More and more people are using Online Services for a range of reasons, including searching for jobs, paying rates and utility bills or applying for licences.
One of the most popular ways to use Online Services is to submit personal income tax returns. This is also the preferred method for the majority of Isle of Man residents with over 50 percent submitting tax returns in the 2019/2020 tax year this way.
The process is easy to navigate. Once you register, online tax forms are already populated with salary and state benefit details, removing the need to look up and provide the information manually.
As the countdown continues towards the 6 October 2021 deadline, those who have not yet made the switch are being encouraged to sign up for the convenient, secure and environmentally-friendly service.
Visit services.gov.im to find out how to get registered for the wide range of benefits it can bring. These include:
- submitting and viewing a tax return online;
- receiving instant confirmation of a tax return submission;
- reviewing assessments and balance details easily and securely;
