Is using eBIRForms mandatory? Find out.

No more manual BIR forms, only eBIRForms?

Recently, the Bureau of Internal Revenue issued Revenue Regulations (RR) No. 6-2014 making  it mandatory for non-eFPS filers or taxpayers to use eBIRForms covering thirty six (36) BIR Forms in the preparation and filing of their returns effective September 24, 2014. Among those covered are:

  1. Accredited Tax Agents/Practitioners and all its client-taxpayers;
  2. Accredited Printers of Principal and Supplementary Receipts/Invoices;
  3. One-Time Transaction (ONETT) taxpayers;
  4. Those who shall file a “No Payment” Return;
  5. Government-Owned or -Controlled Corporations (GOCCs);
  6. Local Government Units (LGUs), except barangays; and
  7. Cooperatives registered with National Electrification Administration (NEA) and Local Water Utilities Administration (LWUA)

On the first month of it’s effectivity, questions regarding the eBIRForms mushroomed various social media networks and it turned out that a lot of taxpayers are not aware of the issuance and find the implementation really inefficient. One of the most common struggle is that, banks and RDOs are no longer accepting manual forms.

  1. Sir, i am amending my 2012 ITR…since it is already mandatory to use the ebir forms how can i amend this particular year when in the system (ebir 1701 template/module) it doesnt accept /validates the year 2012 because a message pops out upon pressing validation key such as ” valid input for the month and year should not be earlier than Sept. 13, 2013…. so i instead used the excel version but then bir refused to accept the amended itr…told me to use the how’s this?

  2. “Those who shall file a “No Payment” Return” — This cannot be done if a taxpayer is filing a 1701 with No Payment since the eBIRForms is still under construction. The taxpayer will still have to head at the RDO and submit the printed 1701 eBIRForm. I think they should not require taxpayers to electronically submit or file all tax returns if there are tax forms that are still unavailable to be used for online submission.
