Tax deadline 2023 last hours this Monday before a sanction

TAX DEADLINE. If you use the paper tax return, you only have a few hours left to return your form to the tax authorities this Monday, May 22, 2023, under penalty of an increase.

[Mis à jour le 22 mai 2023 à 07h15] You have no more time to waste. The first deadline for the paper tax return has already arrived. If you are concerned by this method of declaration, it is now necessary to complete it as soon as possible. You have until Monday May 22, 11:59 p.m.. Beyond that, it will be too late, and you will have to pay a 10% surcharge with the tax authorities, and up to +40% if you still have not resolved the situation after receiving a formal notice. Worse, if the tax authorities discover that you are carrying out an illicit or undeclared activity, an 80% increase will be automatically applied, without formal notice.

This year, the tax return must be done online. However, there are certain exceptions and some taxpayers can still complete the paper form, if they do not have Internet access or if they do not have the capacity to use digital tools can still use the paper form. In this case, the paper tax return can be done until 22 May 2023 midnight, as evidenced by the postmark, regardless of their place of residence. The deadline is therefore the same for everyone.

Like every year, the arrival of spring rhymes with tax declaration. And despite the establishment of withholding tax four years ago now, you won’t escape it. Indeed, you will have to complete your tax return again, or check the information pre-filled by the tax authorities in your automatic declaration. The sending of pre-filled declarations will extend from April 6 to 25, 2023. The opening of the online declaration service will open its doors on April 13, 2023. The deadline for taxes online on depends exclusively on your department number. We advise you to pay close attention to the deadlines after which it will no longer be possible to declare your income. An oversight that could cost you dearly with a financial penalty. In total, three zones have been determined by the tax authorities. Here are the deadlines for 2023:

  • 1time area: the 25 May 2023 @ 11:59pm for departments n° 01 to 19 and residents not resident in France
  • 2th area: the June 1st 2023 at 11:59 p.m. for departments 20 to 54 including the two departments of Corsica
  • 3th area: the June 8, 2023 at 11:59 p.m. for departments n° 55 to 974/976

To declare online, you must connect to your private space with your tax number and your password. If you do not yet have a password, enter your tax number, your online access number and your reference tax income. You will find these identifiers on the tax return received in April (tax number and online access number) and on the tax notice received in August N-1 (reference tax income). If you have forgotten your tax number or your password, on the authentication screen, the procedures allow you to recover your identifiers.

Once authenticated, select the “Declare my income” service. Your online declaration will be pre-filled with information known to the administration. All you have to do is verify your marital status, your address and the pre-filled amounts. You can correct them if necessary. Then, you will complete the other income you have received and the charges, reductions or tax credits to which you are entitled. Don’t forget to sign your online declaration for it to be taken into account.
