Be wary of tax refund messages, public told

PETALING JAYA: The Inland Reve­nue Board (IRB) has advised the public to be cautious when responding to SMS and e-mail messages, especially those claiming that the recipient owes money or is entitled to a tax refund
IRB chief executive officer Datuk Hasmah Abdullah said with the increasing number of Malaysians expected to file tax returns electronically this year, it was important for the public to keep their information secure.
“IRB has deployed a comprehensive security infrastructure for its electronic services and is using the public-and-private key encryption system for the services.
“Nevertheless, be cautious when responding to such messages,” she said in a statement yesterday. She said to authenticate a user’s identity, the board had implemented the use of the Digital Signature through Public Key Infrastructure.
She added as at end of last year, 1.6 million Malaysian taxpayers hade registered for the e-filing services.
She said that with less than two days left for taxpayers to submit their tax returns for assessment year 2009, more than 1.15 million had done so.
