow 😦

      Posted by pol | April 29, 2015, 9:56 am
      • Magsusubmit rin kami ng 1702EX kaso wala eh. palpak. Wala pa rin Email notification. Ilang beses na akong pumunta sa BIR office dahil nga sa problema pinipilit pa rin nila na iSubmit raw yung Email noti kasi imposibleng daw na walang email na dumating. Nakakainis na talaga ang BIR!

        Posted by Mari | May 13, 2015, 2:37 am
  55. I’ve already registered sa ebirforms pero when I upload the xml files saved from the offline package, nag-error: “XML file invalid. Please check the file and upload again.” Please help. Late filing na yung 2551M dahil sa error na to.

    Posted by LXG | April 21, 2015, 1:09 pm
    • If you are registered in the online eBIRForms system, the you should not upload any xml file. What you should do is click “Final Copy” then there’s a pop up window where you can choose to submit it using eBIRForms system. Choose that, then it will ask for your username and password, then you can already submit.

      Posted by leecpa | April 21, 2015, 11:27 pm
      • also experiencing the same issue however, when I click submit using the eBIRForms software, nothing happens to I tried uploading mismo the eBIRForms website and ayun nga, error 😦

        Posted by pol | April 29, 2015, 9:57 am
      • ginawa ko rin yan kaso ganun pa rin siya may lumalabas na error “XML file invalid. Please check the file and upload again.” ilang beses ko na siya tnry kaso ayaw p rin. Please help me. thanks!

        Posted by cjg | May 8, 2015, 6:09 pm
      • I think only the xml file from 3rd party application is allowed to be uploaded there. The xml file generated by the eBIRForms offline is for purposes of the RDO/e-mail submission only. Just my opinion, since I’m not an very knowledgeable in IT.

        Posted by leecpa | May 8, 2015, 11:27 pm
  56. ano po ung purpose ng ESubmission kung merun naman EFPS & Ebirforms, di ba sa EFPS & EBirforms pwede ka din magsubmit?

  58. Taxes from taxpayer is the main reason why the government build bakit masyadong maraming pahirapan sa pagbabayad ng taxes. Papaano magsisipag ang Pilipino na Magparegister,magfile and pay kung hindi gumagana ng maayos ang Electronic system ng BIR. Parang ang serye ay tinuturuan ang Pinoy na umiwas sa pagbabayad ng kanyang buwis dahil pinapahirapan kahit magbabayad na sana. I hope BIR will do immediate action to the problems.

  59. Pano po malalaman kung ano ang nakasave na password sa e-birforms kung napalitan na, yung temporary password kasi po napalitan ko na kaso ayaw naman gumana ng password. Nung nagtratry akong magonline ayaw tanggapin kasi naghang ang site during na nagpapalit ako, Chineck ko dun sa “forgot password” ayaw naman tanggapin ang user account ko na Agroinvestment6756 and sabi pa ng site walang ganung account. Nagpunta ako sa BIR 047 ang sabi ng officer of the day eh hindi nila alam kasi masyado daw technical and binigyan ako ng contact center na 925-20-15 ring lang ng ring at wala namang sumasagot ganun din sa 981-88-88 ganundin sa email ad na sabi ko sa OD kung puedeng puntahan ang BIR helpdesk, hindi daw puede at hindi ako papapasukin magtry na lang daw ako. and baka kako puede nya kaming issuehan na katunayan na may problema ang password ko, hindi daw sila nagbibigay. Now ano po ang gagawin namin.

  84. Bakit kapag sa bir ako mismo nagfile ng 2551m hindi ko n kailangan mag sign up ng username and password. Ngayon nagdownload ako sa pc bakit kailangan pa mag sign up wla ako yelephone number useless din. Kailangan ko pa rin sa bir mismo magfile. Nkakapagod. No transaction na nga lang papahirapan ka pa.
