How to request a revised card for 2022 in MyTax

Increasing the card's percentage rate may be necessary if it was calculated based on deductions that you no longer have in 2022 (such as expenses for travel and commuting, but you no longer travel as often).

Changing your 2022 rate may help you avoid having to pay back taxes next year.

Your 2022 tax card contains an income ceiling for 11 months (from February to December). The tax card shows an estimate of your income for the year, and the tax rate is based on this amount.

If your income is considerably lower or your deductions are considerably higher than what is stated on the tax decision enclosed with your tax card, you can request a lower tax rate online or at a tax office.

See the guidance for using MyTax: How to order a tax card in MyTax

If you do not request a decreased tax rate, all the excess taxes withheld from your income due to your high tax rate will be refunded to you with interest. Even if you  request the change later in the year, you will receive the same benefit during 2022.
