Welcome back to my blog!, Today, I would like to explain how to declare your income tax online. If you are working in Thailand and you pay income tax every month same as me, you need to file a tax declaration form. This process is mandatory for all people, either Thai or foreigners in Thailand As long as you have source of income in Thailand, you must do it.

Input of type of income and deduction
In this page, you are required to input your source of income and deduction. If you are working in a company then not participating in any program or products that can be used for income tax deduction, you can just click “Income from employment” (top) in income source and Social security fund contribution in deduction side. In addition, your company might provide provident fund program to the employee. In such case, you better click on “Provident fund” (top) in deduction section.
In my case, I purchased Life insurance, SSF and SSFX in 2020 and and purchased some goods with VAT so I also click “Purchase of goods or services (from 23 Oct. 2020 – 31 Dec. 2020)” which is the program that Thai government practiced end of 2020. Up to 30,000 THB purchase of products and service during above period, purchased amount can be used for income tax deduction. Thai government sometimes enforces such law to promote general consumption. To apply for deduction, you will be in need of TAX invoice document from store or service provider to submit as proof.

In this page, you are required to input your Income and withholding tax and your company’s TAX ID number from “Por Ngor Dor1”. After inputting all information, system will calculate the balance after expense deduction (up to 100,000THB) and you and your family’s basic deduction.
