St. Thomas quarantine impacts Morant Bay tax office

August 10, 2020

Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) has advised persons that the Morant Bay Tax Office will be closed from Monday, August 10, 2020, for fourteen days as part of the COVID-19 quarantine measures imposed by the Ministry of Health in the Church Corner area in the parish of St. Thomas.

The quarantine measure forms part of the Government’s response strategies to the growing number of confirmed cases in several communities in the parish.

The closure of the Morant Bay Tax Office means that taxpayers, outside of the quarantined communities, are advised to visit the Port Morant Tax Office or any Tax Office convenient to them to conduct their usual tax transactions.

"TAJ is reminding customers that several services may be accessed online at, such as paying property tax, motor vehicle certificate of fitness fees, traffic ticket, as well as the filing and payment of monthly payroll taxes and fees that will be due on August 14. Additionally application for Tax Compliance Certificate will only be accepted online," a statement from the TAJ read.

Tax Administration Jamaica says it regrets the inconvenience that may be caused by the closure of the Morant Bay Tax Office.
