Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) | 2014-03-21 00:00:00

With the 2013/2014 fiscal year coming to a close, Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) is reminding business persons that their Employer’s Annual Return (S02) becomes due on March 31 and that they must file the return online, once they have more than 20 employees.

The mandatory e-filing of the S02 took effect on March 1 of this year, following an announcement by TAJ in October 2013. As a result employers with more than twenty employees on their payroll are now required to file their Employer’s Annual Return online via the Jamaica Tax Portal

It should be noted that manual S02 returns for this group will not be accepted. However, Taxpayer Education Officers will be on hand at each of the seven  Revenue Service Centres of King Street, Constant Spring, Spanish Town, May Pen, Mandeville, St. Ann’s Bay and Montego Bay to offer on-the-spot assistance to employers to register to file online and to guide them in filing the return electronically. This service will also be available at NHT Branch offices in May Pen, Mandeville, Ocho Rios and Spanish Town and at the head office in Kingston.

Additionally, TAJ in partnership with the National Housing Trust (NHT) is continuing with its programme to provide support to employers across the island, through sensitisation sessions and one-on-one guidance on how to file online. The programme is being conducted to support primarily small business operators, as well as accountants representing multiple clients. To access this programme, persons may contact the TAJ or NHT to schedule an appointment. Employers may also get assistance to register and file online by contacting the TAJ or NHT Customer Care Centres at 1-888-TAX-HELP (829-4357) or 1-888-CALL-NHT (225-5648), respectively.

Employers who are not mandated to file online have the option of either filing online or submitting their S02 return at any of the 29 TAJ tax offices or at any NHT office.

For persons filing manually, the S02 form is available electronically on the websites of the various agencies,, and, as well as at any TAJ, NHT and NIS office.
