BRA Extends Personal Income Tax Filing Deadline

(Bridgetown, April 24, 2020) The Barbados Revenue Authority today announced the deadline for taxpayers to file the 2019 personal income tax returns is extended to Friday, May 29, 2020.

This means taxpayers will have an extra month from the original deadline of April 30 to file their returns and to make the requisite payments. Taxpayers should also note that penalties and interest on payments made after April 30, will be deferred until the new deadline in May.

Amid the response to limit the spread of COVID-19 in Barbados, there has been reduced operational capacity across the country, however, the Authority continues to facilitate the needs of all taxpayers as best as possible. The Authority advises that the extension has been necessitated as a number of institutions have not yet uploaded information into TAMIS and this has been limiting the filing process. The extension gives taxpayers additional time to fulfil their filing and payment obligations.

Although the filing deadline has been extended, the Authority encourages taxpayers whose information is available in TAMIS, to file their returns and make any associated payments as early as possible.
