Editor's Comment: Normally, when they talk of a "moratorium" that means people are still going to have to pay the tax they owe, but any late fees or penalties will be waived. As predicted, there was a last minute rush in the end of April when the deadline approached, and many people scrambled to make the payment, stood in line for hours, fought through the confusion and the frustration - only to have this extension granted after the deadline had passed. Actually, this is a normal evolution for Panama and it happens exactly like this anytime there's a new requirement or procedure.
