The Senate is expected to vote on PL 639/2021 this Tuesday, which extends the deadline for filing income tax returns. The text has already passed through the Chamber of Deputies and depends on Senate approval and Federal Government sanction.
Currently, the declaration deadline is April 30th. If approved, the PL changes that date to the next July 31st.
The project under analysis maintains the Income Tax refund calendar starting in May. Last year, parliamentarians had already approved a similar project. At the time, they extended the tax declaration period by 60 days, also due to the pandemic.
Another point under discussion is bill 2,891 / 2020 by Senator Jaques Wagner (PT-BA). According to the proposal, health professionals with an income of up to ten minimum wages and workers who are unemployed on the final date of filing the income statement will enter the list of priorities for the refund.
Income Tax Extension
The intention, with the extension, is to make it possible to meet the deadline despite the increase in restrictions generated by covid-19.
In 2020, the deadline was extended by means of normative instructions from the Federal Revenue Service, which passed the deadline to June 30. The project rapporteur is Senator Plínio Valério (PSDB-AM).
