Under the Self-Assessment System, tax audits are an important tool for the Inland Revenue Board to ensure taxpayers report tax liabilities in a fair and accurate manner. Tax payers face heavy penalties if they are found to have filed incorrect income tax returns. It is important for tax payers and tax agents to be fully aware of the legislative and other requirements pertaining to tax audits and investigations in order to avoid HEAVY PENALTIES.
