BIR Urges Taxpayers to Pick Up Re-issued Income Tax Checks

June 12, 2009 – Virgin Islands taxpayers are reminded that the reissued May 28 income tax refund checks are available for pick up from the Bureau of Internal Revenue offices on all three islands. Taxpayers are asked to bring one photo ID with proof of their social security number in order to claim the reissued checks, according to a press release from the Office of the Governor. They are also reminded to return the incorrect check to the Bureau’s offices if they haven’t already done so.
“Taxpayers who have already negotiated the incorrect refund check are urged to contact the Bureau immediately to make arrangements to repay any overpayment. Those taxpayers who may have already cashed a check for an amount less than was owed are also asked to contact the Bureau for additional instructions,” said BIR Director Claudette Watson-Anderson.
The staff is available to address both taxpayer situations on a priority basis. Questions should be directed to the Bureau’s processing branch at 715-1040, ext. 4221 on St. Croix or ext. 2257 on St. Thomas, or 777-1446 on St. John.
