With one week left for the filing of Annual Income Tax Returns for the year 2015 and to declare Estimated Income and Tax Payable for the year 2016, Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) is increasing its assistance to hundreds of small businesses and self-employed persons through its Special Taxpayer Assistance Programme (STAP). Through the STAP, small business persons can access free support to prepare and file their Income Tax Returns due March 15.

Taxpayers have until March 15 to attend any of the island wide sessions, which focus on registering and assisting persons to file their Income Tax Returns online using TAJ’s new Revenue Administration Information System (RAiS). Persons are reminded to take their business related documents to the STAP session, of their choice, to get assistance and guidance from tax personnel to prepare and file their returns. These documents include Taxpayer Registration Number (TRN), bank statements, purchase invoices, expense receipts, sales records, utility bills and any other records that can be used to verify their income and expenses.  

All taxpayers, including self-employed individuals, partners, companies, other bodies and employed persons with additional sources of income, are urged not to wait until the last day to file and pay their returns, as there is normally a significant increase in the number of persons visiting the TAJ portal or a tax office to transact business on March 15.
