Just when I am about to finish encoding in the data entry module of the BIR, a friend (thanks to him!) texted me just now that the deadline for the submission of the Alphalist is again extended from February 27, 2009 to March 31, 2009.
Now I could breathe but my fingers are already aching and I have ignored my daily routine in the office. I even hung up my phone so nobody could disturb me. As always, BIR is so slow in informing their withholding agents.
Delayed release of the implementing rules and regulations of the Tax Relief Law.
Delayed release of the data entry modules for withholding agents (just got a copy three days ago).
Delayed communication of the (first) deadline extension.
And now, a very last minute circular for the second extension of the deadline of submission of the Alphalist.
What else?!! Sheesh. And for the bureau, please don’t blame it on technical problems.
By the way, don’t let me explain about the f***ing Alphalist.
