Monotax: how to recategorize for January

The recategorization of the monotax is enabled until January 20 and the amount corresponding to the new category will be paid in February, confirmed the AFIP.

The agency explained that to determine whether to change categories, taxpayers must control the gross income of the last 12 months to compare them with the new values ​​of the categories that are available at

The amount corresponding to the new category will be paid in February, the month following the recategorization. The maximum billing values ​​and the monthly obligation of the three components of the monotax (tax, health and pension) increased in 2022 by 26% compared to the second half of 2021.

The collecting body stressed that recategorization is a mandatory procedure that monotributistas must carry out to determine if, according to the income of the last 12 months, it is up to them to change the category.

In case of maintaining the same category, it is not necessary to carry out any procedure and it is not appropriate to recategorize if less than six months have elapsed since enrollment in the simplified regime. On the other hand, if the period is between six and less than 12 months, the income must be annualized to recategorize.

Monotributistas who have paid in time and form at least nine of the 12 monthly obligations of 2021 will have access to a one-month reimbursement of the tax component. The refund will be automatically credited to the bank accounts or credit cards attached as a means of payment.
