Sales tax reports soon to be due electronically

The country’s tax collector has set June 1 as the date for fully electronic sales tax reports.

The reports that usually are due by the 15th of the month have been produced during the last few months on the EDDI-7 system that was supplied to taxpayers by the Dirección General de Tributación, the tax collector. The computer produced a document that contained a bar code. Taxpayers would take these to a bank and present the form with payment of the tax.

After June 1 banks will not accept the form, said Tributación. Instead, the form will be sent directly to the tax collecting agency via the Internet. Payment will then be made online, too, to the Tributación account at the various banks.

The agency of the Ministerio de Hacienda has been moving toward electronic reporting for the last year.
