Tax Administration Jamaica, TAJ, is reminding Income Tax filers that there is still time to get support ahead of the March 15 deadline to file their returns.
The TAJ says just over a week is left before Annual Income Tax Returns for 2022 and Estimated Returns for 2023 are due.
The TAJ says micro, small and medium business persons in particular are being encouraged to take advantage of the Special Taxpayer Assistance Programme, STAP.
The programme is being held island wide.
The Tax Administration says they will be able to get the support they need to prepare their business documentation for filing, as well as getting registered to electronically file their Returns ahead of the rush, as all Returns MUST be filed online as required by law.
The STAP schedule is available at www.jamaicatax.gov.jm in the Income Tax Hub, with the dates and times of the support sessions that are being offered primarily at Tax Offices across the island.
Business persons are advised to take with them all business related documents.
This includes their Taxpayer Registration Number, TRN, bank statements, purchase invoices, receipts, sales records, utility bills, wage records and any other documentation that can be used to verify income and expenses to maximise on the support being given.
Persons may also visit the How To section at www.jamaicatax.gov.jm for user-friendly instructions on how to file online, as well as avail themselves of forms, tutorials, media advisories and more to empower taxpayers to meet their obligations.
