Obtain a tax card for pension income when your pension begins
If we have not received your pension income tax card when your pension begins, we will have to withhold 40% tax on your pension. If the amount of your pension increases by more than 20 euros, the tax on the increase is 40%.
We will refund any excess tax withheld from your pension as soon as possible after you have received the pension income tax card from the tax authority.
How to get a new tax card
- From the MyTax service at vero.fi/omavero
- From the Finnish Tax Administration’s service number at 029 497 000 or
- from a Finnish tax office.
The Tax Administration recommends that its customers primarily use the online service. When you order a tax card, the tax authorities will send it directly to Varma.
To obtain a tax card, you are required to have:
- a pension decision
- information about your earnings at the start of the year, withholding tax and deductions.
