E-Filling in Malaysia - Latest updates

Very soon, we can check our income tax records from home by using the e-Filling from next year onwards. (Source: TheStar, 18th October 2006)

Among the available information will be:
  • Information on the income tax paid last year, and where and how it was paid, will be available online
  • online tax return “form” will have the taxpayer’s personal particulars like identity card number, address and the names of the spouse and children.
A taxpayer will be able to get the PIN and security code online via the IRB website ( from next year unlike the current year practice which required he/she to collect the PIN from the IRB branches.

E-Filling which was introduced this year did experience some problems such as:
  • Some people had Internet access, but lacked the proper software, and the system did not work
  • There was also congestion when many taxpayers filed in their tax forms at the same time.

I didn't use it this year but I may want to try it next year.
