Kassel – The tax return is due every year.

At the same time, the question arises as to what can be deducted from taxes.

With all the deadlines, it's easy to lose track.

What many do not know: The so-called "Fourth Corona Tax Assistance Act" of July 20, 2021 and April 1, 2022 extended the deadlines for tax returns.

We explain what this means for consumers and what deadlines have to be met.

Deadline for tax return 2022: Extension of the time window due to Corona

Normally, since 2019, the tax return for the previous year must be submitted by July 31, as the income tax assistance association United Income Tax Assistance (VLH) explains.

In previous years, the deadline was May 31st.

But the corona pandemic even influenced the regulations for filing tax returns.

With the "Fourth Corona Tax Assistance Act", the federal government decided to extend the deadline.

The tax return for 2022 must be submitted by September 30, 2023.

The tax return for the year 2023 by August 31, 2024. The following year the deadline is set to July 31 again.

If the day of submission falls on a weekend, the deadline is postponed to the following Monday.

For example, the 2023 submission deadline falls on a Saturday (September 30, 2023).

Therefore, the tax return for 2022 must

be submitted to the tax office on

October 2, 2023 .

In 2024, too, the final submission deadline for the tax return for 2023 will be postponed to September 2, 2024.

Deadlines for submitting the tax return with the help of a tax consultant or a tax association

It is important to know that this deadline only applies to those who do their tax returns themselves, informs the wage tax advisory association.

If a tax aid association or a tax consultant prepares your tax return, other deadlines apply.

If you miss the deadline, the tax office will set a late fee.

According to the VLH, at least 25 euros are due for each started and late month, but the amount can vary.

It is therefore very important to keep an eye on the deadlines.
