Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) | 2012-05-01 16:13:00

 Employers are reminded that the additional time given for the submission of the 2011 Employer’s Annual Return (S02) expires today April 30.  They are therefore urged to file their returns by the end of the business day.
The one month extension had been implemented to facilitate employers who were unable to meet the March 31 deadline to submit the new form, due to challenges they may have faced.  During the period, Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) in collaboration with its partner agencies the National Housing Trust (NHT) and the National Insurance Scheme (NIS) increased their outreach activities to assist employers with completing the new forms.  Several sessions and individual compliance visits were undertaken to guide employers in the process.
Employers are reminded that they may use any of the following three (3) options to file their returns:

1.      Online via the TAJ Tax Portal at (recommended).

2.      At any TAJ/NHT office across the island, where a signed S02 form and printed schedules would be submitted.  It should be noted that printed schedules generated from a payroll system need not be on the gazetted form, but MUST match the format of the column headers, etc.

3.      At any TAJ/NHT office across the island, where a signed S02 form and schedules on CD would be submitted.  It should be noted that schedules on CDs MUST be in the ASCII format.

Employers are also reminded that the TRN and NIS numbers are to be entered on the schedules for all employees. Forms are available at any TAJ, NIS & NHT Office Island wide or may be downloaded from the following websites:
