A member-borrower has an option to file and pay directly the corresponding tax/es prior to processing by the HDMF. The HDMF shall also ensure the submission of complete documents and remittance of correct taxes based on the evaluation of the transactions/documents filed by their memberborrowers. A special lane shall be provided in every frontline services of the BIR for HDMF transactions every Tuesday and Thursday. The Revenue District Office (RDO) concerned shall allow the HDMF to secure the eCAR on behalf of its member-borrowers, following existing BIR policies, guidelines and procedures. The provisions of Withholding Tax must also be complied with, specifically Section 2.57.4 of Revenue Regulation No. 2-98, as amended, where the time of withholding is when paid or payable, whichever is earlier. Compromise penalties under RMO Nos. 19-2007 or 7-2015, whichever is applicable, and other computation of penalties, if any, shall be in compliance with Section 255 Title X of the Tax Code, as amended. In case of systems downtime and unavailability of the eBIRForms System during deadlines, HDMF may file the returns (printed from the eBIRForms Offline Package) manually to the RDO where the real property is located. However, once the system is available, HDMF is still required to submit electronically the contents of their manually-filed returns within ten (10) days from the date of issuance of announcement of the systems availability thru the BIR website.
