Following an assessment of the work being carried out at the Stamp Duty and Transfer Tax Office, located at 111 Harbour Street, Kingston, Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) wishes to advise the public that that Office will remain closed on Friday February 1, 2019.

3. Cross Stamping will be conducted from the 4th Floor Conference Room, KRSC, 1 – 3 King
4. Express documents e.g. Ministers license, court documents, powers of attorney, deed poll etc., will be processed at the Taxpayer Registration Centre (TRC), Shops 26 and 27 Kingston Mall.
