The State Revenue Service (VID) however, asks abstaining from submitting one's income declaration online on March 1 as the system may not hold the stress if too many taxpayers submit their declarations simultaneously.
Indeed, that seems to be the case now with access to the electronic declaration system limited, the tax service tweeted. "Access to submitting declarations has been restored, but it's limited."
Deklarāciju iesniegšanas ir atjaunota, bet limitēta. pic.twitter.com/Q88uUjCxpz— VID (@vid_gov) March 1, 2019
VID told LTV that on March 1, just 15 minutes after midnight there were 26,500 concurrent connections with people trying to submit their last year's income declaration.
VID says there are significantly fewer people than last year appearing to submit their declarations in person at their offices.
