Will you declare income tax? Better pay attention to the changes!

During his election campaign, one of the promises of the incumbent President of the Republic, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (Workers’ Party), stood out. Basically, Betista promised to extend the individual income tax exemption (IRPF) to those who earn up to R$5,000 per month.

However, this long-awaited fix is ​​not expected to take place this year. The development minister, Wellington Dias, also said in November that the issue would be addressed throughout the new government. However, it is important to note that an income tax reform project is underway in the National Congress. Want to know more details about? So, see below.

Contribution table concerns

The income tax contribution scenario in recent years is worrying. This is because low-income people have to pay the tax, given that the exemption band limit in the tax table is frozen at R$1,903.

Namely, this table was last corrected in 2015, when the limits that are in effect to this day were also determined. However, at the time, the minimum wage was R$788, which forced only those earning more than 2.4 wages to declare taxes.

Thus, applying this range today, when the minimum wage is R$1320, the scale ends up forcing a taxpayer who would receive only 1.5 wages to declare. Provided that real earnings are applied to bonuses, the requirements are even greater.

Finally, although the income tax reform bill is being discussed in the National Congress, there is no specific change for 2023. In this sense, the contribution rules remain the same as of now.
