Activate Suomi.fi Messages in MyTax and get notifications about your taxesNews, 3/1/2023
It is now possible to activate Suomi.fi Messages via MyTax. If you activate Suomi.fi Messages now, you will get an email notifying you when your pre-completed tax return is available in MyTax this spring. You can also find preliminary information on any tax refund or back taxes in MyTax. Be sure to activate the messages by 16 March.
As a subscriber to Suomi.fi Messages, you will receive an email whenever a new tax-related message has arrived to you in MyTax. If you have downloaded the Suomi.fi application on your smartphone, you will get notifications in the app as well.
You will get a notification as soon as the following are available in MyTax:
- a pre-completed tax return that is ready for checking
- a new tax decision or information on tax refund or back taxes
- a new tax card
- a new message or letter.
If you activate Suomi.fi messages, tax returns, letters and decisions will no longer be sent to you by paper mail – you can find them in MyTax instead.
