Through General Resolution No. 4,685, the use of the computer service “Digital Filings” implemented by General Resolution No. 4,503 and its complementary for the performance of certain procedures and formalities before this Federal Administration was made mandatory on an exceptional basis, even up to August 31, 2021.

This regulation was issued considering the difficulty for taxpayers and responsible parties to go to the Federal Administration offices due to the preventive and mandatory isolation and social distancing measures ordered by the National Executive Power within the framework of the COVID-19 pandemic declared by the World Health Organization (WHO).
