The Montego Bay Revenue Service Centre reopened today (June 20) but is only offering limited services from 8:30 am to noon until further notice.

These limited services include collections (cashiering services), renewal of drivers’ licence, substitute driver’s licence, provisional driver’s licence, new driver’s licence, drivers’ licence collection, purchasing of green and red plates, property tax query and Stamp Duty processing.

The adjusted arrangements have become necessary as Tax Administration of Jamaica (TAJ) and the property owner continue to work together to address a malfunctioning air conditioning system, which has significantly affected customer service delivery at the location since last week.

During this period of limited service, TAJ is reminding tax payers that they may opt to visit the Falmouth, Lucea, Darliston or St Ann’s Bay tax offices to conduct their usual transactions, the operations of which, will be bolstered by redeployed staff of the MoBay Revenue Centre.

Additionally, at the authority’s Bay West location (open from 8:30 am to 3:00 pm), taxpayers can conduct several transactions including TRN application, motor vehicle partial transfer (sign out of title), as well as get taxpayer education support.

Please note that for partial motor vehicle transfers, customers should have the motor vehicle title in hand (no arrears) with motor vehicle registration and certificate of fitness.

Taxpayers are also reminded that several transactions may be conducted using TAJ’s tax portal at, these include filing, payment, property tax querying, traffic ticket and certificate of fitness fee payment.

TAJ apologises for any inconvenience caused, as its service provider works assiduously to rectify the issue in the shortest possible time.
