[ BIR REVENUE MEMORANDUM ORDER NO. 35-91, October 17, 1991 ]


RMO Nos. 19-91 and 29-91 dated June 10, 1991 and September 11, 1991 respectively, are hereby amended to include the following additional guidelines on the receipt of tax returns and payment of tax due in checks specifically, thru the ranks under the NPCS.

A. BIR Form No. 2551 - Percentage Tax Return (To be Accomplished by Persons Subject to 2% Tax Under Sec. 122 of NIRC), revised October, 1991 (Annex A*) shall be included among the tax returns to be filed with and paid directly to the accredited banks in places covered by payment thru the Banks System under the NPCS.

The aforesaid form was also revised to include spaces for stick-on label and carbonized portion to facilitate validation of payment by banks.

B. Extension officers/tellering booths of accredited bank branches located in the BIR offices may accept tax returns from the following taxpayers:

Extension Office/Tellering
Booth Location
Covered Taxpayers
a. In the Revenue District
From taxpayers of the Office Revenue District Office (RDO) concerned only.
b. In the Regional Office
From taxpayers of the RDO housed in the Regional Office itself.
c. In the BIR National Office
From taxpayers of RDO No. 30 (North Q.C.) and 30-A (South Q.C.) only.

Aforesaid banks which shall accept tax returns from taxpayers of different RDOs shall prepare separate reports (Tax returns/ATAPs Batch Control Sheets (BCS) A/B) for each RDO concerned.

However, accredited bank branches and/or extension offices/tellering booths may accept ATAPs for payment of deficiency taxes from taxpayers of different RDOs since the law does not prescribe specific venue on payment of deficiency taxes.

C. Procedureds In accepting tax returns to be paid in checks after the accredited bank's clearing time, the following procedures shall be observed by the accredited bank branches:

1. Tax returns shall be stamped "RECEIVED" by the bank branch on the date they are actually accepted from the taxpayers.

2. The bank branch shall have the option to validate the tax returns on the same day they were received or on the next day depending on the bank's internal policy. However, tax returns to be validated on the next day must be stamped "LATE FOR CLEARING" to justify the late validation of the tax return.

3. Tax returns which were validated late shall be reported by the bank branch thru BCS-A on the date they were actually validated.

D. In case where taxpayer filing VAT return has no TIN yet (i.e. he is not included in the RDO's TIN masterlist and "bold" list), the guidelines prescribed below shall be followed by the offices concerned:

1. For Metro Manila taxpayers

a. The RDO concerned shall relay to RISSI thru the telephone using the hotline (Tel. No. 99-40-93 the taxpayer's particulars as follows:

a.1. Name and address
a.2. VAT member and payment made
a.3. Taxpayer Account Number (TAN)
a.4. Ser., Civil Status and Date of Birth
a.5. Trade name and address

b. RISSI shall generate immediately the TIN of the taxpayer and relay it to the RDO thru the telephone also.

c. Upon receipt of advise from RISSI of the taxpayer's TIN, the RDO shall print and issue the TIN card and stick-on labels to the taxpayer and instruct him to file his return in the accredited bank branch.

2. For taxpayers outside Metro Manila

a. Accredited bank branches outside Metro Manila may accept VAT return without stick-on label, provided that the said return has notation of the RDO concerned or his authorized representative that the taxpayer's "TIN is still in process" and a copy of the TIN application is attached on the VAT return.

Note: The RDO concerned shall require the taxpayer to accomplish the appropriate TIN application form in two (2) copies: the original copy to be forwarded to RISSI per RMO No. 23-91 and RMC No. 63-91 and the duplicate copy to be attached to the VAT return to be filed without the required label.

b. The VAT Division/RISSI shall stick the label on the original copy of VAT return upon processing/data entry of the said tax return. Thus, upon generation by RISSI of TIN card/stick-on labels of the taxpayer concerned, the VAT Division/RISSI shall withhold one label for attachment to the original VAT return filed without label prior to transmittal of the same to the RDO for issuance to the taxpayer.

E. Repealing Clause - This Order hereby repeals or amends accordingly all issuances or portions thereof inconsistent herewith.

F. Effectivity - This Order shall take effect immediately for RDOs participating in the pilot implementation of the NPCS.

Adopted: 17 Oct. 1991
