  1. Hello, Ms. Lyza! Can you please give an example on what date to put for the Return Period for Form 2551Q. This will be my first time paying online for my taxes and I badly need some information. Looking forward to your reply. Thank you!

  2. Hi Lyza. I’m an individual tax payer and have no business. I did try to use the DBP tax online payment using my credit card but I didn’t get a confirmation, nor a text or email for the payment. Apparently it has been deducted to my credit card account. What to do?

    1. Try communicating with DBP if they can provide you with a receipt. You can also try to screenshot your credit if the BIR accepts it.

    1. Some BIR offices will need you to present your payment as well as your returns to their office. You can call the BIR office in your town on what’s their procedure.
