Filing and amending IR8A is a taxing experience that will never be a simple responsibility.

That is why we designed our 1-click IR8A submission function to now make amendments and the refiling process easy.

Just make sure you edit and resubmit the form by 31 March!

With the deadline in mind, here’s some information you might find useful for IR8A amendment submission.

      Hello Seet Tho, you can head over to ezHASIL website. Thereafter, enter your MyKad NRIC (without the dashes) and key in your password. After logging in, there is a list of features available in e-Filing. For amendment, you can click on e-Application for Amended BE under e-Filing and proceed with the amendment process. 🙂
