Public urged to submit tax returns online

The Island's Income Tax Division is urging the Manx public to use its online services to submit their tax returns.

The Government says over 7,000 people have so far use the online platform to submit their 2016-17 returns, which are due in October.

The division insists there are a number of benefits to filling out the form online, including instant calculations and faster processing of refunds.

More than 18,000 used the online services for personal tax returns last year.
