Notify the Tax Administration of the contact person’s address

You can either include the address of the death estate’s contact person in the deed of inventory, or you can add the address when you use MyTax to send the deed of inventory to the Tax Administration. After that, the estate’s shareholders must assume responsibility for updating the estate’s address information in the Tax Administration’s database.

This means that if the contact person moves house and submits the legally required Notification of move (muuttoilmoitus; flyttningsanmälan) to the Digital and Population Data Services agency (DVV), the Tax Administration’s records concerning the death estate are not updated.

How to notify a change of address

The letter of authorisation was issued to you in 2016 or later:

The estate’s address is updated simultaneously with your personal address information when you submit a Notification of move (muuttoilmoitus; flyttningsanmälan) to the Digital and Population Data Services agency. This means that you do not need to send a notice of change of address to the Tax Administration.

The letter of authorisation was issued to you earlier than in 2016:

Call the Tax Administration’s service number +358 29 497 002 (Income tax return, standard call rates).

When you log in to MyTax to send the deed of inventory to the Tax Administration, you can indicate that the address of an estate shareholder will be the estate’s postal address. You can fill in the address on Form 3630 under “Contact person’s information” — Kuolinpesän yhteyshenkilönä toimivan osakkaan tiedot.

Otherwise, you should provide the estate’s address information in writing, either by post or by visiting a local tax office. You cannot change the address by telephone or on the web.

Changing the address information of an estate is possible in the following circumstances:

  • You can present a written document concerning the address change, signed by all the estate shareholders.
  • You are the estate’s administrator and you have a copy of the letter of appointment issued to you by a court of law.
  • You are the executor of a will, and the will has become legally binding, or the period has ended for making claims against the will.

Changing the address

  1. Notify the Tax Administration of a change of address on the “Letter of authorisation for managing the tax affairs of an estate” – Valtakirja kuolinpesän veroasioita varten
  2. Enter the new adress under “The authorised agent’s information” — Valtuutetun tiedot.
  3. If the estate’s new address is the only reason you are sending the form for, tick the Change of address box.
  4. Ask every shareholder to put their signature on the form.

Please note that you can also use the form for giving an authorisation to someone for dealing with the estate’s taxes. The authorisation is in force until further notice. If you are the authorised agent you can take care of the estate’s taxes independently. This means that there is no need for any further letters of authorisation to be given you by all the estate shareholders for upcoming tax-related matters.
