TAX RETURN DEADLINE NEARS - Income Tax Press Release
The 6 October 2012 deadline for submitting 2011/12 personal tax returns is now only a month away.
If the Income Tax Division has not received personal tax returns for the year ended 5 April 2012 by 6 October 2012, taxpayers will be charged a £100 penalty. If the return has still not been received by the Division by 6 April 2013, a further £200 penalty will be charged. Even if the penalties are paid, the tax return must still be submitted and people may be prosecuted for failing to do so.
Taxpayers are reminded that they can submit their tax return online. Anyone who is interested in doing so should register for Government Online Services and then follow the link to enrol for Income Tax Services as soon as possible and not leave it to the last few days before the return deadline. To register they should go to www.gov.im/onlineservices and select ‘Income Tax’ where a video guide to assist in completion of the registration and enrolment process can also be viewed.
From 17 September 2012 to 5 October 2012, a dedicated team of officers will be available at the Income Tax Division from 11.30 am to 2pm daily to assist people wishing to complete their tax return online.
Using Online Tax Services enables people to deal with their tax affairs from the comfort of their own home and avoid the potentially large queues at the Income Tax Division office, particularly in the final weeks before the deadline.
Alternatively returns can be put through the letterboxes at the front entrance to, or on the 2nd floor inside Government Office.
If anyone requires a duplicate tax return, then they should contact the Division as soon as possible in order that a return can be issued and returned before the deadline.
