On January 31, 2018, Finance Secretary Carlos G. Dominguez issued RR No. 7-2018 which restored the provision on Notice of Informal Conference as a due process requirement in the issuance of a deficiency tax assessment. RR No. 7-2018 was published in the Manila Bulletin on February 1, 2018 and took effect on February 16, 2018.
The Notice of Informal Conference is a written statement issued by the BIR informing the taxpayer of the discrepancies in the taxpayer’s tax payments for the purpose of conducting an informal conference wherein the taxpayer will be given an opportunity to present his side of the case.
