A new PIT-2 form template will come into force from 2023. It has been tailored to the provisions of Polish Order 2.0 and is expected to facilitate submitting taxpayer declarations and requests to the payer for the purposes of calculating monthly PIT advances.
PIT-2 version 9 will become effective from 1 January 2023. The new form includes the changes made by Polish Order 2.0 and is addressed to a wider group of taxpayers than its earlier version. It also combines several other declarations and requests into a single form, constituting a super tax form.
The new PIT-2 (9) template, under the full name PIT TAXPAYER DECLARATIONS / REQUEST for the purpose of calculating monthly personal income tax advances, can be submitted by employees (including employees with multiple jobs), contractors, persons performing work under a contract for specific tasks, members of management boards and managers on contracts.

Under the new provisions, the PIT-2 form can be submitted at any time, not just before the payment of the first remuneration in a given year as it used to be. PIT-2 in version 9 refers to income earned as from 1 January 2023, so in theory taxpayers will be submitting the new form in 2023, but there are also no obstacles to file it earlier.
Moreover, it is important to note that there is no obligation to re-submit the declaration just because the form has been updated to a new one, this applies to situations in which there are no changes relevant to the calculation of the taxpayer’s advance payment.
However, if there are changes relevant to the calculation of advance income tax for a given taxpayer, then the taxpayer is required to submit an update declaration, i.e. PIT-2 version 9 in 2023. The form offers the option to amend or withdraw previously submitted requests or declarations.
Polish Order 2.0 has changed the rules on the use of the tax-reducing amount. From 1 January 2023, a taxpayer may indicate up to 3 payers, i.e. employers, contracting parties and the Social Insurance Institution (ZUS) to reduce PIT advances by PLN 3600, whereas the tax-reducing amount will be as follows:
