Electronic BIR Forms (eBIRForms) are Now Available

Not so long ago after the release of the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) Interactive Forms, now, the BIR released the Electronic BIR Forms (eBIRForms).  The roll out was made last October 16, 2012.   What are eBIR Forms?

The Electronic Bureau of Internal Revenue Forms (eBIRForms) Package is developed primarily to provide taxpayers with accessible and convenient service through easy preparation.  eBIRForms is an alternative mode of preparing tax returns which deviates from the conventional manual process of filling up tax returns on pre-printed forms that are highly susceptible to human error.  The package allows the taxpayers to accomplish or fill up the forms offline. Taxpayers can directly encode data, validate, edit, save, delete, view and print their tax returns.  The package has automatic computations and has the capability to validate information inputted by the taxpayers.

Among others, the benefits of using the eBIRForms are:

 Saves time because of automatic computations and auto-populated fields
 Easy to use
 Lessens human errors because of the validation feature
 Available even to those without consistent internet connection
 Captures taxpayer data

The eBIRForms press release was made first via BIR Monitor, which can be accessed here.  The eBIRForms application covers Thirty-one (31) BIR Forms comprised of 3 Income Tax Returns; 5 Excise Tax Forms; 2 VAT Forms; 10 Withholding Tax Forms; 2 Documentary Stamp Tax Forms; 4 Percentage Tax Forms; 4 ONETT Forms and 1 Payment form which are enumerated below.  These forms are for use by non-eFPS taxpayers.
