No Jersey tax reminders 'saved £9,000'

Jersey's tax office says it has saved £9,000 by not sending out reminders to islanders to return tax forms.

David Le Cuirot, from the tax office, said: "We decided this year in order to save on postage costs, because postage has increased significantly, to use the media instead.

"We spend approximately £10,000 on postage to send out personal reminders, so we have saved approximately £9,000."

The deadline for returning tax forms is 1800 BST on Friday, 27 May.

It is the eighth year that the income tax department has charged a fine of up to £250 for anyone not returning their tax form by the deadline.
