The Directorate General of Taxation, DGT, moved the statistical and tax returns filing day ahead in a press release signed on March 12, 2021.
The aim of pushing ahead the deadline is part of efforts to reduce the financial pressure on businesses due to the coronavirus.
According to the press release signed by the Minister of Finance, Louis Paul Motaze, the extension is due to the “persisting health crisis and digitization of tax procedures”.
With this, the 2020 tax filing and payment dates have been pushed forward to:
It should be noted that all taxpayers are supposed to file in their Statistical and Tax Returns, STR and pay the balance on or before the March 15 each year.
This move gives taxpayers more time more than they would have had to file their income tax returns for the 2020 fiscal year, without incurring penalties.
The Minister also informed taxpayers that training workshops on procedures for e-filling shall be scheduled accordingly.
