This relief may not be available for all taxpayers—including certain “large taxpayers” unless operating in certain industry sectors (such as airlines, tourism, construction, entertainment, among others)—those large taxpayers that are excluded from this relief but that are unable to comply with the advance payment rules are directed to contact the DGII for a case-by-case exemption (partial or total).
  • An extension of the deadline for payment arrangements due for the months of April, May, and June 2020, with simultaneous application of a 50% discount on such payment arrangements (this relief is not available with regard to the VAT return for February 2020 or the corporate income tax return for taxpayers with a 31 December year-end.
