How to view and pay back taxes in MyTax

You can see the amount and payment date of your back taxes on the MyTax home page after you have received a tax decision.

You can pay your back taxes on the current day in MyTax or copy the payment details from MyTax and pay the tax later in your online bank.

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

    You can see the amount and due date of your back taxes under Payment status on the home page.

    If your tax assessment has not ended yet, the information is displayed at Tax decision on income tax below the Payment status section.

    Please note: You can see the amount of your back taxes in MyTax only after you have received a tax decision.

    If you or your spouse make corrections to your tax returns, MyTax will not show the back taxes. Instead, you will see the text “Your return is being processed”. You can see the back taxes, if any, in MyTax only after you have received a new tax decision. The back tax amount and date of payment may change.

    The back tax amount will be shown under Income tax decision until your tax assessment is completed. Please note that if you pay back taxes before the tax assessment is completed, the amount shown on the home page will not change.
