How to check the amount and payment of your tax refund in MyTax
You can see how much you receive as your tax refund on the home page, inside an orange frame. The amount you can receive is shown on the home page from the day when you get your tax decision for the year. It continues to be there until the refund is paid to you. If changes are made to your tax assessment and a new tax decision is sent to you, the shown amount will change accordingly.
Click “When is the tax refund paid out?” to see the date when we pay you the refund. However, if you or your spouse have submitted corrections or additions, you will only see the “Your return is being processed” message instead of a date. The new payment date will be displayed after you have received your new, revised tax decision.
Another way to check the information regarding your refund is to click “Individual income tax” on the home page.
This page shows the end date for your tax assessment, your tax refund amount, and the refund date. If changes are made to your assessment and a new tax decision is sent to you, the refund amount showing on this page will also change accordingly.
The payment date of your refund will change if you or your spouse make changes to the pre-completed tax return. In this case, you will see the “Your return is being processed” message until you receive your new, revised tax decision.
Please note that if the Tax Administration has used your refund to cover your overdue taxes, this is not reflected in the refund amount you see on the home page and under “Individual income tax” in MyTax. Check the “Payments and refunds made” tab to see how the amount has been used. Read more: Visit MyTax to see how your tax refund has covered your unpaid taxes.
Between your tax assessment end date and the 4th of the following month, the Tax Admininistration can use your tax refund:
- to settle any unpaid taxes immediately after your assessment has ended, and
- to pay any unpaid taxes immediately on their due dates.
