What penalties for errors on your tax return?
Verified 01 January 2022 - Legal and Administrative Information Directorate (Prime Minister)
If your tax return contains errors or omissions that reduce your tax or increase a tax advantage in your favour, tax penalties apply.
Tax increase due
You will have to pay a 10%.
It is applied to the additional tax you must pay or the amount of the benefit to which you are not entitled.
You can avoid this increase by one of the following 2 ways:
- Regulate your situation spontaneously (by lodging a declaration of amendment)
- Respond within 30 days to a revival of the administration
In the event of fraudulent or wilful misconduct, more severe penalties.
You may also be charged late interest.
They amount to 0,20% tax due per month of delay (or 2.4% over 1 year).
you will not be charged interest for late filing if you have notified the tax authority in writing of your enquiries when filing your return.
