KINGSTON, Jamaica – The Tax Administration Jamaica (TAJ) has advised that the Port Maria tax office will be closed today, November 12 until further notice, due to flooding experienced over the weekend.

The extent of the situation is being assessed by a team from its management services division and a determination will then be made on when it will reopen, TAJ said in a release Monday morning.

In the meantime the public is being advised to use the Annotto Bay or St Ann’s Bay Revenue Service Centre as an alternative.  

TAJ is also reminding that the filing and payment of the major tax types, as well as traffic ticket fines may be done through the Jamaica Tax Portal at the website www.jamaicatax.gov.jm.

A stationary front affected the island over the weekend producing heavy rains and causing flooding in St Mary.

Among the worst affected areas are Port Maria, Oracabessa and section of Junction in the vicinity of Georgia, the Office of Disaster Preparedness Emergency Management said.
