On July 25th, 2016, the Panamanian Tax Authority, Direccin General de Ingresos (DGI), implemented a new platform to improve the process related to tax payments in Panama.
The E-Tax 2.0 is an online tax system, which was approved by Resolution 201-3050 of June 22nd, 2016, in order to provide greater efficiency in the operations carried out by DGI.
The idea of launching E-Tax 2.0 was born by the need to adapt DGI to the technological advances and to ease the tax-related process for users and taxpayers, by introducing a total renovation of the tax system.
The access to E-Tax 2.0 is through the web page of DGI: dgi.mef.gob.pa, and then accessing the link "DG en lnea". Users and taxpayers will be able to present tax statements, obtain good standing certificates, non-taxpayer certificates, make queries, track procedures and others by accessing the online system.
Among the improvements of E-Tax 2.0 is the compatibility with multiple browsers including Safari, Opera, and Mozilla Firefox that were not available through the previous system.
Users and taxpayers hope that the E-Tax 2.0 system becomes an effective tool for presentation and tracking of processes before the tax authority of Panama.
