Financial difficulties – individual taxpayers

If you do not pay a tax on time, you will receive a payment reminder as part of your tax summary. The reminder gives you more time to pay the tax. However, late-payment charges will still be collected on the tax, starting from the day following the due date.

If you still cannot pay the tax by the due date stated in the payment reminder, you can request a payment arrangement for temporary financial difficulties in MyTax.

You can also ask for help and advice from your local debt counsellor or from the Finnish Guarantee Foundation. If you have serious, long-term financial difficulties, you may be ordered to enter a debt adjustment programme by a court of law. If you wish to enter a debt adjustment programme, submit an application to a court.
