I filed my 2012 tax return before 1 April 2013 but didn’t receive a tax assessment before 1 July.

Everybody who filed the 2012 tax return before 1 April 2013, should receive a provisional or even definitive 2012 tax assessment before 1 July 2013. 

The tax authorities have informed us that extra audits of 2012 tax returns have taken place due to the high number of tax refunds. More people have claimed a refund than in previous years. Because of these extra audits the tax authorities didn't succeed in sending everybody a 2012 tax assessment before 1 July 2013. 

The tax authorities have apologized for this and promised that the tax returns will be processed as soon as possible. They also informed us that interest will be paid on the delayed refunds.
