The Greek Ministry of Finance announced Thursday that it has extended the deadline for filing income tax returns until July 29, 2022.
It aims to “help taxpayers be consistent in their commitments,” the ministry said in a statement. Note that the deadline was June 30th.
According to the relevant decision of the Ministry, the deadline for filing income tax returns for the 2021 tax year by individuals and legal entities, in accordance with Article 45 of the CFR, has been extended until 15:00 on July 29, 2022. The submissions relate to the tax year ending December 31, 2021.
According to the ministry, “despite the fact that this year the electronic platform for filing personal income tax returns began to work on March 30, 2022, the extension of this period was considered necessary due to the prevailing special circumstances.”
Recall that, despite the delay, there have been no changes in the payment of the first installment of income tax, this must be done before July 29.
Finally, the Ministry of Finance states that “the government, while consistently pursuing a tax policy with a social and developmental dimension, is extending tax filing deadlines to help all Greek citizens be consistent in their commitments.”
