Kindly, note that tax returns can be submitted at the nearest Domestic Taxes offices across the country and at Customs & Excise stations at Chitipa, Nsanje, Mwanza, Liwonde, Chiponde and Muloza. Failure to submit a tax return when due is an offence punishable by the Taxation VAT Act and the VAT Act.
