More and more people are using Online Services to complete their personal tax return – the number has been rising over the past few years and stood at 43 per cent in 2018.
Once a person is registered, 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 deadline, those who have not yet made the switch are being encouraged to sign up for the convenient, secure and environmentally-friendly service.
Treasury Minister Alfred Cannan MHK said:
‘Submitting personal tax returns online is becoming the norm across the Island and I am delighted at the increase in uptake over recent years. As well as being more convenient for the individual, it helps government operate more efficiently by reducing the need for paper documents, telephone calls and correspondence.’
Visit gov.im/onlineservices 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

The Income Tax Division continues to provide a professional service for those who do not have internet access or prefer to send in paper copies of their return forms.
