Extended Income Tax Filing Deadline Nears

With just one day to go before the extended March 25 Income Tax filing deadline, Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) is reminding taxpayers to file their Annual Income Tax Return for 2019 and to declare estimated income for 2020, along with payments ahead of the expected last minute rush both online and in the Tax Offices.

The Tax Authority is encouraging self-employed persons, employed persons with other sources of income, partnerships, companies and other corporate bodies to meet their filing and payment obligations.
 
Corporate Income Tax (CIT) filers are reminded that they MUST file their Returns electronically, via TAJ’s online portal at www.jamaicatax.gov.jm on or before the extend March 25 due date. This means corporate bodies, organizations such as
Partnerships, Trusts, Estates, Building Societies, Life Assurances as well as registered Charities, are required to file their Income Tax Returns and supporting documents online. Individuals are being given the option to file online or at a tax office. Since December 2019, approximately 38,000 Returns have been filed electronically across all Income Tax Types being filed this Tax Season.

TAJ is appealing to taxpayers of the importance of paying their fair share to ensure the economic stability of Jamaica, and especially at this time in which the revenue will be used in large part, to fund the fight against the Corona Virus in the country.

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