2008 e-Declarations

Starting from the 1st of January 2008 new e-declaration system enables each of the tax payer sending tax declarations using electronic way. Till today only so-called “big tax payers” had this method at their disposal. The term “big” refers to the subjects whose annual net earnings exceed the total amount of 5 mln EUR and settle their taxes with the specialized tax office. Beginning January everybody can take advantage of this method and all they need to have is a safe electronic signature and need to notify the tax office about their intention of using electronic form.

For the time being not all of the declarations can be submitted via electronic way. The tax regulation underlines the necessity of introducing this method of contact with the tax organs gradually as well as bearing in mind the frequency of filing the declarations. Therefore the regulation dated on the 19th December 2007 states that since the 1st of January 2008 thirty two different kinds of declarations including VAT-7, VAT-UE, CIT-8 can be submitted via electronic way and on the 1st of April 2008 twelve new declarations will be added to this catalogue, including among others annual tax declarations: PIT-37, PIT-36, PIT-38, PIT-36l, PIT/O, PIT/D. Next stage begins on the 1st of July 2008 when 17 additional declarations will be added, like PIT-11 and on the 11th of January 2009 – 20 declarations more. During the whole year the total sum of all declarations will be raised up to 81.

Since the 1st of January the tax declarations are sent via electronic way using the www.e-deklaracje.gov.pl portal. On this site tax payers will find interactive tax forms with the instructions which after filling and putting the safe electronic signature can be sent to the system. If the tax payer does not have the updated version of the file browser PDF Adobe Reader installed on the computer, which is necessary for filling the interactive forms, it can be downloaded from the portal’s folder titled “Download”.

For the software producers this portal is the place where they can find the open standard for the tax document. This will allow to modify their applications so that they can handle the process of submitting the tax declarations. The second way of sending the tax declarations will be the possibility of sending them directly from the tax payer’s financial systems using the applications delivered by the software producers.
