Purpose: The objectives of the Polish Deal include a plan for better and more financially supported healthcare system, lower taxes and higher remunerations. The assumption of the government’s development plan is to recover from the crisis generated by COVID-19 pandemics and create better life conditions for all citizens. Accounting offices have been especially interested and obliged to thorough analysis of dynamic taxes modifications. This publication aims at presenting challenges encountered by these entities due to numerous amendment of tax regulations. The specific objective is the analysis of chosen tax modifications presented to citizens and in many cases dealt with by accounting offices. Design/Methodology/Approach: Critical analysis of literature and legal acts, case studies, logical reasoning. Findings: In the opinion of many owners of accounting offices, but not only, the regulations should enter into force with a sufficiently long vacatio legis, giving the opportunity to acquire knowledge, test and implement software, and communicate with taxpayers or employees. Too high dynamics of tax changes introduced in a short period of time contributes significantly to the decrease in the quality of services provided and an increase in risk for accounting and bookkeeping offices. Practical implications: The presentation of changes in the Polish Governance in the area of personal income tax is a valuable overview and source of information for a wide range of practitioners. Originality/value: In addition to the presentation of the introduced changes, the article presents specific examples of calculations based on the latest provisions of the Polish Order of July 2022.
