Income Tax Return online reception begins

Written by Cindy Moreno

The General Directorate of Internal Taxes (DGI) of the Ministry of Finance enabled the Online Income Tax Return (ISR) tool, corresponding to the fiscal year 2020. This process can be carried out through the online modality.

The modality is available for individuals and legal entities, in the Online Services section of the DGII.

The institution indicated that last year the information was submitted by more than 32,000 income withholding agents, which makes it possible to establish the taxable income subject to withholding that must be incorporated to each return, and submitted online.

The tax administration received 573,000 returns, which resulted in a collection as of April 30, 2020 of $468.0 million.

Taxpayers, who do not yet have a password to access the application, can register digitally, in the DGII Online Services section of the Ministry of Finance's website, in the options Online Registration and Obtaining a Password, for first-time filers.

In 2019, this tax represented the second largest source of income for the State, with a total of $1,933.4 million. Through withholdings, $980 million came to the Treasury, through declarations an amount of $471.4 million, and through payment on account $482 million.

As for income tax refunds, the tax administration expects to return an amount of around $34 million. Taxpayers who are entitled to a refund will be programmed according to the date of filing, taking into account that the return does not present any inconsistency.

The deadline to file and pay the return is April 30 and it is important to remember that the ISR filing is only through the digital system, which brings important benefits to the taxpayer:

It reflects accurate income and ISR withholding information reported by withholding agents on behalf of the taxpayer.

It indicates whether or not the taxpayer is obliged to file a tax return.

It allows 7/24 access availability.

It avoids queues and waiting, since it is not necessary to visit the offices of the Ministry of Finance.

It allows the printing of the payment order with NPE, avoiding inconsistencies and inaccuracies in the amount.

For inquiries, the General Directorate of Internal Taxes offers taxpayers the call center 2237-3444 or the e-mails This email address is being protected from spambots.
