So, how to 矬�le income tax? Taxpayers can start submitting their income tax return forms through the e-Filing system starting from March 1 of every year,
unless otherwise announced by LHDN. This method of e-矬�ling is becoming popular among taxpayers for its simplicity and user-friendliness.

Unlike the traditional income tax 矬�ling, where you have to print out the income tax form and 矬�ll it in manually, the e-Filing income tax form calculates
your income tax for you automatically. So, questions like “how to calculate my income tax” will not be stopping you from getting your income tax returns.

Filing your tax through e-Filing also gives you more time to 矬�le your taxes, as opposed to the traditional method of 矬�ling, where the deadline is usually on
April 30.
