Around 2,000 people in Jersey are at risk of being ‘fined’ for paying their taxes late, estimated to add up to a collective £15million.
The deadline to pay off outstanding taxes is 6pm today (Friday). Those who don’t do so by that time may face a 10% surcharge for not submitting income tax and long-term care charges in time.
The Taxes Office says it sent out 8,000 bills to people in Jersey who had money yet to pay. Around 6,000 have already got back to them and done so.
Assistant Comptroller of Taxes Chris Le Breton said: “The majority of islanders pay their taxes and long term care contribution in good time. However, each year a number of people face paying a fine as we near the end of the year. People have a number of payment options open to them, the easiest being to pay online, which hopefully means very few will miss the deadline.”
