Slovakia: Paperless communication system between tax authorities and taxpayers
Beginning 1 January 2022, all official documents sent by the tax administration are to be managed through a central public administration portal.
Launch date of 1 January 2022
The Slovak tax administration is planning for a paperless, electronic communication system between the tax authorities and taxpayers, with a launch date of 1 January 2022.
This electronic communication system would replace the transmission of official documents in paper form with electronic transmittals and the use of electronic mailboxes.
Since 2018, a majority of taxpayers has been required to file returns exclusively in electronic form; however, the tax authorities have still been sending many documents in a paper form.
Beginning 1 January 2022, all official documents sent by the tax administration are to be managed through a central public administration portal (slovensko.sk). In order to use the electronic mailbox for communication with the tax authorities and to allow for electronic delivery of official documents, the taxpayer must activate a mailbox (including email or message notifications of received mail).
