Form RD-108/ 108B is a tax return filed annually and is used to pay the 1% earnings tax on the net profits of a business. The return is due by April 15 of each year and is required even if there is a loss. If you file income taxes on a fiscal year basis, the return is due 105 days from the end of your fiscal year.
Extensions of time to file may be requested by submitting Form RD-111. Extension requests are granted to provide an additional six months to file. They are not an extension of time to pay the tax due. A payment of at least 90% of the tax due must be submitted with Form RD-111 to avoid penalty and interest. This request is separate from an extension request submitted to the IRS for federal income tax purposes and should be sent directly to the Revenue Division. The IRS does not send this information to municipalities.
