Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) is reminding persons that the following payments are due today Thursday December 15, 2016:
- Estimated Income Tax (4th quarter)
- Self Employed Statutory Payments (4th quarter)
Taxpayers are advised to honour their tax obligations by making these payments on time, as TAJ has ramped up its compliance activities in relation to these payments. Failure to comply may result in interest and penalty charges, and other compliance actions.
Persons are being encouraged to use the online option, as the TAJ portal has been enhanced through the Revenue Administration Information System (RAiS) to facilitate the filing and payment of all major tax types, including Income Tax and Statutory Payments.
Individuals may visit the Tax Portal at www.jamaicatax.gov.jm from the convenience of their home or office, at any time, to pay taxes using a valid credit card.
Business persons are being reminded that tax payments may also be made at any of the 29 tax offices. Persons paying by cheque may do so using the electronic drop boxes located in main tax offices.
For further information persons may contact the Tax Administration’s Customer Care Centre at 1-888-Tax-Help (1-888-829-4357) toll-free or visit our website www.jamaicatax.gov.jm.
