If a tax agent has been authorised by an individual client/taxpayer to access his myTax Portal account via an IRAS-issued Authorisation Code, the individual client/taxpayer will be deemed as having authorised his tax agent to:
- Handle his individual income tax matters;
- Correspond with IRAS on his individual income tax matters through any mode of communication including telephone calls, myTax Mails/ emails, hardcopy letters and in-person meetings.
