If you’ve been paying your taxes manually, you know how inconvenient it could be—not to mention that it’s risky because of the serious threat of COVID-19.

This makes the BIR online tax payment a much better alternative to manual payment. Rather than line up at the bank or a BIR Revenue District Office (RDO), you can just stay at home and pay your taxes using your bank account, credit or debit card, or mobile wallet.

Pay your taxes online to take advantage of its many benefits. Get started with this BIR online payment guide.

Why Should You Pay Your Taxes Online?

BIR Online Payment Guide - Why Pay Taxes Online

Online tax payment offers several advantages over manual payment. Here are the best reasons to pay your taxes online.

  • Safety – Paying online helps you avoid crowds and long lines, reducing your risk of exposure to the coronavirus. You can just pay your taxes in the safety of your home.
  • Convenience – BIR online payment facilities are available 24/7, so you can transact at your most convenient time, or during off-peak hours when the internet is faster.
  • Meeting the tax payment deadline – Because BIR online payment is more convenient and faster than manual payment, you’re likely to pay on time and avoid penalties for late tax payment.
  • Focusing on your business operations – Manual tax filing and payment is a tedious and time-consuming process. If you’re selling online, tax payment over the internet saves you time and allows you to focus more on growing your business. Now that the BIR wants online sellers to pay taxes[1], it will be easy for you to comply with tax regulations for online sellers in the Philippines, thanks to BIR online payment options.
