The deadline for filing annual personal income tax return for income generated in 2018 is 15 May 2019

Individuals whose total personal net income in 2018 exceeds RSD 2,470,644 (non-taxable amount) are required to file a personal income tax return. The total personal net income earned in 2018 and the non-taxable amount are reported in the tax return, where the difference represents taxable income.

Taxable income is decreased for the amount of prescribed personal deductions. The remaining amount represents income for taxation to which the prescribed tax rates are applied.

Personal deductions are set in the following amounts:

  • for the taxpayer: RSD 329,419
  • for each dependent family member: RSD 123,532

The total amount of personal deductions cannot be greater than 50% of taxable income.

How to file a personal income tax return?

The Law on Tax Procedure and Tax Administration prescribes that a personal income tax return can be filed either in electronic form or in hardcopy.

Please note that for filing an electronic personal income tax return (PPDG-2R form) an individual must possess a qualified electronic certificate for accessing the Tax Administration’s portal “E-Porezi” or should authorize someone to do so on individual’s behalf using the PEP form.

The hardcopy tax return is filed with the branch office of the Tax Administration located in the municipality of the taxpayer’s registered address of residence.

Irrespective of how the tax return is filed, the Tax Administration shall issue a hardcopy tax assessment of the amount of personal income tax payable.

Possibility of deadline extension for filing tax return

The Law on Tax Procedure and Tax Administration provides for the possibility of deadline extension for filing a tax return when the following conditions are met:

  • a written application must be submitted to the Tax Administration
  • the application must be submitted before the deadline for tax return filing
  • reasons for deadline extension must be justified (illness, being away from the country, accident, natural disaster of significant scope, etc.).

The application for deadline extension is submitted to the branch office of the Tax Administration with which the tax return is filed. The Tax Administration shall consider the application for deadline extension and issue a decision within five days of receiving such application. The maximum period of extension is six months from the statutory deadline for filing a personal income tax return.
