Dedicated sessions are being set up to help people who want to file their tax return online, but may not have the confidence to do so.
There are now just a few weeks to go until the 6 October 2023 deadline for the submission of personal income tax returns. Submitting online is the preferred method for the majority of Isle of Man residents with more than 60% now filing their annual tax return using Isle of Man Government’s Online Services.
To assist those yet to submit online, the Income Tax Division has teamed up with the Get Online Centre at the Welcome Centre in the Sea Terminal in Douglas.
Anyone wishing to find out more can book a sessionfor help getting started or, if they are already registered, general assistance with navigating the system and resetting forgotten passwords or other login details.
Sessions will take place on:
- Thursday 14 September 2023, 10am to midday and 2pm to4pm
- Thursday 28 September 2023, 10am to midday and 2pm to 4pm

Participants are encouraged to bring their own electronic equipment to use, such as laptops, tablets, iPads or smartphones, in order to become familiar with their equipment when navigating Online Services. If you do not own suitable equipment, there will be a limited number of iPads available.
