Ordering a tax card when working while studying

  1. Select “Tax cards and prepayments” under “Activities” on the MyTax home page.

  2. Click “Request a new tax card”.

  3. 4. In the first stage, you will see your relevant taxpayer details. If the details are correct, proceed to stage 2. Pre-completed income and deductions.

  4. In the second stage, you will see the Tax Administration’s records on your pay. Check your income and make the necessary changes.

    Example: If you expect changes in the amount of pay you receive, select either “I am submitting an estimate of the entire year’s pay” or “I am submitting an estimate of the pay for the remaining year”.

    Make a total calculation of wages, salaries, holiday bonuses and fringe benefits that you get from all paid work during the entire year. Enter the total gross amount of pay, i.e. do not subtract taxes or charges that have been collected.

    Do not include study grants in your calculation of pay. Report these types of income in the next stage.

    Once everything is correct, proceed to stage 3. Other income.

  5. Report study grants paid by Kela by selecting “Yes” for “Study grant”.

  6. State how much study grant you receive each month. Also state whether Kela withholds taxes from the study grant.

    Once everything is correct, proceed to stage 4. Other deductions.

  7. Report your deductions and tax credit here.

    Example: If you want to file commuting expenses, select “Yes” for “Travel expenses”. (See instructions for filing travel expenses in MyTax)

    Once everything is correct, proceed to stage 5. Delivery method.

  8. Select the tax card’s date of validity and delivery method.

    You can choose to receive the tax card only in MyTax or, if you wish, it can also be sent by mail to your address or your employer’s address.

  9. Check the details before submitting them.

    If needed, you can still make corrections. You can return to earlier stages by clicking “Previous”.

    If you wish to continue filling in the details later, select “Save as unfinished”. The Tax Administration will not process the tax return before you have submitted it.

  10. If the details are correct, click “Submit”.

    The new tax card will be delivered to the recipient of your choice. The tax card’s details are always displayed in MyTax.
