What to do:

  • You receive your tax card for 2022 in December or January. You can make changes to your tax card after receiving it.
  • Your tax card for 2021 will be used for the income you receive in January 2022, unless you have requested changes to your 2022 tax card.
  • You will need your tax card for pension income by February 2022. If you do not deliver your pension tax card to the payor, they will withhold 40% of tax on your pension.

For your pension income tax card you will need

  • the decision on your initial pension
  • information on your income from the start of the year

If you receive care allowance, you will need a special tax card for this.

To obtain the tax card, you will need information on the start date of the payment of care allowance and how much is paid each month.

Submit the tax card to the payer of the care allowance.
