The influence of the charge imbalance effect on a system of intrinsic Josephson junctions of high temperature superconductors under external electromagnetic radiation is investigated. We find that the charge imbalance is responsible for the slope of the Shapiro step in the IV-characteristic. The nonperiodic boundary conditions shift the Shapiro step from the canonical position which is determined by the frequency of the external radiation. We also find how the system parameters influence the shift of the Shapiro step.
