One Day to Income Tax Filing Deadline

With one (1) day to go before the March 25 extended deadline to file Final Income Tax Returns for year of assessment 2016 and Estimated Returns for year of assessment 2017, Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) is reminding Business Owners, Self-Employed persons, Partnerships, Companies and Employed Individuals with other sources of income or multiple employment, that there is still an opportunity to avoid the $5000 monthly penalty charged for late returns. 

Income Tax Filers can avoid the expected higher than normal last minute rush, by filing online via the TAJ Tax Portal at www.jamaicatax.gov.jm or by making use of Saturday opening on March 25 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm at select tax offices island wide at the following locations:

  • Constant Spring
  • Montego Bay
  • Spanish Town
  • May Pen
  • Mandeville
  • Savanna-la-mar
  • St. Ann’s Bay

 The Portmore Tax Office will continue its regular Saturday opening.

Persons will also be able to avail themselves of the special tax support sessions at these tax offices. Here, TAJ representatives will assist persons with the preparation of their tax returns, to include providing guidance on completing the revised Income Tax forms. Additional support will also be available to help persons to file online using the Revenue Administration Information System (RAiS) at the designated eTaxSpots.

Taxpayers who wish to make the most of the free service are being asked to take with them all business related documents, including their Taxpayer Registration Number (TRN), bank statements, purchase invoices, receipts, sales records, utility bills, wage records and any other records that can be used to verify income and expenses.

For further information call the Tax Administration Customer Care Centre at 1-888-Tax-Help (1-888-829-4357) or visit the website www.jamaicatax.gov.jm
