In a statement issued today, LHDN stated that the submission of their income tax forms – for forms BE, BT, M, MT, TF, TP, and TJ – can be done manually, whereas forms BE, BT, M, MT, TF, and TP can be done through e-Filing.

“For guidance regarding the submission of the Tax Return Form, taxpayers can refer to the Return Form Filing Program for the Year 2022 which can be accessed and downloaded via the following links: https://phl.hasil.gov.my/pdf/pdfam/ProgramMemfailBN_2022_2.pdf (English version) and https://phl.hasil.gov.my/pdf/pdfam/ProgramMemfailBN_2022_1.pdf (Malay version),” the board said.
