Since the implementation of the Revenue Administration Information System (RAiS) on February 9, 2015, Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) says 2,000 consumption tax returns being filed through its new web service since its implementation on February 9.

And it says this represents 27 per cent of returns filed on time for the January period.

Phase one of Revenue Administration Information System (RAiS) was successfully rolled out by TAJ to expand its e-services.

In this phase it allows persons to file and pay General Consumption Tax, Special Consumption Tax, Guest Accommodation Room Tax and Telephone Call Tax via the TAJ’s online portal.

In addition, the platform allows taxpayers to query their accounts, create a payment plan, apply for a refund, object to a tax assessment, request a tax advisory visit, send secure messages and set up payment sources.

And Tax administration Jamaica says over the next few weeks, it will continue meeting with various stakeholder groups and persons to sensitise them to the benefits and ease of using the new platform.
