PUTRAJAYA: An exercise to allow more categories of taxpayers to register for their income tax number through e-Daftar as well as changing the prefix of individual taxpayers (from SG and OG to IG) will start tomorrow.
The Inland Revenue Board (LHDN) said the registration of income tax numbers for taxpayers in the categories of Cooperative Society (CS), Association (F), Trust Body (TA), Unit or Real Property Trust (TC), Business Trust (TN) and Real Estate Investment Trust/Property Trust Fund (TR) could be carried out online via e-Daftar through the link https://edaftar.hasil.gov.my/.
At the moment, it said e-Daftar was limited to taxpayer categories such as SG and OG, Companies (C), Partnership (D), Employer (E) and Limited Liability Partnership (PT).“From May 18, LHDN will also be implementing a new prefix for individual taxpayers from SG and OG now to the prefix IG.
“The process of setting the new prefix will involve two phases, namely phase one for new individual taxpayers registered through LHDN’s system.
“Phase two will involve changing the prefix of existing individual taxpayers in stages, ” it said.
LHDN said changing the prefix would not involve any changes to the taxpayer’s existing individual income tax number.
The deadline for submission of return forms for individuals is on April 30 each year for individuals who do not carry out business and June 30 each year for individuals with a business.
It said the move to enable the additional categories of taxpayers to register under e-Daftar was an initiative under revenue transformation as a continuous effort to improve services for taxpayers.
The setting and changing the prefix SG and OG to IG for individual taxpayers could facilitate the management of taxpayers and avoid confusion among individual taxpayers.
