The date of 2011 refund payments is 5 December 2012, due dates of 2011 outstanding taxes: 3 December 2012 and 4 February 2013
Tax Administration Bulletin, 9/27/2012
On 5 December 2012, the Tax Administration will transfer the 2011 refund amounts directly to each taxpayer's bank, to the bank account that you as a taxpayer have notified. To make sure of a fast transfer of funds, please check your bank account number as it is printed on the Pre-completed tax return form or the Assessment decision form.
To facilitate direct transfer of the upcoming tax refunds, the last date to notify the Tax Administration of new or changed bank account numbers is Thursday 22 November 2012 (midnight). Instead of sending an online notice you can send us a letter to notify your bank account number, but the process is a little slower because the last date to send it to the Tax Administration will be Wednesday 7 November 2012. Only one bank account number at a time can be saved in the taxpayer database of the Tax Administration. The traditional paper-printed Bank Account Notice form is Form no 7208e.

If you have not notified the Tax Administration of your bank account number you will receive your refund in the form of a paper-printed payment order. They will be sent off to refund recipients starting 12 December 2012 by the postal service.
If the bank account number has not been made available to the Tax Administration we will send the refund to the taxpayer as a payment order via Pohjola Bank. We will also send a letter to the taxpayer's postal address recorded in our database to notify of it. The payment orders can only be sent if the taxpayer's postal address is in Finland. After receiving the letter the taxpayer is entitled to cash it in any Finnish branch of the OP-Pohjola Bank within 28 days after the date printed on the letter. For more information, read the text on the payment order itself.

For taxpayers who must pay an outstanding tax for the 2011 taxable year the due dates are 3 December 2012 — first installment, and 4 February 2013 — second installment. The bank transfer forms have already been sent as enclosures to the Pre-completed tax return forms in Spring 2012. If you have had nothing to add or correct in your Pre-completed tax return, the enclosed bank transfer forms will continue to be valid for you, so please keep them to settle your 2011 taxes. If your 2011 tax assessment should change or be adjusted, the Tax Administration will send you a revised Notice of Assessment and a new set of bank transfer forms.
