Monday, February 11, 2002 – The Inland Revenue Department says the distribution of all return forms to tax payers island-wide has been completed in preparation for filing by the April 5, 2002 deadline. Leslie-Ann Modeste of the Tax Payer Relations Unit says unlike in the past where packages were sent to tax payers privately, this year packagers were sent to employers or placed at key locations like libraries and post offices.

Modeste says the department has extended the deadline date for employers to submit their annual TD6 return forms to February 15, while the March 31 deadline date for employees has been shifted to April 5.

“You would have noticed that what we are giving persons reminders as to what they need in order to complete the income tax return forms. We really want them to take note of that, go around to the relevant institutions and get the documents, prepare and complete the forms. If help is needed we are there to assist at our offices in Castries, Vieux Fort and Soufriere,” said Modeste.

She says the Department’s community outreach programme will commence again next month.

“We have sent letters to different institutions like the Chamber of Commerce, Employers Federation, St. Lucia Hotel and Tourism Association asking whether they would like us to come into the workplace to assist employees in filing the returns. We know that most times it’s a bit difficult for employees to get to our offices so we are making this service available to our clients. We are willing and able to come to you during the work hour to assist your staff in completing the return forms.”

New for 2001 are deductions on solar water heaters and shares in public companies. This year however mortgage interest deductions will only be allowed if taxpayers are up to date on their property taxes.
