Who can file a tax return (primary taxpayer)

Only a primary taxpayer can file a personal tax return, both online and in paper.

You're a primary taxpayer if you're:

  • single (not married or in a civil partnership)
  • single (separated from your spouse or civil partner)
  • in a different sex marriage and you’re the husband
  • in a same sex marriage and you are older than your spouse
  • in a civil partnership and you’re older than your partner (unless you’ve previously elected the younger partner as the primary taxpayer)
  • in a marriage or civil partnership and have previously elected for separate assessments

Change in marital / civil partnership status

If you changed marital / civil partnership status partway through a year, you need to file a return for that year: This is because you are the primary taxpayer up to / from the date of the change. You need to enter data up to the date of the marriage, civil partnership, or from the date of separation until the end of the year.

You'll need to let Revenue Jersey know of changes related to marriages, civil partnerships and separations, to update your primary taxpayer status.

Saving your progress and correcting mistakes

If you have to leave the form for any reason, save your progress.

You'll receive an email with a link in it each time you save. This link will take you back to where you last saved.

Open the email and use this link, don't go to the form via the onegov home screen or from the services tab, because a new form will be started and you'll lose your progress.

You can also access your saved form in the history tab on the onegov home screen. 

As long as you’ve not submitted your return, you can go back through the form if you need to correct anything.

Paper tax returns

If you are submitting a paper tax return, see our paper return guidance notes.

Paper returns need to be submitted by 31 May 2020.
