Update: Current version of eBIRForms Offline Package is v7.6.1. Click here to download this latest version.

In June 2015, the Offline eBIRForms Package v5.0 was made available to the public/taxpayers fixing certain bugs on submission from the previous versions.  And now, a new version, v6.0 is out!

The Electronic BIR Forms (eBIRForms) was developed primarily to provide taxpayers with an alternative mode of preparing and filing tax returns that is easier and more convenient. The use of eBIRForms by taxpayers will improve the BIR’s tax return data capture and storage thereby enhancing efficiency and accuracy in the filing of tax returns. Taxpayers and tax agents can fill up tax returns offline and submit it to the BIR through the Online eBIRForms System.

  9. This is the first time i cannot submit my return…it always say no internet connection, slow internet connection & overly restrictive firewall. What shld i do? I've been using this for a year now & it is only now that this is happening?

  10. Help I have updated to the 5.1 version but the submit button and the final copy button are inactive, what do I do? And how can I create a user in the ebirsystem if its down? I would also like to know if I was supposed to send emails to confirm that I filed my taxes?

  11. Hi, is the 2551M form fillable? In my end, number 14-15 questions are not displaying in the eBIRForms software. I'm using the latest by the way, and his was a problem for me from earlier versions. I can only submit the 1701Q because it has all the fields needed.

  12. Tina Bautista Click submit or final copy and then you will undergo a series of steps until you finally submit it through that medium. Usually, it will lead you to log-in to your eBIRForms online and generate the FRN from there. No need to manually send an e-mail. Of course, you will know that it's sucessful when you receive an e-mail confirmation that your return is successfully filed.

  13. This tax return submission channel is now unavailable and your submitted tax return will
    be disregarded. Please download the eBIRForms Package v.5 and follow the procedures per
    RMC No. 31-2015 to submit your tax returns < what does it means?i'd already downloaded the version 5 but still that message appears. Hope to hear from you soon
