Tax cards for 2018 become effective in FebruaryTax Administration Bulletin, 11/22/2017
We send all taxpayers their 2018 cards in December and January by post. They come into force on 1 February 2018 — your 2017 card continues to be valid through 31 January 2018. However, your income limit will again be zero after New Year, and the calculation of income is re-started.
The 2018 calculations for new cards cannot yet be performed online, by phone, or at the tax office. Starting 13 December, Tax Card Online is available at tax.fi/taxcard for revisions of 2018 cards. If you order a new 2018 tax card this way, it becomes effective 1 January 2018 already. Our Live Chat is ready to give you assistance if necessary. From 12 December you are also able to contact us by phone or visit a tax office to ask for a revised 2018 tax card.
About our services on the Web
We send the tax cards for next year to everyone older than 15. Deliveries are completed by mid-January. The tax cards that we send automatically to some 4.8 million taxpayers are usually ready for use and do not require changes. It is nevertheless a good idea to check the income and deductions that your withholding rate is based on.
At tax.fi, you find a lot of information about how to get a new tax card. Launch the Withholding Calculator to check whether your current withholding rate is correct. To perform a test without actually contacting the tax office to get a new card, start the Demo version at tax.fi/taxcard.
