Prepayments – individual taxpayers

The amount of your total prepayments is based on an estimate of taxable income for the entire year. If income decreases, or expenses grow higher, or do not match the estimate you had made, we recommend that you ask for changes to your prepayments. You should do this so as to avoid back taxes.

How to have your prepayments changed


Now you have more time to request prepayment or changes to the amounts to be prepaid. Instead of until the end of the year, you can now submit your request until the Tax Administration has completed your tax assessment. You can see the end date for your assessment on your tax decision or in MyTax.

Additional prepayment

If at year end, the total paid-in amount is not enough, we recommend you ask for an additional prepayment to be calculated for you.

What is meant by 'prepayments'?

When you receive income, you are expected to pay tax on it. Most people pay their income tax by having their employers withhold an amount at the percentage rate printed on their tax card. If your payor is not withholding tax directly on the income you receive from them – for example, if you have rented out an apartment and receive rental income for it – you must pay the income tax in the form of prepayments. Typically, private individuals who must make prepayments are those who are self-employed, have a trade name or business name (T:mi), and are registered in the prepayment register.

What kind of income is taxed by way of prepayments?

For most private individuals, income subject to prepayments is

  • Rental income
  • Capital gains from a sold asset/property
  • Income from agriculture, and income from self-employed business operations.
