Re: Queries on tax calculation and filing taxes

I find it very odd that they send a declaration for the year 2020 which hasn't ended yet. I guess all the figures must all have been provisional. I suppose you fill out a final one for 2020 in 2021? I suppose in BL they want taxes in advance of the end of the tax year.
Maybe it seems odd to me because I got my first request for a tax return about 4 years after I moved here.
As per the link shared by newtoswitz (, it seems they would normally send the provisional invoice (for 2020) based on the last definitive assessment in January 2020 which is to be paid by 30 Sep 2020.

Since it is our first full tax year in BL, looks like we got the tax declaration form and then the provisional invoice which is to be paid within 30 days of getting the invoice.

The final / definitive one for 2020 will need to be filed in 2021. Still not clear how and when any additional taxes paid will be refunded.
