Friday is the last day to file sales taxes

June 11, 2012

The June 15 deadline for taxpayers to declare sales taxes is quickly approaching, and taxpayers should remember they can only file online.

Weeks ago, the Tax Administration announced the elimination of paper forms as well as the implementation of Internet technology for the declaration and payment of sales tax.

Payments may be also made online at the websites of banks where this service is available, or in person at bank offices, via a taxpayer identification number.

Tax Administration Director Carlos Vargas said the changes would result in government savings, and the digital declaration would reduce errors. “It also enables better control,” he said.

To avoid compatibility issues with the banking system, taxpayers must use EDDI-7 software provided by the Tax Administration, available only for Windows-based computers.
