I had a meeting today with some Respectable People in the Taxation field and updated them on the details of info I posted recently. They also filled me in on the process and progress achieved by LHDN. It is also noted that the DG is very well respected and dedicated to make LHDN an efficient and progressive department in the eyes of the Industry and Public. Problems and glitches are taken seriously and suggestions for a better, more efficient and user friendly system are well noted.

As you can see there's a difference with e-Filing 2005 and e-Filing 2006. Many Taxation companies know this and are supporting this initiative. Upgrades to accomodate new features were added and one of them was to save your Form before submitting for later review as this is a required feature for Tax service providers. I hope there will be more upgrades and features for Year 2007 as the people are more well verse with it and lots can be accomplished here.

Update on the events taken place on 7th & 8th April 2007. I login during the weekends to look into what happened and I must note what was experienced during that 2 days did not repeat at all now. After many clicks and refreshes its STILL OK! as it should be.

The only difference or anomaly would be the IC field. During that 2 days the IC field would be blank after I click continue and I had to re-fill in that line again. Even Windows autofill was not available which is normally there after I had filled numbers or words.

I am sorry for not being able to note this anomaly to Trevor when he asked me to discribe step by step what I did as I didn't know it could or might have been something weird. Now it is no longer blank and is locked from any editing. I verified this with another person's account and it now saves and refreshes to the next page as was intended. And for those that asked me why there's no IC no. filled now I presume is explained.

Whoever encounters this please to notify Najlah Ishak (Public Relations Officer) LHDNM 03-6201 2344/019-222 0034 or drop me a note so it can be forwarded to the persons I met today. They will be in better position than me to highlight any matters to the DG.

It is good to know that this is resolved and I am able to submit my Tax Returns via the e-Filing system. Here are some important guidelines as it runs on Active-X and Microsoft Windows 2000/XP and Internet Explorer. Please avoid other browsers and you need latest service packs as well.

Please do take time to view through some of these info here:

And do fill in this questionaire to enable LHDN to better understand our needs:

P/S: I was assured LHDN would not stoop so low to the point of poison letters and special branches. They are dedicated just like what Trevor said in his post. It is also not right to quote their name in any mails to create fear and stop people from commenting.

I receive a "Run time error 5-invalid procedure call or argument" message.

You can download and install Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1 from, which updates many Microsoft files to resolve the error 5.


First, please follow these instructions to update your Microsoft Data Access Components:

1. Go to this Microsoft website:

For Windows 95, 98, NT4:

Download and install MDAC 2.5

For Windows ME, 2000, or XP:

Download and install MDAC 2.6

Once there, select the English version of the file from the list, and click Download.

Choose the Save to Disk option, and at the Save As, under Save In: choose Desktop - the top choice.

After the download is complete, close all programs.

Double click the downloaded file to update your Microsoft Data Access Components.

If you are running Windows 2000, please follow these instructions to resolve a known problem with that OS:

Log into Windows as the "Administrator" of the local machine.

Close all applications.
Choose Start, Run, and input this command:
regsvr32 "c:\program files\common files\system\ole db\oledb32.dll"

Upon clicking OK, Windows will indicate that the process succeeded. Click OK.

Restart your computer and then launch HistoryKill 2005.

If the error still persists, you will need to update your Visual Basic Run Time components in Windows:

Download vbrun60sp3.exe from and save it to your Desktop.

After downloading, close all programs on your system.

Double click the downloaded file, vbrun60sp3.exe to install.

Restart your computer and launch HistoryKill 2005.

Thanks for the update and your contribution to make e-filling workable. They should give you extra tax-deduction-lah for helping LHDN patch their glitches kekeke.

If only we have more pro-active blogger/citizens like yourself then Malaysia Memang Boleh! bro.


Jovis Low said...

I not sure whether I got MDAC 2.6 in my Windows XP SP 2 or not.

But one thing I can sure is my IE is version 6.0 with SP 2.

I will try tonight and get back to you for the result.

Thank you very much.

I would suggest that you take a look at your language should ensure that your language is set to english.

If you need anymore assistance with e-Filing, you might look at coming over to We have forums and other information relating to doing your taxes.
