The Bureau of Internal Revenue issued a tax advisory guidance item in late January 2019, announcing that the deadline for submission of the alphabetical list of employees or payees from whom taxes were withheld (the “alphalist”) as part of the filing of the annual information return has been extended to 15 February 2019. The original due date for filing the alphalist was 31 January 2019.
The deadline was extended because of a delay in the availability of the enhanced “data entry and validation module” that incorporates changes under tax reform legislative measures and also addresses certain technical problems considering the volume of taxpayers using the updated module.
