The Ministry of Finance of Thuringia has announced that the countdown for the tax return 2020 is running: The deadline for tax return submission is 31 October 2021 or the following working day. If the tax return is completed by a tax advisor or income tax assistance association (Lohnsteuerhilfeverein), the new submission deadline ends on 31 May 2022 (FinMin Thuringia as of 14.09.2021).
In 2020, 3.3 million objections were filed to tax assessment notices – and most of them were well justified! More than two-thirds of the objections were – at least partially – successful for the taxpayers! Once you have finally received your tax assessment notice (Steuerbescheid), it should in any case be closely examined and checked for errors. It is usually not a good idea to simply put the income tax assessment notice in the file without thoroughly examining it.
Good news for all taxpayers who do not want to deal with their income tax returns 2020 during the holiday season. The deadline for tax return submission has been postponed from 31 July 2021 to 31 October 2021.
