Whenever you pay taxes, you must enter a reference number

The Tax Administration has bank accounts in Danske Bank and Nordea. It is not enough to just state the bank account number. You must also enter the reference number. This is necessary, so your payment can be matched with the right tax. Every taxpayer has a personalised reference number. Correspondingly, every type of tax has their own reference number. Your reference numbers remain the same.

Example: You receive a reference number for real estate tax on your real estate tax decision. You can also find that number in MyTax. You can use the same reference number for this year’s real estate tax and for paying real estate taxes in future. However, this number is for real estate taxes only. Do not use it for other taxes. In the same way, it is a personalised reference number only for you. Do not use it if you are paying real estate taxes on someone else’s (like your spouse’s) behalf.

Please add the bank reference number to all your payments. Enter it in the “reference number” field. If there is no reference number field, or if you cannot enter the reference in the field, write the reference in the message field.
