Failure to File a Tax Return
You are required to file an Income Tax Return each year. If a taxpayer fails to file a return as required, the Comptroller will make an assessment based on the relevant information that is available at that time or to the best of the Comptroller’s judgment. While the return remains unfiled, the Comptroller can indefinitely reassess the ‘best judgment assessment’, as many times, as new information is uncovered.
Taxpayers are reminded that property tax is due and payable each year, on or before June 30th.
NB All property bills with arrears, must first be queried at the Customer Service Section, before payment is made. Property bills without arrears should be taken directly to the Cashier Section for payment.
All vehicle owners whose licence plate ends with 1, must renew their vehicle licence before January 31st. Similarly, if your vehicle licence plate ends with 2, you must renew your vehicle licence before February 29th to avoid interest charges and ticketing fees..
All insurance companies are reminded that a statement showing the number of policies issued, the value of every policy and any other information required by the Accountant General must accompany the registration fee remittance and the insurance premium remittance. The forms can be found under Form & Guides tab then click on Tax Returns.
