The tax relief measures recently implemented by the DGII include:

  • Extending the deadline for filing and paying obligations related to income tax and the “simplified tax regime” (RST) to 30 April 2020 or 29 May 2020 (depending on the type of tax)
  • Allowing taxpayers that owe additional tax after having filed their income tax returns, the ability to pay the tax liability in four installments (interest free)
  • Allowing installment payments of value added tax (VAT) owed for February 2020
  • Reducing by 50% the amount of any currently active installment payment arrangements, duplicating the previously agreed-upon deadlines, as well as the number of installments
  • Providing relief from penalties and interest for taxpayers with outstanding tax obligations
  • Ceasing temporarily to apply the corresponding rate from advanced pricing agreements (APAs) for the hospitality industry
