In a statement, Abu Ali explained that payers who submit their tax returns with accurate information are immediately accepted and receive tax reimbursements electronically within a few days after filing.

The AI system has been implemented for first-year taxpayers, and its primary goal is to facilitate the disbursement of tax reimbursements and the audit of returns.

Abu Ali emphasized that tax payers should not wait until the April 30, 2023 deadline to file tax returns, given the considerable pressure placed on the tax website and services.
