TAX DATE 2022. Only 5 days left until the first deadline of this declarative campaign! In line ? Paper ? For who ? We tell you everything.

[Updated May 19, 2022 07:56 AM] It’s Tuesday already! Indeed, the deadline is approaching for millions of taxpayers. From Tuesday, May 24, the inhabitants of several departments are already concerned by the completion of their tax declaration online. And more precisely, the departments between Ain (01) and Corr├Ęze (19). For the persons concerned, it is advisable to carefully check the information pre-filled by the tax authorities and to modify it if necessary. Despite the introduction of the automatic tax return and withholding tax, you are still required to complete it. To avoid any misunderstanding and error on your part, we offer you the complete schedule of deadlines after which it will no longer be possible to return your declaration to the tax authorities:

The opening of the 2022 declarative campaign was scheduled for April 7. Everything went well at the opening on Thursday, before a big hiccup that the tax authorities had absolutely not expected. No possibility of accessing the pre-filling of the tax declaration for three days. In question ? Pre-filling errors concerning the overtime of certain civil servants. The problem was solved on Monday 11 in the early afternoon. From now on, everything is back in order, all taxpayers can complete their tax return. Let’s start with the details you absolutely need to keep in mind regarding the paper tax return.

To declare online, you must connect to your private space with your tax number and your password. If you do not yet have a password, enter your tax number, your online access number and your reference tax income. You will find these identifiers on the tax return received in April (tax number and online access number) and on the tax notice received in August N-1 (reference tax income).

If you have forgotten your tax number or your password, on the authentication screen, the procedures allow you to recover your identifiers.

Once authenticated, select the “Declare my income” service. Your online declaration will be pre-filled with information known to the administration. All you have to do is verify your marital status, your address and the pre-filled amounts. You can correct them if necessary. Then, you will complete the other income you have received and the charges, reductions or tax credits to which you are entitled. Don’t forget to sign your online declaration for it to be taken into account.

The deadline for online taxes on depends exclusively on your department number. A total of three zones have been determined by the tax authorities. Here are the deadlines that applied this year:

Taxpayers who use the paper form have until May 31, 2022, at midnight, to send their tax return, the postmark being authentic, regardless of their place of residence. The deadline is therefore the same for everyone. As a reminder, only taxpayers who do not have Internet access or who do not have the capacity to use digital tools can still use the paper form. Internet tax filing is now mandatory.
