Third Quarter Tax Payments due September 16

Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) is advising business persons that the due date for Statutory Deductions and Income Tax Payments are due on the 14th and 15th respectively. However, because these dates fall on the weekend, the due date is adjusted to Monday September 16, 2019 for the following:

  • Estimated Corporate Income Tax (3rd quarter)

Business persons are being encouraged to use our online payment option as the TAJ’s online service accommodates the filing and payment of all major tax types, including Income Tax, Property Tax, General Consumption Tax and Payroll Taxes. Persons may log on to the Tax Portal at from the convenience of their home or office and at any time, to pay the taxes now due, using a valid credit card.

Persons with a Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS) Account, may also opt to use the Automated Direct Deposit facility available on the TAJ Website, using the Automatic Clearing House (ACH).  This option allows users to make payment from their bank account directly to TAJ's bank account up to a maximum of $99,999,999.00
