Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) will open several offices on Saturdays during the three-month Traffic Ticket Amnesty, beginning this Saturday August 12, to facilitate members of the public paying their outstanding traffic ticket fines.

Tax offices at Constant Spring, Montego Bay, Spanish Town, May Pen, Mandeville, Savanna-la-Mar and St Ann's Bay will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Portmore tax office will continue its regular Saturday opening.

Motorists will be able to utilise the Saturday opening to pay their traffic fines in-line or online using the designated eSpots at any of the listed locations.

Taxpayers are reminded that they must have either the ticket number or the traffic ticket itself to facilitate easy payment either at tax offices or online via the TAJ Portal at www.jamaicatax.gov.jm.

Employers filing their monthly statutory deductions (S01) for the month of July will also be able to use the Saturday convenience ahead of the August 14 due date.

All usual weekday services, including the renewal of driver's licences, will be accessible. However, audit and compliance activities will not be available during the Saturday operation.

In addition to the opening this Saturday, persons may opt to do business on Saturday August 19, 26, September 30 and on the last two Saturdays of the amnesty, October 21 and 28.
