This year may be the last time we file tax returns through the Taxisnet system. This is because from 2023, according to a competent source, the new electronic system of the Tax Department will be implemented, through which tax returns will be submitted and more.
That is, the income declarations for the tax year 2021 will be submitted through Taxisnet, while the declarations for the tax year 2022 will be through the new electronic system, which is in the process of installation.

At the same time, the new system will contribute to the compliance of citizens with their tax obligations.

Those who receive less than € 19,500 are exempted this year as well

Due to the forthcoming operation of the new electronic system, it was decided by the state to exempt from the obligation to file a tax return (and) for the tax year 2021 those taxpayers who have a gross annual income which is not exceeds € 19,500. A relevant decree was issued by the Ministry of Finance and published yesterday in the Official Gazette of the Republic.
