Tax return guidelines for residents in Portugal

You will be sent a tax return request at the beginning of the year. There are a range of annexes within the tax return notification which you may have to complete depending on your income source/s. Category A – employment income and Category H – pension income is required to make an annual tax return. All other residents under alternative categories must file a tax return too.

Tax return guidelines for non-residents in Portugal

If you have rental income or capital gains, non-residents must file a tax return from the 1st April to the 30th June. If applicable, a follow up tax bill will be sent between 4-8 weeks after the filing of your tax return.
