ST. GEORGE’S, GRENADA Tuesday, March 21, 2017: The Inland Revenue Division (IRD) of the Ministry of Finance wishes to remind taxpayers who are liable to pay Income Tax, that only a few more days remain for filing of Income Tax Returns and where applicable, payment of any outstanding liabilities ahead of the March 31st deadline.
The tax returns due are:
- Personal Income Tax (PIT)Corporate Income Tax (CIT)
- Annual Stamp Tax (AST)
Sole traders, partners, companies, other organizations and employed persons are therefore urged to prepare and file their Return of Income along with their financial statement, where applicable, and make all required payments prior to March 31st to avoid the long lines.
Employees are reminded that the current income tax law, not only mandates persons earning more than $3,000 per month or $36,000 per year to pay Income Tax, but it also requires them to file an Income Tax Return each year.
Taxpayers who do not meet the deadline of March 31st, 2017, will be required to pay late filing penalties and interests.
Employees are required to obtain a Certificate of Remuneration, stating total salaries received and taxes paid for the period from their employer. This certificate must be attached to the Tax Return Form. The Personal Income Tax (PIT) Return and other forms can be obtained from the IRD website at www.ird.gd.
Tax returns are to be submitted to the IRD on or before the required date. The Tax Identification Number (TIN) must be stated on the Tax Return Form when filing.
