Tax News | Reduction of advance income tax payments – Modification of income and foreign exchange settlement deadlines

AFIP – Request for reduction of Income Tax Advances. Special procedure.

RG 5246/2022 establishes a special procedure applicable to requests for the option to reduce income tax advances, for taxpayers whose base amount for the calculation exceeds $ 50 million and request a reduction of more than 10% of the amount of the original advance payment. Both requirements must be met concurrently.

The filing must be made through AFIP’s web service with Fiscal Code in the section “Digital Filings”, selecting the procedure “Income Tax Advance Payment Reduction Request – Special Procedure”, at least 60 days prior to the expiration of the last advance payment of the tax period of the option.

The presentation should include the following information:

  • The tax period of the advances.
  • The amount of the new projected base, attaching the documentation supporting such projection.

Likewise, the AFIP may request, through the taxpayer’s Electronic Taxpayer Address, the elements of assessment and documentation it deems necessary to consider whether the request is admissible.

The resolution period is 60 calendar days from the date of filing. In case it is approved, it will be registered in the “Tax Accounts” system, decreasing the totality of the advances of the fiscal period in question, which will take effect as from the first advance payment with maturity as from the date of approval of the procedure.
