The e-facture portal is registering disruptions in its service, on the last day to consult invoices with tax identification number (NIF) of expenses incurred in 2022 and register those that are missing, the Lusa agency found.
Several users reported on social networks that they were experiencing difficulties using the service. Lusa has already sent a request for clarification to the Ministry of Finance, but has not yet received a response.
Taxpayers had until February 27 to consult invoices with NIF for expenses incurred in 2022 and register those that were missing, this being also the last day to notify the household.
These are two of the steps for preparing the delivery of the annual IRS declaration, which begins on April 1st, and which influence the amount of tax that each taxpayer has to pay or receive (via refund).
In the case of households, the deadline for reporting is usually set at 15 February, but the Government decided this year to extend it until the end of the month.
It was also the last day for taxpayers to consult, confirm and register invoices for expenses incurred over the past year, as well as to channel those that were pending to the “drawer” for the respective deduction.
Also in this case, the deadline “slipped” two days, as this is usually a task that has to be completed by February 25th.
Since the IRS reform in 2015, IRS deductions are related to invoices for expenses incurred by taxpayers and to which they have associated their NIF.
Invoices therefore make it possible to reduce the amount of tax that each taxpayer has to pay, although in the case of expenses with education, health and housing it is possible to eliminate the deductible amount calculated and pre-filled by the Tributária e Aduaneira (AT) in the IRS declaration and indicate a different one based on the invoices that were kept and that have the NIF.
After this step of confirming the invoices, taxpayers will still be able, from the 16th to the 31st of March, to consult the deductible expenses and complain about the invoices/general family expenses.
The delivery of the IRS declaration or confirmation of the automatic declaration must be made between April 1st and June 30th.
