The Inland Revenue Board (LHDN) has urged all taxpayers to check their tax arrears and travel restriction status before making any travel plans to go abroad.
In a statement, LHDN explained that travel restrictions are imposed as a final resort when taxpayers fail to pay their outstanding taxes, even after various reminders and notices have been sent to them. Accordingly, all taxpayers can check the amount of their tax arrears (if any) via the MyTax portal, and their travel restrictions on the Immigration Department website.
Taxpayers who have tax arrears are requested to make the necessary payments as soon as possible so that their travel restrictions can be lifted; payments can be done via several channels, including ByrHASiL, online banking with selected banks, as well as auto teller machines (ATMs) and cash/cheque deposit machines (CDMs) at selected banks. Alternatively, they can also contact the LHDN office that handles their tax files to negotiate for instalment payments, enabling them to proceed with their travels.
If you have any queries regarding this matter, you can reach out to LHDN via its HASiL Careline at 03-8911 1000 or 603-8911 1100 (overseas). You can also use the HASiL Live Chat, or submit a feedback form via LHDN’s Feedback website.
