Tax and Customs Authority Portal (portaldasfinancas.gov)
Area of e-government: e-bill/e-payment
The Ministry of Finance makes available to citizens and companies a web portal allowing for tax submission and fiscal situation consultation, among a wide range of digital services. Users can consult their tax files, statistics and conduct simulations. Advanced functionalities were recently integrated into the system allowing for enhanced usability, the most notable being the automated income tax declaration. Available since 2017 as a Simplex+ measure, this feature automatically prefills the citizen’s income statement with all relevant data conforming to data protection regulations; the declaration receipts and the notification of the final tax calculation can be confirmed electronically. The portadaslfinancas.gov allows secure authentication via the Citizen Card and the Digital Mobile Key, and a complimentary app was made available in 2018 to facilitate the payment of taxes and the consultation of the citizen’s fiscal status.
