Income tax filing deadline extended
The Barbados Revenue Authority (BRA) has deferred the cut-off date for filing in response to entities in both the public and private sector, indicating issues they have been experiencing with uploading requisite information in TAMIS. This limits individuals being able to file.
Taxpayers now have until May 31 to file personal income tax for 2018 and to make their requisite tax payments.
The BRA is working to ensure that all information is uploaded expediently, in order to facilitate the amended deadline.
“We believe that this adjusted filing period of May 31, will allow employers, third party providers and individuals to fulfil their legal obligations,” said Wayne Forde, Revenue Commissioner (ag).
“Part of our ongoing efforts to assist taxpayers is through outreach and education activities and this Saturday, we will be hosting our first series of tax filing clinics,” Forde said. (PR)
