  • Utilize the MyTax e-filing portal for a hassle-free tax submission experience.
  • Ensure all personal and income details are accurate to avoid delays or errors in your tax filing.
  • Be mindful of the May 15 deadline to avoid penalties for late submission.

As the May 15 deadline for filing personal income tax returns approaches, many Malaysians are turning to the Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia's (LHDN) MyTax e-filing portal to complete this annual obligation. The process can be daunting for first-timers or those who need a refresher. This comprehensive guide will walk you through the process, ensuring you meet the deadline and comply with LHDN's requirements.

The MyTax e-filing portal is an online platform that facilitates the submission of personal income tax returns. It's designed to streamline the tax filing process, making it more efficient and user-friendly. The system not only allows for the submission of tax forms but also helps taxpayers to claim refunds on overpaid income tax.

Registration and Login

For those who are new to the system, the first step is to register for an account on the MyTax e-filing portal at mytax.hasil.gov.my. Upon visiting the site, you'll need to choose the type of ID for the portal and proceed with the registration process. It's crucial to have all your personal information on hand, including your full name, Tax Identification Number (TIN), citizenship status, marital status, birth date, and identification card number.

Filling Out Your Income Details

Once registered, you'll be directed to the income page, where you must fill in details such as statutory income, the number of employers, and monthly tax deductions. These are listed in the EA form provided by employers. In 2023, Malaysians who have just obtained new employment will be required to ensure that they have a form from each of their employers in order to successfully complete their electronic filing.

Declaration and Submission

The final step involves the declaration page, where you confirm the accuracy of the information provided. After reviewing all the details, you can sign and submit the form electronically. It's imperative to ensure that all information is accurate and in order before submission, as any errors can lead to complications with your tax filing.

Filing your income tax returns online with LHDN is a straightforward process if you follow the steps carefully. With the deadline set for May 15, it's important to start early to ensure you have ample time to gather all necessary documents and information. By taking advantage of the MyTax e-filing portal, you can fulfill your tax obligations efficiently and accurately. Remember, "for those who have been putting it off and may need a refresher, or first-timers fresh out of school at their first job, here’s a guide along with some tips to get through it". Don't wait until the last minute—ensure you're prepared and file your income tax returns on time.
