Singapore Personal Tax
As part of the regulatory requirement by IRAS, all employers are required by law [S68(2) of the Income Tax Act] to prepare IR8A Form, Appendix 8A, Appendix 8B or Form IR8S (where applicable) by 1st Mar of each year for all their employees who are employed by them in Singapore.
Companies that are not on the Auto-Inclusion Scheme (AIS) will have to furnish the IR8A via hard copy to the employees. Even if Companies are on the AIS, employee are still required to check the pre-filled income and file your completed tax return (Form IR8A). If you have other source of income such as rental income to declare, or if you may have other personal reliefs to claim (where applicable), you have to declare it in your tax return as well.
If you have received a letter or SMS from IRAS notifying you of your selection for No-Filing Service (NFS), you will still need to file your income tax if you have additional income to declare or changes on your personal reliefs claim.
The filing of person income is compulsory. It can either submit the hardcopy form or file online via IRAS website myTax.iras.gov.sg. Deadline given to online filing is usually longer.
