New era for ­Inland Revenue

17 December 2018 | Economics

As from mid-January next year, taxpayers will be able to submit their tax returns to the Inland Revenue department using the new Integrated Tax Administration System (ITAS), which is accessible at all times.

Along with this, the current tax system – where taxpayers submit their returns at the Ministry of Finance's inland departments – shuts down on 31 December 2018.

According to ITAS project manager, Sirkka Masilo, once the new system becomes operational, users will be able to submit their tax returns online, suspend or deregister themselves or their companies.

The system will also access and affirm submissions immediately.

As part of the transition, there will be a two-week system downtime (from 31 December 2018 to 16 January 2019) for all individual and business transactions, before the new system comes into operation.

Masilo said provision has been made for individuals who do not have access to the internet to still submit their returns physically at the Inland Revenue offices around the country. However, the time it takes to process the tax returns will take longer than the online system.
