Financial difficulties – business taxpayers, companies, corporate entities
If you are behind in your payments, the Tax Administration will send you a reminder. If you are unable to pay the tax by the due date given in the reminder, you can ask for an extension of due date.
With the reminder, you get additional time to pay
A payment reminder about unpaid taxes is sent as part of the monthly summary in MyTax. The summary indicates the due date for paying the tax. In addition, the reminder tells what is the consequence of not paying by the extended due date. The summary may also contain a notice on transfer to enforcement. You can check the exact amount to pay, including interest, in MyTax.
