Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) Bataan is urging individuals who have not settled their estate taxes to avail of the extended amnesty offered by the government.
BIR Bataan Admin and HR Officer Gemo Espinosa said the extension of estate tax amnesty is until June this year. Originally the deadline was June 2021.
The BIR official said if the amnesty is availed, there is no need to pay the surcharge and penalty due to delay in estate tax payment.
He said the amnesty covered the estate of the deceased who died on or before December 31, 2017.
The BIR Bataan kicked off its tax collection campaign in the province on Friday.
Two motorcades were held in the province as well as a tax campaign program conducted at the BIR Bataan office at Galeria Victoria, Balanga City.
“So far through the able leadership of our RDO Merlyn Vicente, we have been achieving our target collections for the past years”, he said.
Discussed in the tax campaign program were newly introduced digitalized methods, online registration, open cases, and amnesty on estate taxes, among others. It was attended by businessmen and bookkeepers.
