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.
    • Tax refunds made via PayNow (receiving GST and Corporate Tax refunds) and GIRO will be received within 7 days from the date of the tax credit arises. Tax refunds made via cheques may take up to 30 days.
    • IRAS will pay interest on tax refunds made after 30 days from the date the tax credit arises unless it is a situation 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.
