Are you coming to Finland for work and need a tax card or a tax number and a tax card?

If you do not have a Finnish personal identity code, call our service number +35829 497 050. Our customer service advisors will tell you what to do. You do not have to visit a tax office. These simplified rules are in effect up to 30 September 2021. Read more: A foreign worker can get a tax card or tax number without visiting the tax office.
Opening hours of tax offices have been restricted. We do not recommend visiting tax offices.

If you have a Finnish personal identity code and you are able to log in to MyTax, you can use MyTax to have your tax number entered into the Public Register of Tax Numbers. See guide on how to add the number to the register yourself

When you come to Finland to work, your tax treatment depends on the length of your stay. The treatment also depends on the country of the employer, i.e. whether you work for a Finnish employer or for a foreign one. Additionally, special tax rules apply to certain professions and types of work.
