How to complete your Jersey personal tax form
Completing a tax return
If we send you a tax return, you must complete it and send it back to us to make sure that you pay the correct amount of tax for that year.
Your completed return gives us your declaration of all your income, reliefs and deductions so we can assess how much tax and long-term care contributions you have to pay.
If you pay tax by Income Tax Instalment Scheme (ITIS) we'll update your effective rate.
If you pay on account we'll tell you how much your balancing payment needs to be.

Including evidence with the return
There's no need to include any of your payslips, receipts or certificates with your return.
The only thing you might need to include is a foreign tax computation if you're claiming relief for foreign tax paid.
You do still need to keep all your financial records safe in case we ask to see them.
