Inland Revenue to host education drive
THE Inland Revenue Department will be launching an education drive during the last quarter of this year. According to senior tax inspector Neville Clarke, this is being done with the cooperation of businesses to help taxpayers become more familiar with the Electronic Tax Administration System. “While paper filing is still available, the preferred choice is to file all documents electronically since it reduces errors made by persons keying returns and forms. “It also makes the processing of returns much easier, since the system has preset limits [and]will inform taxpayers about these limits when they file,” Clarke said.
He said the department is currently in the process of making a number of videos which will show taxpayershow to register themselves online, upload XML Schema, and file Web forms, income tax returns and reverse tax credit returns. “We will also be available to organisationsto speak to all interested persons in workshop sessions while giving demonstrations of all aspects of the electronic system,” he said.
