Ha! It's time to prepare for the Income Tax again. As usual it's been dreading yearly activity to compile all the receipt, documents, bills and whatever I have and to get all the proper record. I have been keeping most of these in a big envelope because I know it will really helps me when I start doing this tax return.
Yesterday in the Main Office Lobby, our HR had arranged for the Inland Revenue to set up a counter to handle all the tax enquiries for the staff. I didn't bother to join becuase I wasn't ready yet. I have been postponing to even start doing it since I got the Income Tax Return last February.
So this morning I thought of doing it for good cause I wasn't that busy today. Went into the Income tax website and got access to the e-filing. It was quite easy though compared when I tried to access it last year. Last year I got so frustrated trying to get into the website, let alone downloading the file. So last year I ended up submitting my tax return via the normal manual form.
Once I have downloaded the file, eveything seems to be simple. And since I got all the hospital bills, insurance statement, zakat statement, EA form and everything I needed, I start filling up the relevant boxes. It will also automatically calculate how much you got to pay.
I was really excited cause the amount at end of the statement says "cukai yang terlebih bayar RM1,073.29". Is it for sure??? I kept recalculating the figures to make sure. Yes! it is the extra amount that I have paid. Woweee!!!!!!!! What a relieve and what a pleasure.
After many years of submitting the tax return, this is the first time the Inland Revenue owes me that much hahahaaa... So I print out a copy of the statement just to make sure that it is for real. And I also made a personal record of submitting the tax way before the dateline and not rushing to submit it on the last day.
