Order a tax card for your pension
You will need a tax card for your pension, because pensions are taxed differently to pay.
Request a tax card in good time, as soon as you have received your pension decision. If you do not have a tax card, your pension will be subject to withholding of 40%.
For your pension income tax card you will need
- the decision on your initial pension
- information on your income from the start of the year
- details on withholding and deductions.
You cannot obtain a tax card without these.
We will deliver the new pension income tax card directly to the pension provider. We can also provide your employer with a tax card for salary income.

When you have ordered a tax card for your pension, the Finnish Tax Administration will automatically send information on your tax rate to your pension provider each year. In addition, details about your tax card will be sent to your home address each year, even though your actual tax card is not sent there. Check these details to ensure that a tax rate has been provided for your pension for the following year. If this information is missing, order a new tax card.
Check the information on the tax return
Around New Year, your pension provider will send you information on the pension paid to you, and the related withholding tax, during the previous year. You will need this information when checking your pre-filled tax return. If information is missing from your tax return, add the missing information and correct the tax return, if necessary.
