  1. What is SG xxxxxxx and OG xxxxxx difference? My brother in law was SG xxxxxx last year but this year he received the preprinted BE Form as OG xxxxxxxxx. He is wondering why and we have yet to submit our Income Tax!!

    It used to be high profiled in the media, banners, radio, etc to pay income tax reminder of dateline. I was waiting for the BE Form to come as a reminder and there was no mentioned of it in the newspaper or radio or highlight banner outside the IRB office in town. I thought BN was giving extension of one month to 31 May haha. Really forgotten this time. Last year I submit 1st time vide e-filing. Is that why they did not mail me my form?
    They did not even email a reminder or advertise in media like previous years. Income Tax want to get more income from penalties courtesy of busy people like us who tend to be reminded?? And why need to have password (one a year for e-filing) when the PIN from last year suffice. Even want to do e-filing get road blocked by the PASSWORD. And the challenge doesn’t help even though I key-in my favourite food ie nasi lemak, nothing happens? And my mother’s name? Even I key in correct, nothing happens!! This is cheating. Still have to go IRB tomorrow dateline when I thought I can sneak in after midnight to do e-filing. Damned!!
    Back to my brother in law. He received an EA Form from his employer and the also received an EA Form from his own Sdn Bhd partnership business. Does he have to combine the amount and fill in one BE form or submit as two? Or throw one EA Form away and fill a BE Form. He not yet done e-filing (last day tomorrow) and he received by mail only one BE Form. Thanks!!

  2. I agree that we all need to pay income tax to build and develop the country. In some country where a lot of people people avoid paying tax like Greece and Italy, the country’s economy is in really bad shape. So, as a responsible citizen, we must pay our income tax. However, paying tax is not enough. As a responsible citizen, we must also be alert and monitor how the goverment use our tax money to see if they use it at the right place. If not,our hard-earned tax monet is all wasted.
