Documents at hand
Always bring your RFC data with you when you need to request an invoice and keep your electronic signature updated to submit your monthly returns and prepare your electronic invoices.

Identify your profile

For example, you will be required to submit your annual statement if you offer professional services, receive income under the salaried or salaried assimilated scheme, have investments abroad or rent real estate.
Even if you have not received income during the year, but you are registered in the Federal Taxpayers Registry (RFC), you will have to file your return in zeros through.
Remember that deductions also have a limit, as they cannot exceed four general minimum annual salaries or 10 percent of your total income. So it is important that you inform yourself so that in case you have to make your annual statement, you can even request a refund if it corresponds to you.
