How to make corrections to a transfer tax return in MyTax

You can make corrections to a transfer tax return in MyTax in the following situations:

  • You have filed a transfer tax return in MyTax.
  • You have submitted your transfer tax return on paper. In general, there is always a delay before a return filed on paper becomes available for viewing in MyTax. You must wait for the return to become available in MyTax before you can make corrections.
  • A real estate agent has filed a transfer tax return on the property you have purchased but the return contains an error you want to correct. 

Note: If the entire return is unnecessary, you cannot remove it from MyTax yourself. In such a case, contact the Tax Administration.
