What is BIR Form 1702Q - Quarterly Income Tax?

BIR Form 1702Q — What is this? Firstly, know that there are different classifications of Income Taxes here in the Philippines, and the Income Tax form that you need to file varies on your Taxpayer type whether if you’re a Non-VAT or VAT filer — this step is very crucial for you to understand because there’s a difference on the forms that Non-VAT and VAT files for Income Tax Returns. But in this article, we’ll discuss with you BIR Form 1702Q and its functions.

So.. What is 1702Q and who needs to file it?

Who should file the BIR Form 1702Q, also known as the Quarterly Income Tax Return?

Every corporation, partnership, joint stock company, joint account, and association—except for foreign corporations not doing business in the Philippines and certain joint ventures focused on construction or energy—must file an accurate income tax return as required by law. This includes government-owned companies and agencies as well.

General professional partnerships, which are groups of professionals like lawyers or doctors working together, also need to file a tax return. This document should list their total income, deductions, and provide details such as the names, tax identification numbers, addresses, and shares of income for each partner.

Unlike other businesses, these professional partnerships do not need to file tax returns every quarter. Instead, they only need to file once a year using Form 1702, and include their Audited Financial Statements with that annual return.

By using 1702Q, BIR tracks the income collected coming from these entities.

This income tax return form is filed every quarter of the taxable year. The usual process in filing 1702Q are as follows:
