Refunds can be postponed or changed

You receive interest on your tax refund
The Tax Administration pays credit interest on refunds. The interest is not shown on your tax decision. The Tax Administration will add the interest to your refund when paying it. In 2023, the rate for credit interest is 0.5%. In 2024, the interest rate will be 2%.
