Tax payment deadline

06 December 2017

The Taxes Office is reminding Islanders that outstanding taxes need to be paid by Friday 8 December at 6pm. Late payments may attract a 10% surcharge.

Currently (Wednesday 6 December) about 2,000 taxpayers with a balance to pay had income tax and long-term care charges outstanding which amounts to a total of around £15 million to be collected. The Taxes Office has issued nearly 8,000 notices of assessment throughout the year which contained a notification that a balance was still to be paid.

Islanders who pay the majority of their tax by ITIS and therefore have not received a notification with an instruction that they have a balance to pay outstanding will not incur a surcharge.

Assistant Comptroller of Taxes Chris Le Breton said: “The majority of Islanders pay their taxes and long term care contribution in good time. However, each year a number of people face paying a fine as we near the end of the year. People have a number of payment options open to them – the easiest being to pay online – which hopefully means very few will miss the deadline.”

Outstanding amounts can be paid online using a debit card on the Tax payment portal.

Cheques can also be posted to the department but need to be received before Friday 8 December at 6 pm.
