The National Superintendence of Customs and Tax Administration (Sunat) reported that this year around 500,000 workers on the payroll will be able to receive a refund of a balance of Income Tax (IR) 2021. But who will be the beneficiaries? Next, we tell you all the details.
The collecting entity indicated that it returns the positive balance if the taxpayer made deductible expenses supported with electronic receipts in consumption in restaurants, bars, hotels, hires professional or technical services or complies with making the contributions for domestic workers.
For example: José is an electrician, works for a company and is on the payroll; your annual income is S/ 40,000, you have deductible expenses of S/ 2,000 and your Income Tax for the year 2021 is S/ 632, and they withheld S/ 792, the balance in your favor for returning it is S / 160.
How will the refund be made?
The return of this balance is made automatically, without the need for any personal management, with the deposit in your bank account, as long as the worker or his employer has registered his Interbank Account Code (CCI) in the Sunat.
To date, it is known that more than 184,000 of these workers have complied with registering their CCI. The estimated amount of return to this group amounts to S/ 68.2 million.
