As everybody known, e-Filing is an online system introduced by LHDN that allows you to submit your income tax online, which is an alternative to the manual form submission. Although e-Filing has undergone a progressive improvement but it still not yet fully robust free. The issue that I discovered was when you click on ‘setuju’ to submit the form, you will not have chance to re-edit and modify your form details anymore.


You can see that around 1.5 million Malaysian taxpayers have used LHDN e-filing system this year and more are expected to do so for coming year. So, just imagine how many potential victims are there! So, i suggest our government should take a quick action to address the issues and resolved it in timely manner.

  1. The LHDN officials did come to our office to explain that we must ensure everything is correct before submission of e-filing. Or else, we have to pay a visit to respective LHDN office for adjustment. It is really so troublesome. That is the reason why I took more than a hour to fill up e-filing to ensure that every detail is correct before I click the button.

  2. They should consider setting up something that will enable tax payers to re-submit their tax returns should there be an error in the 1st copy. On-line of course. Without all the hassle of having to see them face to face.

  3. David,

    In your next enquiry email, ask the officer why is re-submission with latest & correct data not allowed ? See what’s the response. :p
