Taxpayers to see their income declarations filled automatically

By Prokopis Hatzinikolaou

Taxpayers in Greece will see their income tax statements completed automatically on the Taxisnet system after March 28, as from this year the Finance Ministry will be collecting all the documents ascertaining their annual salaries, pensions, payments from other professions and revenues from commercial enterprises in electronic form.

The data will be transferred to the main form of the tax declaration (E1), but will need to be validated by taxpayers after they have checked the figures prior to the formal submission of their declaration.

In this way the General Secretariat for Public Revenues is hoping to reduce the phenomenon of undeclared incomes i.e. revenues which taxpayers choose not to include in their tax statements in order to avoid paying taxes on them. General Secretary Haris Theoharis signed on Tuesday a decision demanding the electronic submission of all revenue documents from employers for 2013 until March 28.

The data to be submitted will include a detailed breakdown of the salary (or pension) paid, the corresponding withheld income tax and the solidarity levy withheld. After the collection of the data the general secretariat will transfer the figures onto the electronic forms of the tax declarations. That means that from March 28 onward taxpayers will be able to enter the Taxisnet accounts and find their revenue data already filled.

All employers are therefore obliged to submit data for all of their employees by the end of next month, regardless of sector, with the only exception being the incomes of merchant marine officers and lower crew. Any payment data that is not submitted electronically will be considered illegal.
