Tax declaration

As if we don't pay enough taxes yet (more than 50% on our wages, derived directly before it goes into your bank account) we also need to fill in a yearly tax declaration.

Luckily you can do this via Tax-On-Web, which has made it somewhat easier, as some of the posts are already filled in (what you earn, who you are, if you're married or single, the donations you give). But the most intricitate part you have to do yourself. And that is filling in your interests and capital payments when you have a mortgage running. Everything depends on the part of the country you live in, and whether or not  you have taken this mortgage before 2005, between 2005-2009 and after 2015. The three dates have seperate columns. No wonder a lot of people find it difficult to file this form, and therefore need to go and seek some help.

My declaration was filled in in just 5 minutes. Because, whatever new pages and columns the government includes, you only have to read carefully. The wording of the articles remains the same.... Not important whether it's 1145 or 1356 (you to show), as long as the words are the same as those of the year before, you're right.

How difficult or easy is making a tax declaration in your country?
