ITIS effective rate tax questions answered

My tax rate has changed during the year

If you pay your tax by ITIS you are sent a provisional tax rate based on your last tax assessment. This is sent before the start of the year that it applies from. The aim of this rate is to pay your tax by the end of the year.

This is then reviewed when we calculate your tax from the information you provide on your tax return. If you haven't paid enough or you've been paying too much we'll adjust your rate to try and ensure your tax is paid.

If your income has changed and the rate will either significantly under or over pay your tax you can update your circumstances using our online form.

Update your ITIS effective rate

I've just received my ITIS rate for next year and it's gone up

This is your provisional ITIS effective rate and is based on your last tax assessment. It won't take into account your most current circumstances as it's just a percentage calculation of your total income and your combined tax and long-term care. The percentage is then rounded up to the nearest whole percent.

This provisional ITIS rate is then reviewed after we receive your tax return and have calculated your tax. You'll then receive your tax assessment and a reviewed ITIS rate.

If you need your rate reviewed you should file your return as early as possible or tell us about a change in your income using the online form.

Tax assessment questions answered

How the tax bill is calculated

The standard rate of tax in Jersey is 20%. This is the maximum personal income tax you will pay in a year. Depending on your income or your circumstances you may pay less than the standard rate.

Calculating your annual tax bill

What tax deductions are available

There are various deductions and reliefs which can reduce your bill. Some of these are calculated automatically (basic marginal relief) and others you have to claim on your tax return to get a deduction (for example married or civil partnership tax exemption threshold, interest relief, tax deductions for dependant children or employment expenses).

Allowances, reliefs and deductions for income tax

Tax overpayments

If you pay tax on a current year basis and you've overpaid your tax you can either let the overpayment roll forward to next year or you can request a repayment by emailing Revenue Jersey. Please include your Tax Identification Number (TIN).

If you pay tax on a prior year basis then your payments will be moved from 2019 tax to 2020 as part of the prior year tax reform. We won't know if you've overpaid until after the 2020 tax return has been submitted. You'll then be able to request a repayment, roll the tax forward or request it to be set off against the 2019 frozen tax bill.
