BIR Updates Public on Availability of 2018 Tax Year Filing Forms

Internal Revenue Service

Marvin L. Pickering, EA, PHR, acting director of the Virgin Islands Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR), informs the taxpaying public that certain income tax return forms for Tax Year (TY) 2018 have not yet been received as a result of the partial federal government shutdown.

The IRS has advised BIR that Virgin Islands residents and businesses may order limited quantities of tax forms, instructions and publications needed to complete 2018 and subsequent tax returns at their website: Orders for larger quantities may be obtained by calling the IRS at 800-829-3676. Orders will process and ship by U.S. mail when the products become available and should arrive within 10 business days.

Taxpayers with questions about tax forms availability should contact Beverly Hermon Beck, federal disclosure officer, at 773-1040, ext. 4215 or Audrey Delemos, U.S. claims officer, at 773-1040, ext. 2228.
