Employers must soon submit the PIT-11 information for 2021 to the tax office. The deadline for submitting the document is the end of January. In turn, the deadline for submitting the declaration to employees is the end of February. In the annual PIT settlements for 2021, the PIT-11 form in the earlier version, i.e. 27 (published on December 28, last year), will be used.
PIT-11 forms provide information about the income earned by the taxpayer and the advances collected on the income tax from natural persons, as well as the amount of deducted social and health insurance contributions.
The PIT-11 document includes revenues, costs, income and advances from various sources, including: employment relationship, benefits from the Labor Fund and Guaranteed Employee Benefits, activities performed personally or socially, copyrights, contracts for specific work, contracts order or from receivables resulting from the activation agreement.
Employers should submit the PIT-11 declaration to the tax office in electronic form by the last day of January. If these days fall on the weekend, the deadline for submitting PIT-11 is moved to the first business day following the applicable deadline. It is worth noting, however, that in 2022 the last day of January (i.e. 01/01) falls on Monday.
By the end of February, every employer who hired an employee in the previous year – be it under an employment contract, order or specific work – must deliver PIT-11 to him – in electronic or paper form (in person or via post).
– Confirmed receipt of PIT-11 by the employee along with the generated document should be kept in the company’s documentation. Employees who received PIT-11 should fill in the annual tax return PIT-37 or PIT-36, the deadline for submitting to the tax office is April 30, explains Teresa Warska, accounting specialist at Systim.pl.
