The Federal Revenue has extended the deadline for reporting the Income Tax Return

Taxpayer now has until May 31 to comply with the tax obligation

The Federal Revenue published in the Official Gazette on this Monday, April 12, the RFB Normative Instruction 2020, which changed the deadline for reporting the Annual Adjustment Statement of the Individual’s Income Tax Return for 2021. The deadline was extended from April 30 to May 31, 2021.

The extension of the deadline is a way to ease the difficulties imposed by the coronavirus pandemic on citizens, according to the tax agency.

In this same sense, the deadlines for filing the Statement of Final Estate and the Definitive Country Exiting Statement, as well as the payment of the tax related to the statements, were also extended to 31 May.

Income tax return schedule

The RFB also informed that the Income Tax return schedule was maintained. Thus, the first lot will be paid on May 31, and the last on September 30.

The schedule is divided into five lots:

1st lot: May 31, 2021

2nd lot: June 30, 2021

3rd lot: July 30, 2021

4th lot: August 31, 2021

5th lot: September 30, 2021
