How to make corrections to a transfer tax return as a real estate agent or securities broker in MyTax

You can only see the transfer tax returns you have previously filed yourself in MyTax.

If someone else has filed the return, you can file a replacement return by selecting Corrections to a previous transfer tax return at the start of the return. After this, proceed to fill in all the required information again. Do the same if you have filed the previous return in another service, such as Lomake.fi, but you now want to make corrections in MyTax.

Note: If the filed return was unnecessary, you can delete the entire return as long as its status is Submitted. If the status of the return is Received, contact the Tax Administration to delete the return.

Do as follows

Log in to MyTax (opens in a new window).

  1. Select Report or request information in a limited scope.

If you want to make corrections to a return you have already filed, there are three ways to do it:

  1. If the status of the return is Submitted and it is still the same day as when you filed the return, you can make changes directly to the return.
  2. If the status of the return is Received, you can copy a previous return as a template that you can edit.
  3. You can fill in all the required details and file the return again.
