On 21 May 2020, Argentina’s tax authorities published General Resolution 4721/2020 to announce that the filing and payment deadlines for individual taxpayers subject to Argentine income tax, wealth tax and financial income tax for the 2019 tax year has been extended to the end of July 2020.1

WHY THIS MATTERS

This extension of the time for filing and payment of taxes for more than 40 days for individual taxpayers aims to facilitate compliance with tax obligations within the framework of compulsory social isolation in Argentina due to the COVID-19 crisis.  Delaying the deadlines for these tax returns and payments should offer individuals some relief by preserving their cash flow and provide additional time to organize their tax and financial affairs to meet their compliance obligations in this difficult period.

KPMG NOTE

To date, the local tax authority has not released the online tax software that allows the filing for FY 2019.

Companies with globally mobile employees who are taxable in Argentina should consult with their tax service professionals about the new compliance timetable and how the new deadlines impact in terms of information collection, review/approval and tax return completion.
