BIR Reminds Taxpayers: ITR Filing Deadline is on April 15
ROXAS CITY, Capiz (Apr 4) -- Taxpayers are reminded of their obligations to file their income tax returns and pay what is due to the government.
Capiz Bureau of Internal Revenue District Officer Gil Tabanda called on those who have not yet filed their income tax returns or paid their taxes to the government to comply with said obligation on or before April 15.
Tabanda said that to intensify their advocacy campaign, they will be using the mobile public address system or “rikoreda” to reach more Capiceños aside from their municipal-based door-to-door information activities.
He said that tax collection agents in the different municipalities here will likewise conduct in their respective areas tax forum or briefing to further inform the public on the importance of the payment of exact taxes on time.
Tabanda also revealed that they will be establishing two Tax Tulungan Centers or Help Desks at the Gaisano City mall here and at the Development Bank of the Philippines to assist taxpayers.
He explained that the Tulungan center at the mall will assist taxpayers and receive the income tax returns of those who have no remaining tax payables already.
To avoid the rush hour, Tabanda encourages the public to file earlier their ITR and pay the necessary revenue due to the government.
