Extending Income Tax Return

The Czech bookkeeping year for SROs, trade licenses and private individuals (employees) runs from the 1st of January till the 31st of December, after which there is a 3-month period to file the last year's Income Tax Return.

Regular Filing of an Income Tax Return

Filing an Income Tax Return for 2021 is possible between 1.1.2022 and 31.03.2022 (with electronic filing there is 1 month more time).

After 31.03.2022 (30.04.2022) there is still a grace period of 5 days for regular filing; the Tax Office will not penalize filing and/or paying taxes during that period. However, after the grace period there will be a penalty with an interest component that grows by the day.

Filing for an Extension - not possible after 31st of March

Filing an Extension for 2021 is possible between 1.1.2022 and 31.03.2022. After 31.03.2022 requests for extension will not be accepted by the Tax Office anymore. There is NO 5-day grace period as with regular filing. Note: COVID regulations may affect the deadline (as it did in 2020 and 2021)

Extending your Tax Return means that we will get 3 months more to file (until 31.06.2022)

Our tax advisor will take over responsibility (from the tax subject) for the correctness of the Tax Return, 2 hours of his time for checking the the tax return are included in the extension fee.

No money to pay the Income Taxes / Social Charges / Health Insurance now? Extend!

In case you do not have the money to pay the income taxes / social charges / health insurance now, then one option is to apply for an Extension, so you will have 3 more months more to generate money. With Trade Licenses we can also file the Tax Return in time, but postpone the filing for Social Security and Publci Health Care by max. 1 month (instead of filing for a 3-month extension)

An Extension can only be ordered with the Tax Return itself - go to this page: Order a Personal Income Tax Return
