Paying your taxes/ Claiming refunds

  • 'Notice of Assessment' refers to your tax bill. It shows the types and amount of income brought to tax, deductions claimed, and the amount of tax payable by you or tax repayable to you.


  • Please check your tax bill (Notice of Assessment) when you receive it. If you disagree with the tax assessment, please file an objection and state your reason(s) for objection within 30 days from the date of the tax bill.

  • Most taxpayers pay their taxes on time. There are penalties if tax is not paid on time.

  • Generally, tax credits of at least $15 are automatically refunded without the need for taxpayers to submit a claim. Refunds made via GIRO can be received as early as 7 days from the date the tax credit arises while those made via cheques may take up to 30 days. IRAS will pay interest on refunds made after 30 days from the date the tax credit arises unless the refund relates to circumstances where automatic refund of tax credits will not be made.
  • If your tax bill is incorrect, please file an objection using the “Object to Assessment” e-Service at myTax Portal.

    You can pay your taxes by GIRO to enjoy up to 12 monthly interest-free instalments or opt for a one-time yearly GIRO deduction.
