  7. Hi, I am trying to fill in 1601 EQ. Our rental paid was 10,000.00 pesos a month. I think our ATC code is WC 100? We always pay 500 pesos a month on the previous 0605. Our tax base on the initial registration form was 240,000.00 pesos. On the form 1601EQ section 13, it is asking for TAX BASE (consolidated for the quarter, how do we determine that please? Thank You!


  8. Hi.
    My problem is how to amend the BIR FORM 1601 EQ 2nd quarter. I filed it on time, printed the form, acknowledgment form, payment confirmation but i cant find it when i look for it in efps. Then i reviewed my documents and found out that my tax period is incorrect. I input July 31, 2018 instead of June 30, 2018. What should I do?
    Thank you in advance.
