Is it possible to obtain an extension for payment of income tax?
The expat employee is under an obligation to file a tax return and submit relevant tax information with the tax authorities. Alternatively, the FIE, as the withholding agent, is obliged to submit a report and pay the withheld taxes within the specified period. The tax authority may grant an extension to a taxpayer or withholding agent who is unable to file a tax return or report on time. An extension of tax payment may also be offered to a taxpayer with "special difficulty" in paying taxes. The extension can only stretch as long as three months.
