VI Bureau of Internal Revenue Excise Tax Portal Seminars Introduce Secure Online Payments

VIBIR-excise-webEffective May 20th 2016, U.S. Virgin Islands taxpayers will have the ability to prepare, submit and pay securely for their Excise Tax (721 VI) returns online. To introduce the community to this new service, the Virgin Islands Bureau of Internal Revenue will be hosting a series of seminars beginning on St. John at the Legislative Annex May 17th, on St. Thomas at the Turnbull Library May 18th, and on St. Croix at the Department of Labor Public Computer Center May 19th. Attendees are invited to bring their own devices to connect to the Internet over Wi-Fi as workstations are limited.

Online Clearance by Credit Card and Tax Exempt 721VIs are now available for Excise Tax.

How will it work:

  • Any registered user of ExciseWeb will be able to complete the clearance process and pay online.
  • From within the ExciseWeb portal, a taxpayer will create & submit any 721 (Tax Returns) they
    would like to pay by credit card or that are considered non-taxable.
  • Once submitted, an Excise Tax Officer will review the 721 (Tax Return) and if there are no
    problems, they will APPROVE the return for clearance.
  • The taxpayer will then receive an alert in their ExciseWeb messaging center informing them that
    there are 721s ready for clearance.
  • The taxpayer will select the 721s they intend to finish the clearance process.
  • The taxpayer will be routed to the verified payment provider where they will be prompted for
    credit card information in order to finalize the clearance.

    • For tax exempt 721s, the clearance will complete the transaction.
      • Visa and MasterCard are acceptable cards
      • Receipts will be provided upon payment completion
      • No fee for your online payments!
      • Quick, easy and most importantly, SECURE
