Paying taxes is an obligation for all citizens. Only, each individual does not pay the same sums. There are several categories that are assigned to each household according to their declaration to the tax authorities. It is also possible to pay less or to be reimbursed. Procedures have been put in place to allow everyone to regularize their taxes. Or to benefit from certain advantages still linked to tax.

Taxes: A box to check

When you file your tax return online, the procedures are much simplified. Just check or uncheck several boxes and you're done. However, the tax department has recently noticed that among the checkboxes, people tend to forget the 2OP box.

According to the information received, if this small box must be ticked by 8 million households. We only have 1.8 million. Of course, to avoid this mistake again and again, several strategies have been developed. Little reminders from both sides, to say that it is essential to tick the 2OP box .

A strategy that seems to work, because the statistics have increased even if the 8 million is still a long way off. Everyone is also invited to become aware of this act by a sensitization general.

Every year during the tax declaration period. It is true that it is not very obvious given the number of boxes, but a reminder tab should attract the attention of a taxpayer when filling out.
