Who is entitled to the Government’s tax refund?

You might be one of the 200,000 people and more who will be receiving a cheque by post as a tax refund if you registered with Jobsplus as a full-time, part-time or self-employed employee last year.

A spokesperson for the Ministry of Finance explained that the cheques shall be distributed by the 7th of September by MaltaPost, in no particular order.

This was announced last Wednesday by Minister of Finance, Edward Scicluna. 

When asked whether pensioners are also entitled to this tax refund, the Minister explained that it would not be possible since pensions were increased by €2 every week apart from the increase of COLA. These additions cost €8 million and 90,000 pensioners are benefitting from this.

A spokesperson from the Ministry explained that the payment will be calculated according to every individual’s wage.
