BR1M experience

Leave a comment


In december last year I was enlisted to help the Bantuan Rakyat 1Malaysia (BR1M) exercise here in Kuantan. Initially I was stationed at Pulau Tioman, but due to adverse weather condition I was reassigned to Bukit Serok, an aborigine settlement at Rompin. It is a small orang asli village located some 40 km from Muadzam Shah and 140 km from Kuantan.

I have no problem on working outstation since it’s december. I’ve been a tax officer for four years and december for me it’s the slowest time of the year.

I’ve discovered that Bukit Serok is actually a resettlement village. When Felda or Felcra want to open an settlement they’ll relocated some family to this new settlement. This is what happen with Bukit Serok. Although it is a small village dominated with orang asli, you may find small number of Malay, Chinese and Indian family live here.

At this village time is almost still. It is so quiet and peaceful I like it so much. I am a guy who can’t stand the life city. I’ve discovered this when I just started with my job about four years ago. Come saturday and I’m become restless and itching to run away from Kuantan. I started to wander randomly and try to find any small village especially close to beach so I can relax.

So discovering Bukit Serok is a very quiet place is a pleasent surprise for me. I like the warm and always smiling village folks. Their friendliness is something I cherish. It’s a very contrasting from city folks.

Since it’s a small village we’re only busy on 10th December, the very first day BR1M form is distributed. After that there’s only small number of applicants come to get or submit the form.

Here are some pictures from my experince in this BR1M programme for you to enjoy.

Awak hutang saya…

1 Comment


When you as a taxpayer have monthly tax deduction exceeding tax charge, you are entitled for a refund.

Usually when I met a taxpayer requesting for a refund he or she usually say it like this “Awak hutang saya bla bla bla”.

Now that I’m not a genius or something but honestly for me, using word like “hutang” or anything similar to describe that LHDN is “berhutang” to you in incorrect. I’m not someone good to explain it so I’ll use an analogy:

Suppose that you went shopping with your wife or husband at grocery/supermarket/hypermarket(or whatever you call it) and your total purchase is RM269. You don’t have an exact RM269 bill so you give the cashier RM300  and the cashier has to give you RM31 change back. Are you going to tell the cashier “Awak hutang saya RM31”?

Of course not. Same thing applies to tax refund. Hope you understand =)

Emel scam melibatkan LHDNM

Leave a comment


Baru-baru ini(minggu lepas) muncul kes penghantaran emel palsu(scam) oleh pihak tidak bertanggungjawab yang cuba untuk menipu penerima emel dengan memberi impression bahawa penerima ada lebihan bayaran didalam akaun cukai pendapatan. Ternyata ini adalah satu cubaan jahat pihak yang cuba mengambil kesempatan. Kes scamming sudah mula melibatkan jabatan dan agensi kerajaan. Nampaknya scammer makin bijak dan berani.

Aku sendiri ada menerima panggilan daripada taxpayer mengadu menerima emel daripada tax-payment@hasil.gov.my mengatakan beliau ada lebihan bayaran cukai pendapatan sebanyak RM700. Kalau ada diantara korang menerima emel macam ni, JANGAN BUKA, padam(delete) sahaja. Itu scam!

LHDNM ada mengeluarkan kenyataan media. Korang boleh check di website LHDNM.

Untuk pengetahuan korang, LHDNM tidak menghantar apa-apa makluman mengenai lebihan bayaran kepada pembayar cukai dalam bentuk emel. LHDNM akan maklumkan melalui pos. Ternyata cara “old skool” lebih selamat walaupun sedikit memakan masa.

URL di emel scam tersebut adalah seperti dibawah.

Manakala URL rasmi LHDNM adalah http://www.hasil.gov.my

Membezakan URL internet banking CIMBClicks dengan URL scam(tipu).

  1. URL sebenar ada “https” dan lambang mangga kunci di hujung bar URL nya.

  1. Manakala URL scam tiada “https” dan tiada lambang mangga kunci di hujung bar URL. Kalau korang klik di link URL scam, melayang la duit-duit korang dalam akaun bank tuh! Jadi berhati-hati!

Setting bagi internet banking bagi bank-bank lain adalah sama. Pastikan ada “https” dan ada simbol mangga kunci. Jadi untuk keselamatan korang patut taip sendiri URL tersebut, jangan klik melalui link.

Disclaimer : Pandangan diatas adalah pendapat peribadi saya sahaja. Ianya tidak mewakili pendapat LHDNM dan saya tidak menerima apa-apa bayaran daripada keterangan diatas. Cuma menjalankan tanggungjawab dan cuba memberi kesedaran serta peringatan kepada anda.
