With the 2012/2013 financial year coming to a close, Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) is reminding all employers that the single Employer’s Annual Return (S02) becomes due on March 31, 2013. In an effort to assist in the filing process and to promote online filing of the S02, a cross agency compliance team from TAJ, National Housing Trust, National Insurance Scheme and the HEART Trust NTA is collaborating to provide guidance and support to employers across the island. This initiative is being supported by the TAJ’s annual taxpayer assistance programme, which is being conducted to support small business operators.

With the convenient option of filing the S02 online, via the tax payment portal www.jamaicataxonline. gov.jm, the Government of Jamaica has taken the lead by advising its Ministries, Departments and Agencies to file their Employer’s Annual Return using the online platform. Employers, particularly those with more than forty (40) persons on their payroll, are also encouraged to use the online method.

In addition to filing online, employers have other options for submitting the new S02 return:

  •  In-line by visiting any TAJ or NHT location.
  • CD (ASCII format)


The S02 form is available at all TAJ, NIS and NHT offices as well as electronically on the websites of the various agencies, www.jamaicatax.gov.jm, www.nht.gov.jm and www.mlss.gov.jm.

The Employers Annual Return (S02) replaces several forms and allows employers to file a single return at any Tax Office or NHT branch on the consolidated March 31 due date, thereby allowing them to use ONE FORM, ONE PLACE, ONE DATE. It was introduced in January 2012 and will benefit employers as it is:

  • More convenient.
  •  Saves time and money.
  •  Less paperwork.


To get additional information about preparing and filing the Employer’s Annual Return to meet the March 31 due date, employers may contact the TAJ & NHT Customer Care Centres at 1-888-TAX-HELP (829-4357), 1-888-CALL-NHT (225-5648), email queries to taxhelp@taj.gov.jm.
