After the latest batch of 574,455 notifications was sent to tax payers on Monday, the number of tax returns in 2011 showing a net liability for more taxes is only 18.47 pct of the total.
Of the 2,221,078 tax notifications mailed to tax-payers so far, 39.74 percent inform them of a tax refund, 41.95 percent show a zero debt and only 18.47 percent asked them to pay additional taxes.

The number of those eligible for a refund is significantly increased relative to previous years, chiefly as a result of a measure that uses sales receipts for goods and services to build up one's tax allowance.
