Filing the Act 60 Annual Report - Relocate to Puerto Rico with Act 60, 20, 22

Blog: Articles to Help You Navigate Puerto Rico

If you hold an Act 20, 22, or 60 decree—some of Puerto Rico’s many tax incentive decrees—you will be required to file an annual report to the Department of Economic Development and Commerce (DDEC). The report is necessary to maintain compliance and remain in good standing with the DDEC. Note that this report is different from the annual LLC report—you will need to file both every year.

When to File the Report

The annual Act 60 report is due within 30 days of your income tax due date. Note that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, income tax due dates for 2020 have been pushed back—for most, taxes are now due July 15, 2020. If you have requested an extension for your income taxes, you will have until November 15, 2020, to file this year’s annual report.

Report Fee and Requirements

Like with the annual LLC report, Act 20, 22, and 60 decree holders are required to submit a payment along with their file. Previously, all decrees incurred an annual fee of $300, but the fee for Act 22 and Act 60 Individual Resident Investor decree holders was increased in 2020 to $5000. All grantees must provide evidence that they complied with the conditions laid out in their respective grant during the tax year for which they are filing the report.
