Activate Suomi.fi Messages and get mail from the authorities electronically
Suomi.fi Messages is a service that the Tax Administration and many other authorities use to notify you when you have received official correspondence to e-services.
For example, you will get an email notification when you have a new tax card, tax return, decision or letter in MyTax.
If you have downloaded the Suomi.fi application on your smartphone, you will get notifications in the app as well.
