The IRD has notified the taxpayers that the submission of the Income Tax Return for the Basis Year 2016 has been extended from the 30th June 2017 to the 7th July 2017 (see leaflet with your tax return pack sent to you by post). The IRD are informing taxpayers individually that settlement of tax for the Basis Year 2016 has also been extended from the June 30, 2017 to the July 7, 2017. Late submission of the settlement tax attracts interest.

NO EXTENSION HAS BEEN YET NOTIFIED ON THESE SUBMISSIONS. Late submission of the declaration and the 15% tax may disqualify the taxpayer from benefitting from the tax flat rate of 15%.
