Financial Administration distributes post money orders for payment of the real-estate tax
The term to pay the real-estate tax (or its first instalment) is 31th May. For the first time natural persons will receive tax post money order, which enables to pay the tax without postal fee. Legal persons will obtain the information on the tax liability to their tax data-boxes (if they don’t have accessible tax data-box, they will receive common post money order).
In order to prevent queues, the post money orders are being sent to the taxpayers continuously already from April, up to 24th May at the latest.
If the tax amounts less than CZK 5,000, it is due to 31st May. If the tax amounts more than CZK 5,000, it may be paid up to 31st May, or in two instalments up to 31st May and 30th November.
Information on the total amount of tax, as well as address of a tax office where the taxpayer’s real‑estate tax file is deposited, can be found on the separable part (allonge) of the post money order. Owners of more than one real estate in one region of the Czech Republic will receive only one post money order with the amounts counted up for all of the real-estates in the region. If the real-estates are located in more regions of the Czech Republic, the envelope shall contain more post money orders. Bank account number of the respective tax office (including prefix and bank code) is pre-printed on the post money order. The taxpayer shall fill out the total amount of the payment according to the amount stated on the allonge. Newly, there is a QR code on the allonge of the post money order which can be also used for payment.
The tax can payed:
via cashless transfer from the taxpayer’s bank account to the bank account of a tax office,
via tax post money order or the usual post money order at the post office (excluding contractors of the Czech Post “Pošta Partner”),
via SIPO (taxpayers who registered for SIPO before 1.2.2016. Pay attention to adequate amount of the collection limit for SIPO payment),
in cash in the tax office’s cash desk.
The relevant tax office usually use a collective regulation list to announce the real-estate tax payers, whose tax amount has changed for the tax year 2016 compared to 2015 or compared to amount calculated in the tax return. This list is put up at all territorial branches of the relevant tax offices every weekday during the month of May.
In any case of ambiguity or discrepancy, the taxpayer can contact relevant tax office where the records are kept.
