The Financial Administration (FS) of the Slovak Republic checked selected parental couples, in which it identified a double application of the tax bonus (DB). On average, this is an error in the amount of 1,237 euros per parent couple. More than 3,000 taxpayers will therefore receive letters in the coming days in which the financial administration will alert them to the incorrectly applied tax bonus for dependent children for the years 2018, 2019 and 2020. In the event of discrepancies, they have until the end of the calendar year to submit a tax return and pay of the difference in income tax, FS reported on Friday.

Preventive measure

“The goal of the financial administration is to have a preventive effect on taxpayers through this activity. The financial administration also registers cases of abuse in the form of declaring fictitious employment relationships from abroad and applying a tax bonus in Slovakia.” FS spokeswoman Martina Rybansk√° elaborated.

The leaves are divided into two types. The first is for those where only one parent claimed the tax bonus. Either the employer paid it to the mother or the father, and the tax administrator paid the same amount on the basis of the personal income tax return. The second type of letter is intended for those parents who both applied for DB. The father will receive the notification. The Financial Administration reminded that only one of the parents has the right to apply DB, namely the one with whom the child lived in the same household and at the same time fulfilled other conditions established by law.

How to proceed?

According to Rybansk√°, a parent who claimed a tax bonus illegally must file a regular or additional tax return. It is necessary to submit it in person at the relevant tax office, by post at any branch or electronically.
