Taxation of earnings-related allowance and submitting a revised tax card

As a general rule, the unemployment fund receives tax withholding information directly from the Tax Administration as of 1 of February 2021. It is not necessary to send paper versions of tax cards that are meant for salary or revised tax cards meant for benefits to the unemployment fund.

In January taxes will be withheld according to the tax information that was valid in December 2020, but tax accumulation records will be reset at the turn of the year. Withholding rate from benefits is always at least 25 per cent, if the tax card is meant for salary.

If you want to change the tax percentage rate, submit a revised tax card to the unemployment fund. Make sure that the revised tax card is meant for benefits, because the unemployment fund cannot use a tax card that is meant for salary.

You can order and submit a revised tax card for benefits by using the Tax Administration’s MyTax service. Go to MyTax service by clicking this.
