The Inland Revenue Board (LHDN) today announced a series of extensions for taxpayers and employers affected by the recent floods which hit areas in eight states, causing the evacuation of tens of thousands and huge losses to individuals and businesses alike.

In a statement, it said the deadline for the payment of estimated tax payable (CP204) for December 2021 has been extended to Jan 31, 2022.

The payment of investigation/audit/collection/civil suit instalments for January 2022 meanwhile has been deferred to February 2022.

Likewise, the deadline for the payment of schedular tax deductions (PCB) or CP38 by employees for the remuneration month of December 2021 has been extended to Jan 31, 2022.

LHDN also said that the payment of the remaining tax could be deferred until a period requested by the taxpayer.

The floods last week hit Selangor the hardest, with many in areas like Shah Alam stranded in their homes as water levels reached roof level.

The deluge has left at least 48 people dead and a number of others still missing.

Taxpayers and employers affected by the floods can apply through email to [email protected] for the first matter, and through the feedback form available at the official HASiL portal.

LHDN said the documents needed for applications will depend on the merit of each case.
