More people submitting tax returns online

More Manx residents are submitting their tax returns online as the deadline for submitting the paperwork nears.

Taxpayers need to complete their returns for the 2016-17 financial year by October 6th or face a £100 fine.

The Treasury has revealed that almost 11,000 returns have already been submitted through the Government's Online Services, around 35% of those completed so far.

The figure is up from around 9200 or 30% at this time last year.

Those wishing to sign up for Online Services to be able to submit this year's tax return can do so by contacting the Government on 685400 and selecting option 2.
