Deadline for General Tax Credit request


I‘m Brazilian and I‘m preparing my tax declaration for the first time. I was informed that my partner (who didn‘t work in 2015) is eligible to have a refund of the general tax credit. Could you inform me when is the deadline for this request?


If your partner hasn’t been invited to file a tax return then there is no specific deadline (this year). However, if your partner would like to claim a refund this will have to be done within 5 years after the end of the tax year. So your partner has some time.
