Good afternoon everyone,

Does anyone know whether it is possible to make Bureau of Internal Revenue payments by credit card, either for income taxes or business? Never tried it, would like the airline miles. 😀

Cheers!

I second the yes. You can pay the IRB via credit card. RE taxes also can be paid by credit card. The BIG EXCEPTION is: they won't accept a credit card for payment of taxes (income or real estate) if their credit card phone "thing' isn't working. I have had that happen. It's like -"hey, can't you take down my information by hand and then enter the info into the cc system when your electronic equipment is working"? Answer was no -- daahhh --welcome to paradise.

But most people do like to carry their tax documents with a copy to IRB so that they can have the copy stamped.

Yup, you can pay by credit card. They don't take American Express, just Mastercard and Visa. I HIGHLY recommend that you always have a copy to be stamped. If you mail it, send it with a copy and a self addressed stamped envelope and they will mail it back to you. On St. John, if the 'person' is not in, and the stand in person is there, they wont run a charge. They don't know how to...so you can come back 'later' or have a check 🙂

Called to see if I could give my CC info on the phone. No Go.

They also require that you send a copy of your passport of drivers license (which I consider unsafe and a VERY unnecessary admin burden - another thing for them to file and/or loose)

Took forever for this "more secure" procedure. 4 weeks from my offer of a credit card until they charged my credit card. - they even returned my bill with a stamp.

Whatever they are worried about that precludes processing on the phone - or heaven forbid, on-line, costs more in delay in receipt of funds not to mention administrative time and space to file the stuff.

What is the worst case scenario? I use a stolen card, they find that out and they have to correct my record to unpaid?
