    I don’t know if I had someone who just got out on the wrong side of the bed, but they are not processing same-day anymore. I came in today (Tuesday) and have been told to come back Friday to receive my tax obligation letter… despite my protests, I could not get them to budge, they’re apparently overwhelmed with requests.

    So apparently the IRD has moved out of the IRD building and is now in Kai Tak.

    I went to Kai Tak right after seeing the sign, and it went pretty smoothly! There were not many people in the office (maybe four?) so I did not have to wait in line at all. I ended up not owing anything so I finished it all in one go! They were quite helpful. Overall it took about thirty minutes.

    Great guide! Can anyone help confirm if it would be correct to say that I will need 1 clear day to complete the tax clearing process (in Kai Tak) and this process can be completed before my last day with my employer? Just trying to plan how many days I need after my last day with my employer and before I fly out...thanks.
