When ICA says you should have at least 3 tax assessments, that means you should have passed 31 December, employed here at least three times. It does not say you should have had to actually pay any taxes. They don't care if you pay $0 or 100,000 dollars, but that you were employed during those years. When your employer, who is most likely on the auto-inclusion scheme, electronically submits your income to IRAS via IR8E data transfer, you have had a Tax assessment. If the assessment shows no tax or no more tax(as the case may be), then you will usually get an sms or email stating that nothing further needs to be done unless you have other income or deductions that need to be claimed/changed. Having three tax assessments doesn't mean you necessarily has to paid taxes. 27 or 28 months of employment is good enough. (Last 3 months of the first year and two additional years of work. That's three assessments.

hmm ... what kind of information that they can actually derive from the tax assessment ? if it's about the salary isn't that can be retrieved through the MOM portal, which i suppose they have really close connection to.
does that actually put someone in a bad light if they have less than 3 years ?

I would supposed that would at least show that you have had your EP/S pass renewed at least once (e.g., you are reasonable stable with your employment). They need to set some type of OB markers. If they don't, then every TOM, Dick & Harry will apply for PR regardless of whether they want it or not. A lot leave after a year. It's better to make it harder to get. That way, if you really want it then you will persist. Frankly, it's about time.

For all those who are waiting for an outcome...

It's been 1 yr and 4 days since our Citizenship application was submitted. Still awaiting results.
Previously when we applied for PR, it took exactly 1 yr.
So don't worry. It will come when ICA is convinced that you are the right fit (or not).
I know it does get a bit frustrating, but worrying ain't gonna help.

Good luck. But also think about Plan B.
