Sign up for online services and save time says government

More and more people are using Online Services for a range of reasons, including searching for jobs, paying rates and utility bills and applying for licences.

While border restrictions remain in place, even more new users have accessed the site recently following the launch of the Manx Entry Permit, and to complete a Landing Form within 48 hours of travelling back to the Island.

One of the most popular ways to use Online Services is to submit a personal tax return – the number has been rising steadily and was over 48 per cent in 2018-19 tax year.

Once you register, online tax forms are already populated with salary and state benefit details, removing the need to look up and provide the information manually.

Due to the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, this year’s deadline has been put back a month to 6 November. Those who have not yet made the switch to online services are being encouraged to sign up for the convenient, secure and environmentally-friendly service.

Visit gov.im/onlineservices to find out how to get registered for the wide range of benefits it can bring.

These include:

  • Submitting and viewing a tax return online
  • Receiving instant confirmation of a tax return submission
  • Reviewing assessments and balance details easily and securely
  • Making secure online payments
  • Having income tax refunds paid directly into a bank account

The Income Tax Division continues to provide a professional service for those who do not have internet access or prefer to send in paper copies of their return forms.

Further help and guidance is available on the Government website, by calling 685400 or by emailing incometax@gov.im
