Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) has switched over to its new Enterprise Portal following an upgrade of its web services. This consolidates several previously operated web options. Users of the new tax website will be able to seamlessly access TAJ’s various internet services, such as making online payments, filing returns electronically, querying their property tax status, downloading tax forms or simply browsing to get tax information.

Persons already registered to electronically file tax returns may be required to update their user profile. Persons who only had a log in to make payments will be required to create a new account the first time they attempt to log in the new TAJ Enterprise Portal.

The new TAJ Enterprise Portal has been developed as the TAJ prepares to rollout phase 1 of its Revenue Administration Information System (RAiS), set for February 9, 2015. At this time RAiS will be integrated in the new TAJ Enterprise Portal. Until then users will not be able to access online services related to General Consumption Tax (GCT), Special Consumption Tax (SCT), Guest Accommodation  Room Tax (GART), or Telephone Call Tax (TCT), but may continue to transact these services at any Tax Office.

Once the RAiS becomes operational on February 9, users will find it easier to file their GCT and SCT returns electronically, as well as being able to begin filing the GART and TCT returns online. Through the new web facility persons will also be able carry out several other activities, including viewing their accounts, making payment arrangements, submitting notice of objection, sending and receiving secure messages and applying for refunds related to the tax types scheduled for roll out in RAiS.

For further information persons may call the Tax Administration Customer Care Centre at 1-888-Tax-Help (1-888-829-4357) or visit the website www.jamaicatax.gov.jm
