Normally you should get paper mail with your tax assessment. However, this will essentially just be a print-out of the assessment you can view online through the mytax portal. And, well, the post here is not 100%, so things can get lost sometimes. The tax assessment also has a deadline on it, if you care to read it. I think payment within 30 or 60 days of assessment date, if I am not mistaken.Steve1960 wrote:I submitted my tax return for 2012, I opened an IRAS on line account and back around (probably) end July / beginning August I saw the final tax assessment amount on line.
I then did nothing, just waited for the formal tax invoice to arrive in the post. It didn't and although the money was sitting in the bank waiting to be paid I did nothing. I was lazy.
I still didn't receive any communication by email or post from IRAS but on 28th November my bank advised they were withholding money at the request of the tax office and sure enough when I looked at my account on line it showed as a unavailable funds.
This was my first tax payment so my question is, is this normal? For the tax office to send no letters or invoices. Its all paperless here? I know I was lazy I admit it but I still think I should have received some kind of written correspondence.
