We will automatically refund to you any possible excess tax that has been withheld once you have acquired a tax card for pension income.
Once your pension begins, we request a new tax rate from the tax authorities every year.
We annually inform the tax authorities directly about the pension payments you have received and the taxes that have been withheld on them.
If you live outside of Finland permanently and it has been 3 years since you left Finland, we will request a tax card for limited tax liability from the Finnish tax authorities for your pension. For a foreign citizen, however, we will obtain such a tax card immediately upon the start of pension. Read more about taxation for pensioners living abroad
