Declaring income tax 2022: 10 biggest doubts

1. What is Income Tax?

Income tax is a tax levied annually by the Federal Government. At the end of each year, the citizen of our country needs to inform how much he earned in the previous calendar year through the declaration. That is, in 2022, for example, I need to inform the Federal Revenue Service (RFB) of my 2022 income movement.



The income tax return is also called the Annual Adjustment Declaration (DAA).

2. Who needs to file 2022 income tax?

The 2022 income tax return is a mandatory annual return required by the Internal Revenue Service for every citizen who in the previous calendar year:

1. Received taxable income above BRL 28.559,70;
2. Received income that is exempt, untaxed and taxed exclusively at source above BRL 40.000,00;
3. Received capital ganhos subject to taxation in any month relating to operations on the national and international stock exchanges;
4. Received capital gain from the sale of real estate, cars and other assets;
5. Received income from rural activity above BRL 142.798,50.
6. Includes citizens who are not our country and who became resident in our country in any month in the previous calendar year.

The tables with the monthly and annual calculations of the IRPF can be consulted directly on the RFB website. In addition, the taxpayer has access to a complete document with frequently asked questions (Question) and other documents on how to declare income tax 2022.



3. Who is not required to deliver the declaration?

If you do not meet one of the 6 mandatory rules above, you are exempt from submitting your DAA. This release also includes citizens who have had their monthly income up to BRL 1.903,98 and have no other sources of income.

4. Am I required to file an IRS Tax Exemption Declaration?

No more! Until 2008, taxpayers were required to submit the well-known IRPF exemption declaration, called the Annual Exemption Document (DAI).

This declaration helped to keep exempt taxpayers from falling into the fine mesh. However, this obligation ceased to exist as of 2008 and was replaced by a written declaration signed by the taxpayer himself and available on the RFB website.

5. From what age and up to what age should I submit the declaration?

There is no beginning or end rule for the mandatory submission of the declaration. The rule for those who will declare is: if you had taxable income in the previous calendar year, you must inform the RFB.
