Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) | 2015-03-31 00:00:00

Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) is reminding ALL employers that their Employers Annual Return (S02) is due today, March 31 and must be filed electronically via the TAJ Portal www.jamaicatax.gov.jm.  This means S02 returns will not be accepted manually.

Employers and their agents are reminded that a business must be registered in the TAJ Portal to allow the S02 to be filed online.  Employers are advised that once they are filing online they must ensure that the form is properly completed, to include the TRN and NIS for the employees listed.
Throughout the day, TAJ will continue to provide guidance to employers and or their agents on how to register and file the S02 electronically at its various locations, as well as through the Customer Care Centre 1-888-Tax-Help (829-4357).  Arrangements have also been made at the main Revenue Service Centres for employers and other taxpayers to get assistance from trained personnel and to allow them to use TAJ facilities to eFile the S02.

Since October 2014 personnel from the partner agencies have been conducting sessions across the island to assist business persons to make the transition to mandatory e-filing of the S02.  The multi-agency teams have provided one-on-one support to employers, accountants and other tax preparers to assist them to register to use the online option and to demonstrate how to file online.

The requirement for all employers to file their Employers Annual Return online, which took effect on of January 1, 2015, was implemented in partnership with the National Housing Trust (NHT), the National Insurance Scheme (NIS) and the HEART Trust NTA. The mandatory online filing obligation is aimed at enhancing the capacity to more accurately capture data in a timely and cost effective manner, while assisting in the efforts of TAJ and its partner agencies to develop a more efficient tax system.

For further information persons may call the Tax Administration Customer Care Centre at 1-888-Tax-Help (1-888-829-4357) or visit the website www.jamaicatax.gov.jm.
