What to do if you are not authorized?

In case your return has not been approved or yes, but partially, in the application you should consult the reasons and actions that you must carry out to solve it.

The amount of your authorized balance may be partial if there is a difference in the respective information in relation to withholdings, deductible expenses or incentives.

You can do this if your credit balance was not approved or only partially:

  • Submit a supplementary statement with the inconsistencies corrected
  • Request the return through the Electronic Return Format
