REVENUE MEMORANDUM ORDER NO. 7-2015 issued on March 23, 2015 prescribes and implements the revised consolidated Schedule of Compromise Penalties for Violations of the National Internal Revenue Code. The internal revenue officers concerned shall apply the revised Schedule of Compromise Penalties embodied in Annex “A” of the Order to ensure uniformity of action. Cases involving fraud shall be referred to the concerned Division having jurisdiction over the case, for the institution of the corresponding criminal action. In no case shall the compromise penalty differ in amount from those specified in the aforementioned Schedule, except when duly approved by the Commissioner or concerned Deputy Commissioner, or in proper cases, by the Regional Directors. Although all amounts of compromise penalties incident to violations shall be itemized in the assessment notice and/or demand letter, the same should not form part of assessment notice that reflects deficiency basic tax, surcharge and interest but should appear in a separate assessment notice/demand letter as the amount suggested to the taxpayer to pay in lieu of criminal prosecution. If paid, the compromise penalties shall be collected and accounted for under the usual procedures, as internal revenue collection. Since compromise penalties are only amounts suggested in settlement of criminal liability, and may not therefore be imposed or exacted on the taxpayer, the violation shall be referred to the appropriate office for criminal action in the event that a taxpayer refuses to pay the suggested compromise penalty. The schedule of compromise penalties herein prescribed shall not prevent the Commissioner or his duly authorized representative from accepting a compromise amount higher than what is provided hereof. A compromise offer lower than the prescribed amount may be accepted after approval by the Commissioner of Internal Revenue or the concerned Deputy Commissioner/Assistant Commissioner/Regional Director.
