What if you did not work for a full tax year, or if you were unemployed?

Posted 25 June 2015 under TaxTim's Blog
  1. For individuals who were not employed for a full tax year, which is referred to as a broken tax year, a letter should be issued to Inland Revenue along with a police declaration whereby you declare that you were unemployed for a specific period.

    This will notify Inland Revenue that you did not receive income for a specific period. 

    Please feel to use the below wording for your letter - which you attach to your completed tax return. 

    The Receiver of Revenue
    Private Bag 13185
    Windhoek
    Namibia

    (date)

    Dear Sir/Madam

    TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

    I hereby wish to confirm that I, (full names, ID number) registered for income tax (tax number) was unemployed in Namibia during the period of (insert date) till (insert date of first appointment).

    2. For individuals who were unemployed during a tax year, please note you are still required to submit a tax return. The tax return will be a NIL return, but it should be accompanied with a letter issued to Inland Revenue along with a police declaration whereby you declare that you were unemployed for a specific period. 

    Please feel to use the below wording for your letter - which you attach to your NIL tax return. Just complete the front page of the return and cross though all the section in your return.

    The Receiver of Revenue
    Private Bag 13185
    Windhoek
    Namibia

    (date)

    Dear Sir/Madam

    TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

    I hereby wish to confirm that I, (full names, ID number) registered for income tax (tax number) was unemployed in Namibia during the period of (insert date) till (insert date of first appointment).

    During the said period, I was unemployed.

    If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me at telephone (insert telephone no).
