Between 1 and 30 April, tax authorities refunded a total of 2,582,366 tax declarations, 167,000 more than in the same period 2018.

The ministry said that a total of almost 2.7 million personal income tax declarations were validated in April, which corresponds to “about half of the potential universe” of taxpayers who submit personal income statements, and 41.2 percent were joint taxation.

Automatic tax declarations represent 41.5 percent of the total, compared to 31 percent last year, which shows that more and more people are embracing and relying on the system.
