Internal Revenue Service encourages operations to regularize rural activities


The Internal Revenue Service has launched Operation Declara Graos – SP, which offers rural producers in the state of São Paulo the opportunity to resolve disputes relating to the submission of personal income tax returns. This work is already underway in the states of Minas Gerais, Paraná, Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul.

The operation was born from the analysis of electronic invoices issued by companies that purchased goods from rural producers. By crossing these invoices with the data contained in the computerized systems of the Internal Revenue Service, it was found that more than 14,000 taxpayers had not filed income tax returns between the years 2017 and 2021, even if they had obtained taxable income from rural activities in the upper regions. amounts to R $ 142,798.50 per year, a condition which makes the submission of the declaration compulsory.

Correction of attached values

Another target situation of the operation concerns taxpayers who submitted the declaration in the years mentioned, but did not enter the appropriate amounts in the annex of the rural activity.

This omission of income from rural activities amounted to around 9.7 billion reais in the state of São Paulo, between fiscal years 2017 to 2021, with around 533 million reais not collected in the public tax coffers. on income.

The operation in the State will be carried out in stages. Starting this week, taxpayer groups begin to receive correspondence from the IRS advising them of the need for regularization.

It is not necessary to wait to receive the letter or to go to a tax office to make the correction. If the taxpayer finds that he has not submitted the declaration in previous years, he must provide for the transmission of the omitted declarations.

Anyone who submitted the declaration without completing the rural activity annex must correct it by correctly completing this annex. The declarations for each year of verification of outstanding issues, from the year 2017 (calendar year 2016), must be regularized.

The advantage for the taxpayer who adheres to self-regulation is to avoid a possible tax action, with the imposition of an automatic fine which varies between 75% and 225% on the calculated tax.
