If you pay real estate tax late

If you pay your real estate tax after the due date, you must also pay late-payment interest. Pay the interest together with the actual tax. You must also pay late-payment interest on any punitive tax increase. In 2021, the interest rate is 7%. 

You can see the amount of unpaid tax with interest in MyTax or you can calculate the late-payment interest with the interest calculator.

You must use your personal reference number for real estate tax when making the payment. You can see your reference number in your real estate tax decision and in MyTax.

Summary reminds you of unpaid taxes

If you have unpaid taxes, your tax summary will include a reminder.  You will receive a summary for the months for which you have overdue taxes. If you have activated electronic messages (suomi.fi/messages), you will receive the summary in MyTax only. 

You will receive 1–3 payment reminders in your summaries before we transfer the tax to the enforcement authorities for recovery. The number of payment reminders depends on whether you have other unpaid taxes. Read more about the summary.
