DAT Files play a huge role in filing tax returns to the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR). These are necessary attachments that have to be sent to the agency through email in order to complete the whole process of tax filing.
Patience is a requirement for anyone filing their taxes. You’ll encounter unexpected lag time, complicated tax forms and the risk of making an error during data entry. This just prolongs the application process and delays the time it takes for you to focus on your business.
This article will discuss the struggles that modern day taxpayers are experiencing when it comes to generating DAT files and explain how JuanTax can help you solve these dilemmas.
The Burden in Generating DAT Files
In our recent article review about eBIRForms, we have mentioned the struggles that taxpayers encounter whenever they file tax returns using the system. Its incompatibilities with other operating systems, manual data entry and so on.
But that is just for tax forms — as you know, there are also other applications that are used in generating DAT files which are required to be sent to the BIR. These are known as Alphalist Data Entry and Relief Data Entry. The worst part is that it is the same manual process as eBIRForms, whereas users need to do another set of manual encoding for the attachment, then it needs to go to yet another application where the DAT file needs to be validated.
Hang in there, don’t get discouraged! Here at JuanTax, we understand the burden that you are experiencing just to get these DAT files submitted on time. Let us make that easier for you! File your QAP, SAWT and SLSP with us. JuanTax serves as an alternative for applications such as Alphalist Data Entry and eBIRForms. Generate your DAT files — minus the hassle!
