The deadline for filing 2019 Russian personal income tax returns (form 3 – NDFL) has been extended from 30 April for 3 months.
The deadline has been extended from 30 April for 3 months
In accordance with Resolution № 409 of the Government of the Russian Federation dated 2 April 2020, the deadline for filing 2019 Russian personal income tax returns (form 3 – NDFL) has been extended from 30 April for 3 months.
Due to the current situation with coronavirus, the Russian tax authorities recommend the use of contactless methods when submitting tax returns, for example, by using the e-filing service available via the online Taxpayer Personal Office.
Due to the self-isolation requirements imposed by the Russian government to prevent the spread of COVID-19, taxpayers who do not have access to the Taxpayer Personal Office and who lack an electronic signature are currently unable to file their tax returns via other means, such as by using the Russian Post Office or by personally visiting tax authorities office. In Moscow, the lockdown requirements are in place until at least 1 May 2020, so the above-mentioned extension allows 2019 tax returns to be filed without triggering late tax filing penalties.
Please note that the deadline for tax payments under 2019 tax returns remains unchanged - 15 July 2020.
