BAGAN MCA division is offering its services to those who need help with their Bantuan Prihatin Rakyat (BPR) claims.
Its chairman Dr Tan Chuan Hong said the division is prepared to assist the public in their applications and inquiries about the status of their claims.
“Bantuan Prihatin Rakyat applications are open from now to Feb 15 for a period of one month.
“New applicants are reminded that they can apply online through the official website of the Inland Revenue Department (LHDN) at (https://bpr.hasil.gov.my) or download the form, fill in and submit it to the department.
“As for those who have registered under Bantuan Sara Hidup (BSH) or Bantuan Perihatin Nasional (BPN 2.0), as long as the information appears on the website after the inquiry, they do not need to reapply.
“If there are changes to the information, then they need to update, ” he said in a statement.
Dr Tan said those who do not know how to fill in the forms and do not understand the details required or want to inquire about the status of their application can visit the Bagan MCA division for assistance.
He urged the public to apply through the official website of the Inland Revenue Department, and not visit unknown websites, to avoid being deceived and losing money.
“I urge the public to refrain from forwarding information from unknown sources to prevent your friends or relatives from clicking on fake websites, ” he said.
