Taxpayers can begin filing their taxes for the year of assessment 2022 (YA2022) through e-Filing starting from 1 March 2023, the Inland Revenue Board (LHDN) reminded. This includes those who are submitting income tax forms BE, B, M, BT, MT, P, TF, TP, and E.
In its statement, LHDN clarified that taxpayers can access the e-Filing system through the official HASiL portal (where they can then log in to MyTax to access e-Filing), or directly via the MyTax website. Alternatively, they can also use the MyTax mobile app. Meanwhile, tax agents are urged to use the TAeF service.
Aside from that, LHDN said that registered taxpayers who are logging in to the e-Filing system for the first time must obtain a PIN beforehand through MyTax. To do so, log in to your MyTax account, after which you can opt to either go through the eKYC process (mobile) or submit the e-CP55D form (MyTax portal); go ahead and follow the prompts that pop up, then submit any relevant information or verification documents as required.
LHDN further reminded that all receipts, invoices, and other relevant documents must be kept as record and for future reference for at least seven years, as required under Section 82 and 82A in the Income Tax Act 1967. This is to facilitate any future enquiries made by LHDN, in case more clarification is deemed necessary.
Other than filing your taxes, taxpayers can also use MyTax to pay their taxes, as well as access e-Lejar and monthly tax deduction (PCB) information, said LHDN.
Taxpayers who have any queries or encounter difficulties during the tax filing process can check the guide that is provided within their MyTax account. They can also call the HASiL Careline at 03-8911 1000 (within Malaysia) or 603-8911 1100 (overseas), or reach out through the HASiL Live Chat feature. If you prefer in-person assistance, feel free to also make your way to any LHDN customer service centres nearby.
Malaysia’s tax season typically begins on 1 March every year, with the deadline for resident individuals usually falling on 30 April (offline channels) or 15 May (e-Filing). Detailed information regarding the tax filing timeline for YA2022 (in 2023), specifically, can be found on LHDN’s official website here (in English and Malay).
