Does BIR still accept manual filing of tax returns? When to file taxes manually?
Yes. However, it is not encouraged and there are certain limitations that should be followed. As BIR encourages the use of digital, the agency is heavily calling all taxpayers to file using either eBIR or eFPS to make tax returns filing more efficient. Hence, manual filing is only advisable for senior citizens, PWD, or due to technical errors of eFPS or eBIR. There are multiple ways to file your taxes. Your mode of filing will depend on the category you fall under as a taxpayer.
