Given the containment measures imposed by the coronavirus, the Minister of Action and Public Accounts has announced the postponement of the launch of the income tax return campaign by about ten days. Thus, the online income tax return service for 2019 will only be open from 20 April instead of 9 April as initially agreed.
In addition, as every year, the deadline for online declarations depends on the zone where the tax household is located. Our firm has a deadline for professionals set for 11 June 2020, whereas the deadlines are normally set for 4 June for departments 0 to 19 and non-residents; 8 June for departments 20 to 54 and 11 June for departments 54 to 974/976.
Similarly, paper returns, which usually have a mid-May filing deadline, may this year be filed by 12 June 2020.
