I.T. (= Income Tax)

It's the time of the year again !!! The I.T. season, The HATRED season, the HEADACHE season, or might be the BAD HAIR season to some (due to endless head scratching). I doubt if there is any employee who likes or enjoys paying Income Tax. Initially I planned to do mine online using the E-Filing but after reading the scary encounter here, I decided to stick back to the old method - filling in the BE form manually. Mmmmm... after tick tack tick tack calculating, adding & deducting the taxable incomes & rebates, the final conclusion is... I have paid the income tax in excess for 2006! Every month, a small amount of $$$ was deducted automatically from my monthly income for the Scheduled Tax Deduction scheme or PCB without fail (sob). How soon will I get back my tax refund? I presume it might take ages (or years??)..

Should I visit the IRB one of these days to submit my "Borang BE" manually? Or should I post it? Have u done yours? Time is running... tick tock tick tock.. 13 more days to go ;)

I have finished mine a couple of days back. Migraine!

For those who are employed, it's easier because your employers will give you the Annual Pay Statement.

Now wait for summon. haiz...

I'm worried of that too..
That's why last year I submit to the IRB office in Penang by hand. I submitted two days prior to the dateline. The IRB office is people mountain people sea. There are many who come to take the BE form instead of submitting.. KKkkk... The last minute job ;)
Typical Malaysians liao...

Woof Woof n Meow Meow said...

wats dat all about?

really got no idea...=P

Cocka Doodle said...

Notice that on the last page of the tax returns form...there is a section for you to fill up if there's outstanding tax due to them.
However, if you have paid in excess, there is no provision for you to fill and file for refund.

Such is the mentality of the IRB!
In some countries, if they owe you, they refund you with interest!

kyh said...

yay me still no need!

WHEE!!!! MAN SUI!!! :P

iml said...

Sent in BY HAND. Don't take chances, esp with the local post.

(is this chicken & duck talk? :P)

Some of the hawkers earn more than me (eg those famous laksa & CKT hawkers),
Abuthen,did any of them ever pay income tax?
Kkkkkkkkkkkkkkk….

Can start worrying liao :P
Nyek nyek…

U can ask your daddy ;)
Cos soon u will start working liao..

pss.. don’t tell me u don’t want to work after u graduate :P

Chen said...

cocka,
Yeah loh.. the only way to get the refund is to write "love" letters to them..
Which might take ages for them to process too..
Aiyh..

kyh,
At the moment u no need..
But sooner or later, u will have to do so :P
LOL

iml,
Yeah, I agree..
Safer to submit by hand, which I will do so...

misti,
Cubit face is sayang lah..
remember we used to pinch those cute little babies’ cheek?
*giggle*

I don’t simply cubit people wan..
U see? I don’t cubit those "ah chu ah kau" out there :P

On & off, I cubit Ah Boy’s face too leh.. So cubit face = sayang

Chen said...

papercrazy,
Wah… u so good wan..
Next year, can my beloved papercrazy fill in my BE form for me?

I will tear off the transparent plastic bag for u..
And one plate of duck egg char koay teow..Plus one glass of iced lemon tea…)
LOL

pink cotton,
That "soon" might take years..
As u know lah…. :P

Walao.. last minute job?
The LHDN office will be packed like sardine on the last few days leh..
Last year they extended the working hours till late midnight & even opened on Sat/Sun
Cos people here likes to procrastinate mah :(

Woof Woof n Meow Meow said...

papercrazy said...

Kau tim.....

Chen said...

woof meow,
But sure he did it in the past..
Abuthen, u can learn by yourself too..
Very simple niah
Nobody taught me in the past too :P

I still remember u told me the same thing in the past leh...
U should experience the working life & mixed with your colleagues in the working society..
U have grown up already lah..
No excuse for u not to work after graduation. Else u will be left out liao & lost touch with society.

No work = No income/money..
Then u will have no say
Isn’t that irony? ;)

Just my 2 cents :)

papercrazy,
Half a plate enough meh?
I add in half a plate of mee goring mamak for u :P

sengkor said...

waiting for them to refund u..? i suggest u go buy lottery. the chances are higher.

I've done mine, but still haven't paid up... *sigh*

Selba said...

Yup, done and submitted it last month. Indonesia dateline will be 31 March.

Chen said...

sengkor,

So sad huh?
*sob*

I remember u did yours early, before u left Malaysia :)
Is there any deadline for payment ah?

selba,
Phewwwwww...
what a relief when the dreadful thing is done & submitted.
This year, i dowan to procrastinate & wait till the last minute like what i did last year.. At least I can now shake leg a little bit :P

lynnx01 said...

You can always pay a tax audit assistant to 'kau tim' everything for you. My cousin is working as one. Hehe.. but she promised not to charge me next time when I need to pay tax. But when I ask my dad, he says it's easy peasy job leh. Sounds complicated, though..

Chen said...

lynnx,
Hehehe, i dun need those service yet.
Since i work with the gahmen, my income is fixed and everything is printed out black & white in the annual income statement. Regarding locum, that is up to individuals ;). Those who works in the private sector or doing own biz.. different story loh.

U can still fill in the form without any difficulties on your own (in the future, after u start working). Don't worry :)

day-dreamer said...

Who likes paying Income Tax? I'm really interested to know. Hahahaha!

Wah... means when I work and my salary is more than RM2500 I sendiri have to do all the calculations?

Is there a country where you don't have to pay tax? KKKKK!

Chen said...

day dreamer,
I doubt so.. ;)

How come last time when my salary is less than RM2,500 I still have to pay income tax geh? They ti(p)u my hard earned $$$ for so many years!!! CIS

Of course there are countries whereby u dun have to pay income tax..
One good example is our neighbour country, Brunei :D
Interested to migrate there? :P

Simple American said...

It looks so scarey! wakakaka

With efiling I could learn the Malaysian taxes and provide tax service to you guys. keke

Chen said...

SA,
Tax is forever scary..
A world without tax is "heaven"..
LOL

Kkkkkk.. so, soon u can expand your biz worldwide liao
