BIR Form 0619E Expanded Withholding Tax Filing and Payment

BIR Form 0619E is a monthly remittance form used to file and remit income taxes withheld from the income payees.

This form is similar to BIR Form 1601C in the sense that it is also used for withholding income taxes from income payees. The only difference between the two is that BIR Form 1601C is only used to withhold income taxes from your employees. Meanwhile, BIR Form 0619E is normally used for all income payees except employees.

In this guide, I’ll show you the proper way of accomplishing the BIR Form 0619E and paying (remitting) the tax dues to the BIR using GCash and PayMaya.

You can use the table of contents to navigate to the part you want to read.

And without a long introduction, let’s dive in.

Understanding the Withholding Process

The withholding process is a shifting of tax collection from the BIR to the withholding agent. In the withholding process, there are three parties involved. These parties are the withholding agent, the income payee, and the BIR itself.

Withholding Agent

The withholding agent (is a person) can be individual or non-individual. This person will withhold a portion of their income paid to the income payee. If you have a tax type of Withholding Tax (OTH) in your Certificate of Registration, then you’re a withholding agent.

Income Payee

The income payee can also be an individual or non-indiviual. This person receives his income from the withholding agent which is also the income payor, net of withholding tax. The income payee will record this withheld portion as a Prepaid Tax Asset in its book. This prepaid tax asset can be used later on by the income payee to reduce his income tax payable when filing his income tax return. The BIR Form 2307 is issued by the withholding agent as proof that a withholding process has transpired between the two parties.

Bureau of Internal Revenue

The withholding agent will record the withheld portion as an Expanded Withholding Tax Liability in his book. The withholding agent is responsible for remitting that withheld portion to the BIR. That will be the time to use the BIR Form 0619E.

In the process explained above, you notice that instead of the BIR collecting taxes, the withholding process is shifted to the withholding agent. This means additional workloads to us (withholding agents). And failure to do so will result in penalties.


Juan performs professional services to the private company. He is not an employee of the company but the company is required to withhold income tax from his income payment. The company pays him P30,000 per session.

In the problem above, Juan is the income payee and the private company is the withholding agent. Instead of the private company paying him the whole amount of P30,000, it will only pay him P29,400 (net of 2% withholding tax) accompanied by a BIR Form 2307 indicating the amount withheld which is P600 (2% x P30,000).

Juan will treat record this P600 as a prepaid tax asset in his book of accounts while the private company will record this amount as expanded withholding tax liability.

The private company will then remit this amount to the BIR before the deadline of filing and payment of the BIR Form 0619E.

BIR Form 0619E Deadline

The withholding tax remittance form shall be filed and the tax remitted on or before the tenth (10th) day following the month in which withholding was made. If the withholding was made on January 1, then the amount withheld shall be remitted on or before February 10 of the same year provided that BIR Form 0619E was properly filed and received by the BIR.

In other words, you’ll be filing the BIR Form 0619E on a monthly schedule. You’ll also pay or remit the withheld tax if any.

eFPS-filers will file and pay their BIR Form 0619E based on their respective groupings. Meanwhile, eBIRForms filer will uniformly follow the deadline above.

Wait for the application to load the BIR Form 0619E. It may take some time to load it. Sometimes, it will hang but don’t close the eBIRForms and wait for it.

Step 5: Fill Up the BIR Form 0619e

Using eBIRForms, you can easily fill up the BIR Form 0619E because some fields are already preloaded with your background information. This form has two pages. Don’t worry as this is not going to be difficult. Follow the guidance below for your reference.

Example: Let’s say you’re filing for January 2022.

1. For the Month Of

Choose January 2022 as an example.

2. Due Date

This is automatically determined by the eBIRForms based on the input in Item #1.

3. Amended Return?

Choose No if first time filing and Yes if this is for amendment.

4. Any WithheldTaxes?

If you have expanded withholding tax to remit to the BIR, select Yes. If you’re filing a zero-payment return or just for compliance, select No. If you select Yes, you must fill up Item #14 of the BIR Form 0619E. This is particularly the amount of tax you’ll remit. If you select No, the said item number will be greyed out and disabled.

5 – 11 and 13 No Need to Fillup

There’s no need to put anything from Item #5 to #11. eBIRForms will do this for you.

12. Category of Withholding Agent

If you are not a government corporation or agency, select Private. You don’t even have to think about it. I also presumed that you (the one reading this article) are a private organization.

14. Amount of Remittance

If you selected Yes in Item #4, put the amount of remittance here. Otherwise, proceed to the next step.

Step 6: Validate the BIR Form 0619e

After you supplied all the necessary information, click the validate button. The eBIRForms will now validate if there is missing information.

Click Validate
Click Validate

If there is no error, the popup will appear saying validation successful. Click OK to close the popup.

Make sure that your BIR Form 0619E is properly filled up. Double-check the data and make sure they are correct and accurate to avoid issues in the future.

Validating the BIR Form 0619E does NOT mean all the data you inputted is correct and does match with the BIR database. It only means that the fields have values. But eBIRForms will not check whether those values are correct or not.

For example, you can input a fictional address, TIN, or even put a wrong date. With all of these, it will still say validation successful. But in reality, these are all wrong. So a final reminder is that you check the information you supplied and correct them if they are wrong. You can click the edit button to modify the form.

Step 7: Submit the the BIR Form 0619E

Before you submit the BIR Form 0619E, make sure you have a stable internet connection. Also, make sure that you have entered an active and valid email address. BIR will send you a notification to your email once they received your eBIRForms submission.

Now that you’re sure of the information you supplied. It’s time to click the Submit / Final Copy button to submit online.

A popup will appear. Click ok to proceed with the submission. On the next page, you need to agree to the terms and conditions of the eBIRForms. Click ok to continue.

Wait for the process to complete. You’ll receive a popup message saying Submission Successful just like below.
