The tax return shows that I got bumps. Can I still influence the amount of residual tax?

You can if you report deductions. If you have expenses that qualify for tax deductions from last year, the Tax Administration recommends that you report them in tax. Expenses eligible for tax deductions are most typically travel expenses, expenses for the purchase of services qualifying for a household deduction, or expenses for obtaining income.

The tax return does not need to be accompanied by statements or receipts. Fill in the required information in the fields provided for them, either in tax or on a paper form. If the tax authorities need more information, they will ask for it separately. Receipts and receipts must nevertheless be kept for six years after the end of the tax year.

When do I get a tax refund or pay my residual tax?

Most personal customers will receive their tax refunds on August 6 this year. If the residual tax becomes payable, most of it will have its first due date on August 1st.

In this case, you will receive a new tax decision. The decision also shows the new tax refund payment date or residual tax due dates with payment information. The tax refund is paid and the first installment of the residual tax is due in December at the latest. Using the income tax calculator is essential under the situation.

What is the deductible for travel expenses or household deduction?
