1 way to reduce the Provisional Tax established by the IRD
One way to reduce the estimated Provisional Tax in Malta established by the Inland Revenue Department on the PT1 Form is to submit a PT Reduction Declaration Form.
If you, as taxpayer, feel that the requested Provisional Tax for this year as established by the Inland Revenue Department on your PT1 Form is excessive, then you may be entitled to reduce the Provisional Tax payable for the current year by filling in the appropriate PT Reduction Declaration Form. Reducing the provisional tax excessively may attract fines and interest.
The anticipated tax declared for this year as indicated on the PT Reduction Form will override the estimated tax established by the Inland Revenue Department for this year. A revised PT1 Form will be sent to you by the IRD. The revised tax must be calculated by the taxpayer based on the anticipated income for this year using the appropriate personal tax rates or other applicable tax rates.
All taxpayers who do not intend to make use of PT Reduction Declaration Form immediately are obliged to pay their Provisional Tax and their Social Security Contributions Class 2 (self-employed & self occupied status) as established by the Inland Revenue Department on the PT1 Form. The PT1 Form with payment is to reach the Inland Revenue Department in Floriana by the date indicated on the PT1 Form. Failure to meet this deadline will attract additional tax and additional SSC.
