Amount of car tax

The Tax Administration cannot provide preliminary calculations or estimates on the probable level of car tax or the taxable value of various vehicles. The Tax Administration’s decision on car tax contains the information you need on how much you must pay.

You can make estimates yourself:

Estimate how much you must pay, based on your car data

1

Look up the current market value

Use the “Price quotes of vehicles” e-service providing market prices (ajoneuvojen hintatietopalvelu, in Finnish only). The information is based on the asking prices of cars currently being offered for sale in Finland.

2

Look up the rate of car tax

Open the tax table to look up the rate. To find the appropriate rate, you must input the carbon dioxide value (CO2) or total weight and what fuel the engine runs on.

3

Calculate your estimate of car tax

Having collected the above data, you are now ready to perform the following calculation:

vehicle’s market value × car tax rate

= amount you must pay (the estimated car tax)

Estimate how much you must pay, based on your motorcycle data

1

Look up the rate of car tax

Open the Motorcycle or other L-category vehicle to look up the rate, depending on engine displacement or on what fuel the engine uses.

2

Calculate your estimate for the amount of the tax

Apply the percentage rate on the probable selling price of the motorcycle. If necessary, you can look up the price in the “Price quotes of vehicles” e-service (Ajoneuvojen hintatietopalvelu, only available in Finnish). The information is based on the asking prices of motorcycles currently being offered for sale in Finland.  

Estimate how much you must pay by browsing previous decisions on car tax

You can look into decisions from past years in order to collect enough information for a rough estimate. The following tables contain old decisions on car tax:

When you make the estimate, you must remember that market values change over time, and vehicles of the same make and model may be taxed differently at different times.
