How to File PIT (Personal Income Tax) in Poland: practical step-by-step guide__

Annual tax settlement, known as PIT settlement, is an important obligation for every taxpayer in Poland. From January to April each year, citizens have the opportunity to submit a tax return, which allows determining the amount of tax due or overpaid for the previous tax year.

The term PIT (Personal Income Tax) directly refers to personal income tax. The period for calculating annual PIT declarations in 2024 starts on February 15 and lasts until April 30. This is another opportunity to help, as taxpayers can donate 1.5% of their annual tax to charitable purposes without any additional cost.

In this article, we will present a practical step-by-step guide on how to file PIT in Poland:

1️⃣ Prepare necessary documents:

Before starting to fill out the PIT declaration, make sure you have all the necessary documents needed for its correct completion. Among the most important documents are:

  • PIT-11: information about income obtained from your employer (for employees),

  • PIT-36: for individuals conducting business activity or settling losses from previous years,
  • PIT-28: for taxpayers taxed with lump sum,
  • PIT-38: for individuals receiving income from the sale of securities,

2️⃣ Choose the method of settlement:

3️⃣ Fill out and submit the declaration:

Fill out the PIT declaration accurately, stating all income and using available deductions and allowances. Filing PIT online and sending it electronically will be much simpler: for this purpose, you can use several options. The PIT program (such as the application) will be helpful. PIT 37 settlement can also be done through the Ministry of Finance Tax Portal. For this purpose, the “Your e-PIT” service has been created.
