Children and young people – first tax card

You need a tax card for summer jobs and for other work. Check with the employer or payor of other income how they want to receive your tax card information.

At the turn of the year, we send tax cards to all young people who will be 16, 17, 18, 19 or 20 years old in 2023.

Your card is for an annual gross income of 10,000 euros, unless our records from previous years indicate that you have been paid more in the past.

Order a new tax card if necessary

If the tax rate seems too low, order a new tax card online. The tax rate on the tax card can be based on an annual income ceiling.

It is intended for employment income, and it has just one income ceiling for the entire year.

You cannot order a tax card online if you do not have online banking codes or if it is your first tax card.

Parents can order a tax card for their children.

Guardians can order tax cards online for their minors.
