deferment of payment by Philippine Appliance Corp. (PHILACOR) of national taxes due to a
labor strike - Under Sections 248(A)(1) and (3) and 249, both of the Tax Code of 1997, the
imposition of the surcharge and interest on delinquency is mandatory. However, since Philacor
notified its failure to file the returns and pay the taxes thereon within the prescribed period due
to the labor strike, its request for waiver of the payment of surcharge and penalty is granted but
not to the payment of interest imposed under Sec. 249 of the Tax Code of 1997, pursuant to
Section 204 of the same Code which grants the Commissioner the authority to abate or cancel a
tax liability. (BIR Ruling No. 001-2001 dated January 8, 2001)
