Following the previous introduction of the “Automatic IRS” which prefills personal income tax submissions for millions of Portuguese taxpayers, other 2018 IRS declarations must only be declared electronically via the Internet. Paper forms are no longer available. Those who lack a computer or the necessary skills can get help at one of the Citizen Shops or via their local “AT” agency.
Starting in 2017, the Portuguese Tax Authority (“AT) is making available Automatic IRS Reporting to over one million taxpayers in Portugal. The change is part of “Simplex”, a programme designed to reduce bureaucracy at all levels of government.
