Joel A. Lee, CPA, director of the Virgin Islands Bureau of Internal Revenue, has provided extended hours for the filing of tax returns. On Saturday, April 13, taxpayers can file returns and pay taxes owed between the hours of 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on St. Thomas at the Red Hook location and on St. Croix at the Sunny Isles office.

The hours of operation for tax day on Monday, April 15, will be extended for the convenience of the taxpayers. The Bureau of Internal Revenue offices on St. Thomas (Red Hook and Nisky) and St. Croix (Sunny Isles) are open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. The St. John office will remain open until 5 p.m.

Taxpayers who are unable to file their 2023 returns by the due date are reminded that they can file an extension by using Form 4868. To obtain approval of the extension, the taxpayer must properly estimate the tax liability due and file Form 4868 no later than April 15. The extension is only for the filing of the tax return. Taxpayers who owe taxes must pay the tax due on April 15 to avoid the failure to pay the penalty. The extension will be granted until October 15, 2024.

Questions concerning the extended office hours can be directed to the Processing Division at 715-1040, extension 2223.
