Penalties threatens many people and businesses. They risk being ranked among the defaulters of taxes because they paid on canceled accounts of the tax office. 150 million crowns landed on cancelled accounts during January 2015. The largest amount is attributable to tax on personal income. 199 tax offices, including their bank accounts intended for the payment of taxes in the Czech National Bank, was dissolved on 31 December 2012.

After the 1st January 2015, all tax payments paid to the cancelled bank accounts of Tax Offices will be returned back to the taxpayer. Two-year transition period finished as of the last day of December 2014, when the bank re‑routes incorrectly received tax payments to the correct accounts automatically.

If the taxpayer pays his tax obligations to the cancelled account, he is risking of not paying tax obligation in due time and might be penalized for delay.

A correct format of the account number consists of two parts divided by a hyphen. The first part is a bank account prefix followed by basic part and a bank code (prefix-basic/0710). Prefixes which indicate the particular taxes, as well as account numbers, can be found on the website of the Ministry of Finance.

The tax subject can pay tax through postal order type A or by bank transfer or by internet banking.
