How To Register for 'IR Services on-line'

In order to use and benefit from the IRD Secure services for individuals one must possess an e-ID.

The benefits of the IRD Secure internet services are:

Accuracy - A series of checks and warnings prompt you to adjust any errors that might render your tax return inaccurate. These include validations with information in the Inland Revenue systems provided by your payors such as your employer or pension providers.

Efficiency - When you file your income tax over the Internet, the Department will calculate the tax on the amounts that you have entered in the on-line tax return. You will be able to settle any outstanding balance on-line using the e-PG or Internet Banking and your return will be acknowledged on line as soon as you confirm it. Information is processed automatically without any user intervention.

Savings - It will save you time, as you will no longer need to queue at the department to file your return or to pay any due tax. Secondly, it will reduce the use of paper - you will no longer be required to send paper copies of the tax return and related documents.
