This Circular is issued to clarify Section 4(3) of Revenue Regulations Nos. 6-2014 and RR 5-2015, mandating the use of eBIRForms and electronically filing "no payment returns". The following taxpayers may file manually "no payment returns" to the Revenue District Office (RDO) where registered using officially printed forms/photocopied or electronic/computer-generated returns:

2.       Employees deriving purely compensation income and the income tax of which has been withheld correctly showing tax due is equal to the tax withheld whether single or multiple employers (with two or more employers concurrently and successively at anytime during the taxable year);

The above-taxpayers are encouraged to use offline eBIRforms for ease and convenience in the preparation, validation, computation rules and efficiently check for completeness and correctness of taxpayer input. However, they are encouraged as much as possible to file their returns electronically to avoid the crowd and long lines.

It is further clarified that all business taxpayers with no payment returns mandated to use eBIRForms/EFPS must electronically file return.
