It is your responsibility as a taxpayer to pay your taxes on time. Nobody can predict how the economic environment will change in the future. Pandemics have struck the global economy in the last three years. Many countries’ economies are recovering as a result of the restrictive entry policy. Other factors, such as war and an unstable regional political environment, continue to pose threats. Unfortunately, no matter how severe your financial difficulties are, Inland Revenue Department will stop levying the tax. What should you do if you are having difficulty paying your taxes on time? Let’s take a look.
The IRD has a team called the Collection Enforcement Section, which allows taxpayers who are undergoing financial difficulties to apply for instalments. To submit the application, the applicant must provide the following documents:
||copies of all his/her bank passbooks, bank statements, approval letters from banks or financial institutions showing the banking facilities granted (where applicable) for the latest three months;
||an income and expenditure statement with supporting evidence showing the current financial position for the past three months;
||The latest 3-month management accounts (including profits and loss account and balance sheet), the cash flow position and forecast of his/her business (where applicable);
||a concrete payment proposal; and
Please keep in mind that over long-term installment payments will not be accepted. A 5% surcharge will be applied to the balance of total tax payable that is not paid by the due date, and a further 10% surcharge will be applied to the amount that remains unpaid (including tax and the 5% surcharge) six months after the due date.
