Things to know
1. The revised BIR forms shall be used for filing of Income Tax Returns (ITRs) effective 2014 covering the taxable year ended December 31, 2013.
2. The requirement for entering centavos in the ITR has been eliminated. If the amount of centavos is 49 or less, drop down the centavos (e.g., P 100.49 = P 100.00). If the amount is 50 centavos or more, round off to the next peso (e.g., P 100.50 = P101.00).

a. Corporations, partnerships and other non-individuals are mandated to use the itemized deductions in the following cases:
a.1 Those exempt under the Tax Code, as amended [Section 30 and those exempted under Section 27(C)] and other special laws, with no other taxable income;
a.2 Those with income subject to special/preferential tax rates; and
a.3 Those with multiple income tax rates such as income subject to the tax rate under Section 27(A) and 28(A)(1) of the Tax Code, as amended, AND also with income subject to special/preferential tax rates.
