On Thursday, November 2, voivodeship offices, tax offices, customs and tax offices, tax administration chambers and the National Tax Information will be closed. Officials received time off for National Independence Day, which falls on Saturday this year. However, the Ministry of Finance reminds that many tax matters can be settled 24 hours a day online.
This year, National Independence Day (November 11) falls on Saturday, which means that the employer is obliged to set a day off on a different date. The Labor Code guarantees a day off for holidays falling on Saturday. Some officials will have a day off on Thursday, November 2.
This is the result of the ordinance on designating days off for members of the civil service corps, which was signed by the Prime Minister last week Mateusz Morawiecki.
“The Prime Minister signed a regulation on designating days off from work for members of the Civil Service Corps: November 2, 2023 – for National Independence Day, which falls on Saturday, November 11, 2023, January 2, 2024 – for Epiphany , which falls on Saturday, January 6, 2024.” – it said in a statement Ministry of Finance.
