Rental income for 2022: How to file in MyTax

You can report rental income for 2022 for your tax card or make prepayments for the rental income.

  • When you report rental income for your tax card, the tax on the rental income is taken into account in the tax rate indicated on your tax card. In practice, you pay the tax on the rental income in connection with the tax withheld from your wages, for example.
  • When you request prepayments for rental income, you receive separate instructions on how to pay the prepayments. You need to pay the tax in 2–12 instalments during the year. The number of instalments depends on the amount of tax.
