From 1 September 2021 we will receive you in all our offices again, but by appointment only.

Proposed simplified return

Proposed simplified return 2021

  • What is the proposed simplified return?

    In principle, all taxpayers have to complete their tax return each year. However, another procedure has been introduced for taxpayers whose tax situation tends to remain more or less the same: the proposed simplified return.

    The proposed simplified return includes a simulation of your tax calculation based on tax data known to us. It thus shows the amount to be paid or received. If you have received a proposed simplified return, in principle, you no longer need to file a return.

    Example of a proposed simplified return.

  • Am I going to receive a proposed simplified return this year?

    You will probably receive a proposed simplified return if:

    • you are paid a wage, a pension, unemployment benefit or sickness/invalidity benefit, and
    • you have no other income (such as certain types of income from property, self-employment or company director’s income, an account abroad, etc.).
  • When and how am I going to receive my proposed simplified return?

    Via MyMinfin (Tax-on-web)

    Your proposed simplified return is now available online at MyMinfin (Tax-on-web). You can view it now (and if necessary amend it) online.

    How to access your proposed simplified return

    By post

    What if you don’t use Tax-on-web? You will receive your proposed simplified return through the post between the middle of May and the beginning of June.

    You will not receive your proposed simplified return through the post in the following cases:

    • you have used Tax-on-web in the past year (for your return or your proposed simplified return), and/or
    • you have activated your eBox (and that of your partner if you are married or legally cohabiting).
  • I have received a proposed simplified return. What do I have to do?

    Check carefully that your data is correct and complete.

    Is your data correct and complete? You do not have to do anything.

    You will receive your tax assessment notice (calculation note) with the calculation of your tax based on the data of that proposed return.

    Is your data incorrect or incomplete? You should complete and/or correct it:

    • Either online via MyMinfin (Tax-on-web): you have until 20 July 2021.
    • Or using the paper form (if you received your proposed return through the post): the form has to reach us by 30 June 2021
    • If you use a proxy (an accountant etc.) they have until 20 July 2021 to amend your proposed return via MyMinfin (Tax-on-web).
  • My dependent children are not included in my proposed simplified return or the number of my dependent children is incorrect. What should I do?

    Is the data relating to your dependent children incorrect or incomplete? You should complete and/or correct it:

    • Either online via Tax-on-web: you have until 20 July 2021.
    • Or using the paper form (if you received your proposed return through the post): the form has to reach us by 30 June 2021.

    If you have one or more dependent children you may be entitled to a tax allowance.

  • I have not yet received my proposal for a simplified tax return. What can I do?

    Tax return forms and proposals for a simplified tax return are sent in May.

    You do not want to wait? Your tax return form or your proposal for a simplified tax return is already available online via MyMinfin (Tax-on-web)

    You haven’t received anything at the start of June? Please call your taxation office ("centre Particuliers"/Individuals). Get your identity card ready before calling.
