Tax filing and payment platform Taxumo said it is giving Filipino medical professionals a free two-month subscription to allow the country’s frontliners to focus on helping affected communities cope with Covid-19.
Recently, the Bureau of Internal Revenue announced that it will extend the deadline of filing of the annual income tax return for Filipino taxpayers to May 15 from April 15, 2020.
To help Filipino doctors and medical professionals with their tax obligations, Taxumo is now offering free use of its tax filing and payment service for two months.
To get this service, they only need to email firstname.lastname@example.org with a photo of their medical license, as a proof of their profession.
Taxumo has also reduced the prices of its annual subscription packages, allowing taxpayers to file their annual ITR online, as well as other tax obligations all year round, for as low as P700/month for the Professional plan (billed annually).
Taxumo subscribers need only pay P1,500 per month (saving them 20% of the usual price) for its annual Micro Business plan (currently at P1,888/month).
Likewise, they can save more than P7,000 a year for the annual Small & Medium Business plan (for taxpayers with VAT).
“We at Taxumo know how this pandemic is taking its toll on our livelihoods and communities. As business owners ourselves, we realize that even with these safety measures, there will be an undeniable impact on your businesses,” said Taxumo CEO EJ Arboleda. “We unite with the taxpaying Filipino community and believe that together, we can surpass the challenges we are currently facing.”
