As it continues to process tax refunds, the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) is urging individual taxpayers to ensure that it has their correct addresses.
GRA said in a statement on Thursday that it is currently processing refunds for this group of taxpayers, commencing from the Year of Assessment 2010 to 2017.
It said that this is in keeping with the law, and the Authority’s promise made earlier this year to reduce refund backlogs, thereby enabling employees and other individual taxpayers who have refunds pending for a number of years to receive theirs within 2017.
Based on past experiences with issuing refunds via registered post, taxpayers – business persons and employees/ individuals alike – are advised to inform the Revenue Authority of any change to their business and or individual (home) addresses, the GRA said.
It said that failure to do so may result in mail going to incorrect addresses and/or being returned to GRA.
The GRA offered an assurance to taxpayers that updating their contact information will come at no cost.
Persons desirous of further information on tax refund cheques can contact the GRA’s Finance Division on 227-6060 or 227-8222, extensions 4504 or 4508.
