Understand Your Income Sources
First of all, we should understand the type of our income source. As an employee, we get our salary paid monthly. This is category as employment income under Section 4 (b) of Income Tax Act 1967 and we need to declare Form BE to Inland Revenue Board Malaysia.

Government also give us extra15 days (15th May)to submit our income tax return form. In short, we are required to submit and settle everything before 15th May including income tax payable payment.
Before submiting our income tax return form, we should get two things prepared on our hand.

- Tax relief documents (If any)
What? Wait a second, how come it's involved so many forms and all form sounds the same? Yes, once something is related to money, it will become complex. Form EA is a "summary statement" for your annual salary in a company. Usually we pronounce as "EA Form". Such form was prepared by your HR Department or Admin. This is because as early as March, your company was submitted a Form E to Inland Revenue Board Malaysia (IRB). So we may request our Form EA from our HR Department.
If you quit your job mid-year, you may request your Form EA from your ex-company during next year income tax declaration.
Next, we should get our tax relief documents prepared. For instance, our insurance premium statement, official receipt of our lifestyle relief, medical checkup official receipt and etc.We are required to keep sufficient records for a period of SEVEN years.This is because we have to prepare our documentation and related prove when income tax officer tax audit us.
