Those who are self-employed in Czechia have just a few days remaining to submit their annual tax return (for 2022) electronically if they haven’t already. You must have a datová schránka (data box) to do this. The deadline is May 2.

Those who have arranged for a tax adviser or lawyer to submit the tax return on their behalf have a little longer, until July 3, to send the tax return.

There are over 2 million registered self-employed people in Czechia. However, the new government-enforced obligation for self-employed people to use a data box has seen this number fall slightly in recent months.

You can calculate the sum of your 2022 tax return by visiting the income tax calculator.

Dení reported Thursday that over 6 million people in Czechia have so far created a “bank identity” with their banks. These credentials can be used to file an online tax return. This comes as part of the government’s recent digitization drive.

However, the vast majority of foreigners (even if from the EU) are unable to obtain a bank identity in Czechia if they don’t have an electronically readable bank document. Only MONETA Money Bank offers this so far. According to, more mainstream banks in Czechia will soon offer the bank identity. 

Further information on data boxes can be found here. To learn more about bank identity (in English), see here.
