The below tax deduction list will aid you in submitting your 2017 personal income tax (PND90, 91). The submission window is open from 1 January 2018 – 31 March 2018.

We recommend our clients that preparations should be made in a timely fashion and the filings should be submitted by the end of next month.

When you file your returns, the correct taxable income has to be reported. This includes any income from a source in Thailand (in particular related to your Thai employment), regardless of where it was paid in or if you’re a resident of Thailand. Hard copies of personal income tax returns must be filed with the Revenue Department by March 31, while e-filing can be done up to April 9.
