Online tax return troubleshooting

Find help to solve the most common issues with completing your online return.

​Issue
​Solution
​​Tax return not saved as expected
​When you save your return you'll be automatically sent an email with a link in it. When you come back to complete the form make sure you access it by clicking on the link in the email. Alternatively click on the history tab on your onegov account.

Don't use the 'File your return' link on this page or the 'Personal income tax return' link on your onegov account because it will start the return again and you'll lose your previous progress. 
​We've been unable to match you with a Tax Identification Number (TIN) message displayed
​If you're the primary taxpayer please contact Revenue Jersey on +44 (0) 1534 440300. You'll need to give us your title, full name including any middle names, date of birth, JY number and an email to contact you.

We deal with these as quickly as we can.

If you're not the primary taxpayer you can't complete the online return.
​Completing someone else's tax return

You can't complete the return for someone else.​

You can only complete your return as the 'primary taxpayer' using the identity you logged in with.

Primary taxpayer information for married couples and civil partners
​​Reviewing the return before submitting it

​​To review what you've entered use the 'back' button at the bottom left hand side of each page.

Once you have submitted the return you get a confirmation email and a pdf copy of the return. You can also see a history of all your forms under the history tab of your onegov account.

​Can't see all the information entered
Some sections in the form (for example property income) are too large to display in a simple view. These boxes have a scroll bar underneath which you can move left to right to see all the information.
​Nowhere to add extra comments
The tax return has been designed to gather all the information we need to assess your tax with most cases going through automatically without an officer review. If you need to tell us anything else, send it separately to Revenue Jersey.

Completing your return correctly

Documents

You should have all your tax paperwork to hand when you complete your return. This may include:

  • payslips
  • pension advice letters
  • receipts for tax deductible expenses
  • bank statements
  • loan interest certificates
  • your child's social security number
  • childcare certificates
You don't submit the paperwork with your return, but you should keep it for 6 years in case you're asked to supply the supporting information.

Checking your return

All your income and claims for deductions or allowances must be true, complete and correct.

Before you submit your return check the following:

  • you've completed the section about residency correctly 
  • you've ticked the box if you're married or in a civil partnership and claiming the married / civil partnership exemption threshold
  • the income you are declaring is correct (for example if you're employed your taxable income should be the same as the gross taxable income figure on your payslips)
  • you've declared all your taxable income (for example in addition to employment income you also had income from renting a room in your own home)
  • you're only claiming expenses that you are entitled to claim (for example if you're self-employed don't claim for anything which is for your own personal use and therefore not a business expense)
  • you're only claiming allowances you are entitled to claim (for example if you're claiming child allowance you have a child you're entitled to claim)

Complete your return carefully. If you have been careless or deliberately concealed income from us you will get a penalty.
