Tax returns can be filed on April 3

Since the last day in March fell on Saturday, and the day before was a state holiday (like April 1 and 2), tax returns can be filed on April 3 as the last possible day.

The tax returns of legal entities must be filed in electronic form, while natural entities, including the self-employed, can still file them in paper form. April 3 is the last day when both these forms can be filed, since March 31 – the usual deadline – fell on a Saturday, and the day before was a state holiday (like April 1 and 2), the Financial Administration stated.

Those who want to postpone the filing of their tax return may do so by the April 3 deadline, but unlike previous years they have to fill in a special form (https://pfseform.financnasprava.sk/Formulare/eFormVzor/DP/form.401.html). Moreover, the opening hours at individual Tax Offices are extended on Tuesday, April 3 – until 19:00 – and the Tax Administration call centre is open longer, until 24:00. More than 40 additional sites for filing tax returns have opened, listed on the FA website (https://www.financnasprava.sk/sk). In the Petržalka borough of Bratislava, there are mobile offices where people do not even have to leave their car to file returns.

Electronic filing collapsed

One day before the deadline, the Tax Administration's electronic service did not work. According to the Denník N website, the FA’s electronic filing of tax returns, obligatory for legal persons, was inoperable on April 2 morning.

The FA spokesperson Ivana Skokanová claimed the failure was caused by the external supplier, and rectified as soon as possible.
