Request for a "voorlopige teruggaaf" filed by mistake


Question:
 
Dear sir or madam, while trying to file myself a tax return for 2012, I filed by mistake a request for a provisional assesment for the year 2012 (2 weeks ago). I also submitted with the help of a tax return consultant a good tax return for 2012 with the M form. Now I received a letter from the belastingdienst asking me for my account number in order to proceed with the provisional assesment for 2012. I realized that I should not have used the program I used since I moved in the Netherlands in 2012. Should I send a letter to the tax service in order to normalize the situation? Will they just ignore my request since its for 2012? Do you provide those services?
 
Answer:

You mention that you filed a request for a provisional assessment for 2012. This seems strange since a request for a provisional assessment can only be filed for the current year, so for 2013. A request for 2012 can‘t be filed since that year already ended. Instead the applicable tax return must be filed. The tax authorities should indeed ignore the request.

The M form must be filed on paper and can‘t be filed electronically.

The tax authorities will have received something they can process since they have sent you a request to provide your bank account number. You will have to provide the account number any way to receive the refund based on the M form which was filed for you.

If you did file a request for a provisional assessment you can cancel it again by filing another request showing a nil result. But you can wait with this till you receive a tax assessment from the tax authorities. You can also file a letter of objection once you received the tax assessment.

Check the correspondence which you receive(d) from the tax authorities thoroughly.
