Tax filers with mailing addresses will receive their checks in the mail, while those without mailing addresses can pick up their checks at theTreasury Disbursing Office on the ground floor of the A.P. Lutali Executive Office Building — where social distancing and wearing a face mask is encouraged.

A total of 432 taxpayers are covered in the 4th batch.

If you are expecting a tax refund and did not receive it, visit the Tax Office and have the following documents on hand so that the Tax Office can provide service expeditiously:

• copy of your tax return

• a valid form of identification

• social security card — and also for the spouse if married filing jointly.
