La Hacienda, the revenue department of Puerto Rico, has announced another extension for the filing of informatives.  Revenue newsletter BI RI 20-05 extends the electronic filing deadline for the following informatives to March 31: 480.5, 480.6A, 480.6B, 480.6B.1, 480.6D, 480.6G, 4806SP, 480.6SP.2, 480.7, 480.7B, 480.7B.1, 480.7C, 480.7C.1, and 480.7E.  These forms are generally due by the end of February each year, but an initial extension for tax year 2019 forms was granted because the electronic filing system, SURI, was due to be updated towards the end of February 2020.  This new extension provides these forms will be considered timely if filed with la Hacienda by March 31, 2020.

The newsletter also provide some instructions for individual taxpayers on how they can file their taxes without having received informatives.  Informatives can only be issued to recipients after being first filed electronically with la Hacienda.
