BIR tells online sellers
to register, pay taxes

Online sellers should register their business activities with the Bureau of Internal Revenue and settle their taxes not later than July 31.

BIR issued Memorandum Circular 60-2020 on June 10 “to give notice to all persons doing business and earning income in any manner or form, specifically those who are into digital transactions through the use of any electronic platforms and media, and other digital means, to ensure that their businesses are registered pursuant to the provisions of Section 236 of the Tax Code, as amended, and that they are tax compliant.”

These shall include not only partner sellers or merchants, but also other stakeholders involved such as the payment getaways, delivery channels, internet service providers, and other facilitators, the BIR added.
