Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) is reminding business persons that GCT Returns for the month of July are due on Friday August 31, 2018. This is in keeping with the requirement for registered GCT taxpayers to make their monthly GCT Returns and payments on the last working day of the month, after the end of the taxable period.
Taxpayers are therefore reminded that GCT Returns filed and paid after the last working day of the month, will be considered late and the necessary penalties and interest charges applied.
Additionally, all business persons registered to collect GCT are reminded that they arenow required to file GCT returns online via Tax Administration Jamaica’s online portal at ww.jamaicatax.gov.jm. This means that GCT Returns for all categories of business persons MUST be filed using TAJ’s online facility, as these Returns will not be accepted at Tax Offices.
Business persons are reminded that they can still get support to file GCT returns online, as the Tax Authority continues to provide training support assisting taxpayers to meet the online filing requirement. Taxpayers can therefore, make arrangements for eOneon-One sessions to train their staff or request an Advisory Visit at their business location to get assistance on the procedure to efile returns. eFiling facilities are also available at several Tax Offices to accommodate taxpayers filing GCT and other Tax Returns online, with assistance from TAJ staff.
For further information persons may call the Tax Administration Customer Care Centre at 1-888-Tax-Help (1-888-829-4357) or visit the website www.jamaicatax.gov.jm.
