KUALA LUMPUR: The reduction of road tax, which was to take effect on June 1, can only be done automatically on June 24 after the Road Transport Department computerised system is updated.
JPJ director-general Datuk Ahmad Mustapha Abdul Rashid said until then, vehicle owners would have to pay the tax at the original rates and then apply for reimbursement from JPJ offices starting June 23.
“Vehicle owners or their representatives can apply for reimbursement by providing documents like copies of bank statements, copies of their identity cards and form JPJ K6,” he said in a statement yesterday.
Form JPJ K6 can be obtained from all JPJ offices or downloaded from the JPJ website at www.jpj.gov.my
. The reimbursements would be credited into their bank accounts, it added.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi had announced that motorists would be given cash rebates and lower road tax to help them cushion the 41% hike in petrol and 63.3% hike in diesel prices.
