Somewhere within the Belgian tax authorities, there is someone who likes to complicate matters as much as possible. This to make sure that we all get confused.
Challenge: try to find the deadline for filing your personal income tax return for income year 2020: the deadlines are actually different, depending on whether you are a resident taxpayer versus a non-resident taxpayer.
To make matters worse, there are 3 different ways for filing tax returns, each time with different deadlines:
- on paper
- electronic – Tax-on-Web
- a so-called ‘simplified tax form’ – paper or Tax-on-Web (issued and prepared by the authorities)
Some genius thus decided to define 6 different deadlines that are possible. Missing the deadline exposes you to penalties and even possibly additional taxes.
Consult our overview table to try to find your correct filing deadline. Good luck….
