                   2. Certification from the Philippine Consulate or Apostille, if the document
                       is executed abroad; or

          Provided, however, that in the absence of the abovementioned documents, the
          Commissioner may request for alternative documents, as may be deemed
          Within five (5) working days from the receipt of complete documents, the concerned
          RDO shall either endorse the APF for payment of the estate amnesty tax with the
          Authorized Agent Banks (AABs), Revenue Collection Officers (RCOs), or authorized
           tax software provider, or shall notify the taxpayer in case there is any deficiency in
           the application. Only the duly endorsed APF shall be presented to and received by       
           the AAB, RCO or authorized tax software provider.

           Proof of settlement of the estate, whether judicial or extra-judicial, need not
           accompany the ETAR if it is not yet available at the time of its filing and payment of
           taxes, but no electronic Certificate Authorizing Registration (eCAR) shall be issued
           unless such proof is presented and submitted to the concerned RDO.
           After payment, the duly accomplished and sworn ETAR and APF with proof of 
           payment, together with the complete documentary requirements, shall be
           immediately submitted to the concerned RDO in triplicate copies. Failure to submit
           the same until June 15, 2025 is tantamount to non-availment of the Estate Tax
           Amnesty and any payment made may be applied against the total regular estate tax
           due inclusive of penalties.

           Installment payment shall be allowed within two (2) years from the statutory, date of
           its payment without civil penalty and interest.”
           ”Section 13. Issuance of Electronic Certificate Authorizing Registration (eCAR).
          – One (1) eCAR shall be issued per real property, including the improvements, if
           any, covered by Original Certificate of Title/Transfer Certificate of
           Title/Condominium Certificate of Title or Tax Declaration for untitled properties.

           For personal properties included in the estate, a separate eCAR shall be issued.
           The eCAR shall only be issued upon submission of the proof of estate settlement
            [e.g. Extra-Judicial Settlement of Estate (EJS), Copy of Court Order]. In the event
            that these documents include properties not indicated in the ETAR filed, the
             particular properties shall likewise be excluded from the eCAR, unless additional
             estate tax amnesty payment shall be made if the submission is within the amnesty
             period. Otherwise, the additional estate tax to be paid for the additional properties
             indicated in the EJS or Court Order shall be subject to applicable estate tax rate
             including interests and penalties.”

             “Section 16. Immunities and Privileges of Availing Estate Tax Amnesty. – Estates
             covered by Estate Tax Amnesty, which have fully complied with all the conditions set
             forth hereof, including the payment of estate tax amnesty, shall be immune from the
             payment of all estate taxes as well as any increments and additions thereto, arising
             from the failure to pay any and all estate taxes for the period ending May 31, 2022
             and prior years, and from all appurtenant civil, criminal and administrative cases,
             and penalties under the 1997 Tax Code, as amended.”

          Except for the amendments made in Section 2 of the RR, the provisions of existing revenue issuances to implement and to clarify the Estate Tax Amnesty under RA No. 11213, as amended by RA No. 11569, shall continue to apply to the extension of the period of its availment under the present RA No. 11956. Thus, all reference to RA No. 11213, as amended by RA No. 11569, on those revenue issuances shall also apply to RA No. 11956.
