Abstract: The introduction of e-Filing system by the Malaysian government has been seemed as a solution to problems that arose due to the use of paper-based income tax filing. The number of taxpayers submitting their Income Tax Return Forms through e-Filing is increasing every year. However, this does not eliminate the need for the Inland Revenue Board Malaysia (IRBM) personnel to pay regular visits to the night market venues in order to assess the eligibility of the night market hawkers to pay tax, and the amount they should be charged. This has been exacerbated by the practice of the hawkers who do not always keep their business record in a systematic manner; most still employ traditional way of keeping the amount of their revenue and expenditure in books or pile of papers. This paper presents the requirement model for My Bazaar Tax, a mobile-based application which is developed as a single platform for the night market hawkers to keep their business records. At the same time, My Bazaar Tax apps will also make the process easy for the IRBM personnel to gather tax-related information from the hawkers. The methodology used in this study consists of four phases: requirement gathering; requirement modeling; prototyping and evaluation. UML notation is used in modeling the requirements through the use of use cases, sequence diagram and class diagram. The model presented in this paper could be used as a reference model for developers in developing similar apps to cater the needs of other small business operators.
