The deadline for the manual submission of tax returns to the Inland Revenue Department (IRD) is Wednesday, April 30, while online submissions through the TAXISnet system may be carried out until July 31.
Speaking to the Cyprus News Agency, IRD senior officer Liana Charalambous said that all IRD clerks had been instructed by the head of the department to serve the public, who may call the department with questions on how to fill out their tax return.
“At the same time, taxpayers are encouraged to submit their return electronically, via the TAXISnet system,” she said.
Charalambous explained that registering with the TAXISnet service no longer requires the submission of a copy of applicants’ ID cards to the IRD, as long as the applicant has a tax file.
With regard to the new section added to the tax return, in which taxpayers are asked to calculate their tax dues, Charalambous said it was introduced “at the request of taxpayers” since many did not know whether they needed to pay tax, were entitled to returns of tax or allowed deductions.
