According to this Act, the previous provision of Section 63 of the Revenue Code has been repealed and superseded by the new provision which stipulates that if a withholding tax is made against any person’s income and remitted in an amount exceeding that is required by the Revenue Code, a claim for refund must be submitted within 3 years from the date of the original deadline of the tax return. However, if such person is not required to file a tax return in that tax year, a claim for refund must be submitted within 3 years from 31 March of the year following the year in which the tax was deducted.

The previous provision provides that the claim for a refund of over-withheld tax must be submitted within 3 years from the last date of the year in which the tax was deducted.
