Income tax jam

BARBADIANS rushing to beat the April 30 tax filing deadline, including pensioners having challenges with the new system, are likely to get an extension and avoid the $500 penalty.

A well-placed source told the DAILY NATION yesterday the extension should be announced soon.

The move is the result of a host of complaints from taxpayers of being unable to complete the process in the new Tax Administration Management Information System (TAMIS) because of missing information.
