The Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) has issued a general advisory that refunds for individual taxpayers are currently being processed, and those refunds would apply to the years of assessment 2010 to 2017.
The GRA statement said this is in keeping with the law and the Authority’s promise made earlier this year — to reduce refund backlogs, thereby allowing employees and other individual taxpayers who have tax refunds pending for a number of years to receive their refunds within 2017.
Based on past experience with issuing refunds via registered post, taxpayers – business persons and employees/ individuals alike — are advised to inform the Revenue Authority of any change to their business and/or individual (home) addresses. Failure to do so may result in the likelihood of mail going to incorrect addresses and/or being returned to the GRA.
The GRA also has assured taxpayers that updating their contact information will come at no cost.
GRA has said that anyone desirous of further information on tax refund cheques can contact its Finance Division on 227-6060, 227-8222 extensions: 4504 or 4508.
