To close this presentation, we draw your attention to the fact that this year a portion has been added at the end of almost all income categories. The information that will be included will help determine the amount of exceptional income earned in 2018.
You have imperatively to fill in this part because, with the introduction of the withholding tax, the administration must know the amount of the current income 2018 in order to be able to apply the tax credit “C.I.M.R.”.
