Canton Vaud - extension request for tax return

Hi all,

Just a quick question (I promise I've done my due diligence and spent at least two hours trying to find the answer to this question - on the cantonal website, on EF, general google searches, etc.):

Tax filing deadline is 15 March. I need to request an extension to June. How do I request an extension, and do I need to prove my need for extra time? If so, what's sufficient to show need?

My French is only so-so, so it's entirely possible I might have missed it...but of the very, very few mentions of extension requests, I've found general references to calling the tax office or submitting a written request. No specifics beyond that...phone numbers, addresses, addressees, whether a written request should just be a plain letter or submitted on a form...

If anyone has done this before and can give me guidance, I'd be indebted.

Thank you!

Check out this page, found with good old Google:

Looks like all you need to do is make a phone call?

Declaration forms must be returned by 15 March. An extension to 15 June can be obtained by calling 021 316 00 00 (giving your tax number) before 15 March.

Re: Canton Vaud - extension request for tax return

The firm that does my tax returns never filed it before Aug of every year (in last 10 years). I have also asked them earlier and they said normally Vaud accepts it by Sep/Oct. I can't give you a reference of this but i suppose they know better.

We submitted 2015 in November this year! (Yes, it was complicated). Two weeks after putting it into the post we got a letter from them asking us to submit by the end of the year ... !!!

Hi,
you can go here : http://www.vd.ch/themes/etat-droit-f...a-declaration/

They will accept until June without any problem but you might have to pay few CHF 20 or 40 if I remember well.

Re: Canton Vaud - extension request for tax return

Thanks all...but those sites were exactly what I'd already found. Yeah, the one for CERN employees did have the phone number of the Vaud tax call center, and I had seen that. But the canton website says to send a request in writing, not to call the call center. And doesn't provide a specific address, office to send the request to the attention of, etc.

And still nothing re: whether you have to provide a basis for the request.

Yes, I know, I could just call up the number - but my biggest difficulty with French is understanding what people are saying over the phone. And once I've given over my tax number (whichever one of the multiple possible numbers that could be), if they tell me things I don't understand and then take some sort of action based on that phone call that I don't understand...

Hence my reason for trying to understand the process before making a random phone call or sending a stab-in-the-dark letter to a general address.

Swisscfj, from your comment it sounds like you've done this before? Did you call? Write? Explain why you needed the extension?

Re: Canton Vaud - extension request for tax return

Hi,

You need first to write to the correct tax office, you simply have to add your postcode in the following link : http://www.vd.ch/autorites/departeme...ffices-dimpot/

Then you simply write a letter (something short) but do not forget to precise your tax number and the control code on the tax form.

I'm a tax specialist :-)

Re: Canton Vaud - extension request for tax return

Ah! Beautiful! Thank you so much.

So, it's enough to just say that I request an extension of time to file my tax return, and that's it?

Re: Canton Vaud - extension request for tax return

Literally one of the best, clear, straightforward answers I've ever gotten on EF. I am in your debt.

Have a wonderful weekend!
