Individual tax refunds – Cheques to be sent by registered Mail

Georgetown, Thursday, 3 August 2017: The Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) wishes to advise individual taxpayers that the Authority is currently processing refunds for this group of taxpayers commencing from the Year of Assessment 2010 to 2017.

This is in keeping with the law, and the Authority’s promise made earlier this year to reduce refund backlogs, thereby allowing employees and other individual taxpayers who have tax refunds pending for a number of years to receive their refunds within 2017.

Based on past experiences with issuing refunds via registered post, taxpayers - business persons and employees/ individuals alike - are advised to inform the Revenue Authority of any change to their business and or individual (home) addresses. Failure to do so may result in the likelihood of mail going to incorrect addresses and/or being returned to GRA. The GRA wishes to assure taxpayers that updating their contact information will come at no cost.

Anyone desirous of further information on tax refund cheques can contact the GRA’s Finance Division on 227-6060, 227-8222 extensions: 4504 or 4508.
