The fastest way to get your tax refund in Portugal

As a rule, automatic IRS processing offers a quicker method to potentially receive refunds.

Based on experience, the automatic IRS process tends to expedite tax refunds for taxpayers due to its simplified delivery mechanism.

In a few days, you can verify your eligibility for automatic income declaration delivery on the Finance website.

To check, simply log in to the Finance Portal using your identification password. If you don't see an IRS shortcut on the home screen, navigate to 'All Services' in the side menu, then scroll down to 'IRS' and select 'Automatic IRS', as advised by DECO PROteste.

Alternatively, you can use the search bar to find 'IRS' and select the 'IRS automático' option.

"If you are not eligible for automatic IRS, you will receive the message 'As you do not meet all the conditions required to be covered by the Automatic Income Declaration, you must submit an IRS declaration, model 3, under the general terms'. In this situation, you must manually complete your declaration," explains the consumer protection organization.

The window for submitting the IRS declaration for income earned in 2023 extends from April 1st to June 30th.

As DECO PROteste notes, the "automatic IRS generally provides a faster method for receiving potential refunds."
