Once a year there is a time when you must settle for the previous tax year. The attitude should largely depend on whether you will have to pay extra tax as a result of the settlement or, on the contrary, receive a tax refund to your bank account.
For some it is a very stressful occupation, for others it is very pleasant. The Tax Office sends the tax refund by postal order or, if it has our account number, transfers the tax refund due to us to the bank account. Is it worth providing your account number to the tax office? What are the benefits and disadvantages?
Threats associated with reporting a bank account number to the tax office
From the information I hear, I know that some people are afraid to give their bank number to the tax office. They fear that after reporting every move on their account will be under the magnifying glass of officials.
The above fears are groundless because, firstly, it would require the involvement of a much larger army of officials to track the actions of each taxpayer.
Secondly, the tax office has the right to control your finances without your consent and knowledge. Also, if you need it for any reason (e.g., as a result of suspected tax offense) to know your account number, the bank will quickly provide all information about you. Of course, for the purposes of tax refund, you must report your bank account number yourself.
How to report your account number to the tax office
To do this, you must go to your tax office and submit the ZAP-3 form there if you are a natural person who does not run a business. If you are conducting business, you must submit the application using the CEIDG-1 form at the commune office.
It is worth sending an application before submitting your PIT so that officials can enter the account into the system.
How much tax refund can my bank account take?
The tax office has 3 months to transfer money to the taxpayer, so for a postal order it will take a maximum of 3 months and a few days, and using a bank account a few days faster.
Three months is the maximum period and often the office makes an earlier tax refund.
It is worth remembering that if you make a correction to your tax return, the 3-month period starts running on the day of submitting the correction. Hence, it’s worth spending the time calculating your tax accurately and completing your tax return reliably.
