Ready declarations in the Your e-PIT service - since when is it available?
Also this year, taxpayers will be able to submit a PIT declaration using the government service Your e-PIT. In mid-February, declarations drawn up by KAS - PIT-28, PIT-36, PIT-37 and PIT-38 will be made available. The sooner a taxpayer submits an annual PIT tax return to the tax office, the sooner he will receive a tax refund for 2020 - at least theoretically.
Your e-PIT - from when and what declarations?
From February 15, 2021, taxpayers will be able to submit a PIT declaration for 2020 using the special service Your e-PIT. On this day, after logging in, pre-completed PIT declarations for 2020 will be made available to them. When they find that their declarations are completed correctly, they should accept them in the system. The sooner they do it, the sooner they can expect a refund of overpaid tax for 2020.
In the Your e-PIT service, the following declarations will be prepared for taxpayers: PIT-28, PIT-36, PIT-37 or PIT-38. The relevant declaration will include the amount of revenues, costs, tax advances transferred to the tax office by payers in the PIT-11 and PIT-8C information, and the value of social and health insurance contributions.
Your e-PIT - also for entrepreneurs?
Taxpayers running a business and making settlements with the use of PIT-36, PIT-36L and PIT-28 declarations, just like in previous years, will not be able to take advantage of these facilities. They will be responsible for completing the PIT declaration for 2020 on their own. In the Your e-PIT service, the declarations provided will not contain all the data required to send the correct PIT settlement. The declarations of people running a business will not include, inter alia, specification of income on which the entrepreneur himself paid withholding tax in the previous year.
Your e-PIT - faster tax refund
The advantage of submitting a tax declaration electronically using the Your e-PIT service is a shorter period of tax return compared to forms submitted in a traditional form. The tax office is obliged to return the overpaid tax to the taxpayer within a maximum of 45 days from the date of submitting the electronic PIT return.
According to the regulations, the deadline for submitting the e-declaration is counted from February 15, 2021 at the earliest - also if it was sent before that date. A taxpayer who submits an annual tax return on February 15, 2021, will receive a refund of overpaid income tax no later than April 1.
