Financial difficulties ā€“ individual taxpayers

If you do not pay a tax on time, you will receive a payment reminder as part of your tax summary. The reminder gives you more time to pay the tax. If you still cannot pay the tax by the due date stated in the payment reminder, you can request a payment arrangement for temporary financial difficulties.

Summary on tax payment status

Your summary is a statement containing information about your taxes and payments for the past month.

Payment arrangements

If you have temporary financial difficulties, you can ask for a payment arrangement to get more time to pay your taxes and to decrease the size of the instalments.

If VAT, payroll withholding, or employer contributions are unpaid at the due date printed on the reminder letter and their total is at least €15,000, the tax debt will be published on the public protest list.
