Meeting tax deadlines take a considerable amount of time and resources to many business owners in Davao City.

  1. Failure to file any tax returns or payment of tax dues on the deadline or as required under the Tax Code;
  2. Unless authorized by the BIR Commissioner, filing a tax return to an unauthorized person other than the BIR Internal Revenue Officer;
  3. Failure to pay deficient taxes within the prescribed dates or that specified in the Notice of Assessment; or
  4. Partial or non-full payment of the tax amount by the taxpayer. 

Moreover, the Tax Code also prescribes a 20% interest rate for unpaid taxes calculated from the date specified to be paid until the taxpayer has paid the tax amount due.
