This action responds to Guatemala’s state of emergency and the provisions of public calamity issued by the President, which apply from 18 March to 31 March 2020.
The tax authorities also clarified that the due dates for filing tax returns remain in effect, which means that no extension or exemption of any kind currently applies for these purposes
Additionally, the tax authorities announced that documents, hearing requests or administrative appeals may be submitted in the offices of the Special Medium Taxpayers Management in charge of receiving those documents.
