Revenue Jersey: Less than a Week Left to File Your Paper Tax Return

May 26, 2023


• Revenue Jersey is reminding Islanders that they only have until Wednesday 31 May to file their paper tax returns

• Anyone who misses the paper deadline can still file online, but will need a digital ID

• The Late Filing Penalty is £300 which can increase monthly until the return is filed. 

Revenue Jersey is reminding Islanders that they only have until Wednesday 31 May to file their paper tax returns. As of Friday (19 May), Revenue Jersey had received almost 19,200 paper returns.

Revenue Jersey has also received just over 14,000 online returns, which is 1,031 more than the number received by 20 May 2022.

Islanders are also reminded that the deadline of 31 July 2023 applies to online filing only – any paper returns received after 31 May 2023 will be liable for a late filing penalty. Anyone who misses the paper filing deadline can still file online, but will need a digital ID. There are two digital IDs to choose from and they both require a valid (not expired) passport. More details are available at gov.je/MyTaxReturn

Taxpayers should be aware that the process of setting up a digital ID can take time. A few days might be needed to verify an account if the information provided doesn’t match Revenue Jersey’s records. Islanders who miss the paper filing deadline should try to activate their digital IDs as soon as they can. 

Anyone who already has a Yoti account should try to recover it, rather than setting up a second account. Yoti accounts will remain valid even if the passport used at the time of setup has expired. For more help with recovering an old Yoti account, Islanders are advised to contact Customer and Local Services on 01534 444444. Step-by-step guidance is also available online at gov.je/Yoti.

The alternative to using Yoti is to create a JerseyMe account. Anyone with a valid passport can set up a JerseyMe ID using a computer (no smartphone required). Customers seeking help with JerseyMe are advised to visit the Broad Street Post Office; or to call the JerseyMe helpline on 01534 616600. Step-by-step guidance is also available at gov.je/JerseyMe.

Finally, Islanders are reminded that the late filing penalty (£300) increases by £50 per month. Anyone who misses both the online and paper deadlines should still file their tax return as soon as possible.
