BIR partners with DBP, MyEG PH for online tax payment

To expand its available payment channels, the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) has partnered with the Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP) & MyEG, a market leader in electronic solutions championing government services online automation, for the implementation of its new and improved online payment service allowing citizens to pay their BIR online tax payment via www.myeg.ph.

Paying taxes via MyEG’s BIR Tax ePayment is easy, convenient and hassle-free. All taxpayers need to do is to simply log in at www.myeg.ph and choose among the different BIR form series and tax type they need to pay, and they would be redirected immediately to the MyEG’s payment gateway where they could choose their preferred payment option. This entire process would only take less than a minute and payments are posted real-time.

Other BIR Philippine taxes that could be paid include withholding tax, value-added tax, percentage tax, documentary stamp tax, fringe benefit tax and corporate income tax.

Individuals and businesses now have an additional channel to settle their BIR tax requirements in one platform with various payment options such as GCash and credit/debit cards.

“This innovation is part of our third solution providers to explore ways so that taxpayers could file and pay their taxes while remaining in the safety and security of their homes or their offices,” said Lanee David, BIR deputy commissioner. “This effort is much appreciated, as it compliments BIR’s efforts to enhance our key services, electronic services, and offer the public different options to help them comply with their tax obligations online.”

“MyEG has been a leader in automating government services both here in the Philippines and in Malaysia,” said Ann Margaret Saldaña, MyEG Philippines chief executive officer. “Through this partnership with BIR and DBP, we are able to connect the taxpayers to our payment channels nationwide while we remain deeply committed in enabling government institutions to provide the ease of doing business so that citizens would have a more convenient and hassle-free way of paying their taxes online.”

The BIR Tax ePayment System was officially launched last Oct. 18, 2021 and was made possible in partnership with the BIR, DBP and IPAY MyEG Philippines Inc.
