40% of tax returns yet to be submitted

Deadline is October 6th

40% of the Island's population are yet to submit their tax returns.

The Income Tax Division is offering additional support to those yet to complete the form for the 2017-18 financial year with just over a week until the October 6th deadline.

An out-of-hours telephone service will be available on Thursday and Friday evening next week, as well as on Saturday morning, while staff are also on hand at the tax office for those who need last-minute help.

Treasury staff will be able to help the public sign up for Online Services, cutting the need to post or hand in the return.

Gerard Higgins from the Income Tax Division says more people than ever are completing their returns online.

The number for the out-of-hours service is 685400.
