Unpaid tax from previous years and your effective rate

​Collecting tax arrears

Tax and long-term care arrears are taken into account when calculating your effective rate.

The maximum rate than can be set depends on how many years of outstanding tax you have:

  • 1 year 27%
  • 2 years 32%
  • 3 years or more 37%

It may be that a balancing payment at the end of the year is more appropriate, especially if you have a high proportion of income from non-employment sources (eg investment or property income) or your earnings have ceased.

Alternatively, you can set up a monthly direct debit to cover the tax from these sources of income. Just ask for a direct debit mandate from Revenue Jersey.

You can find out more about time to pay arrangements if you're unable to pay your tax here.
