Lomake.fi will close down – returns can be filed in MyTax in future
The Lomake.fi service will close down for all users on 29 February 2024. For real estate agents and securities brokers, the service closes down earlier, on 31 December 2023. After this date, real estate agents and securities brokers can no longer file transfer tax returns in Lomake.fi.
