The August tax refunds have been paid to 1.9 million personal customers today, the tax administration informs.

For some, the tax refund date is between September and December. However, the amount of the tax refund to be paid into the account may be different, as stated in the tax decision.

The time of payment of the tax refund depends on when the customer's taxation has ended. You can see the end date of your own taxation and the payment date of the tax refund from the tax decision or OmaVeros you have received. If the taxation has not yet ended, a new taxation decision will be made by the end of October.

If the tax refund has not yet been credited to your account, you may want to check the situation through OmaVero. Here are the most common reasons:

1. The tax refund has been used to pay taxes

The tax refund is used to pay taxes from the date of the end of taxation until the 4th of the following month. The tax refund is used for unpaid taxes immediately after the end of taxation and for taxes due on their due date. For example, in August, the refund of those awaiting their tax refund could have been used for possible previous tax debts already in June and 1.7. inheritance tax due on its due date.

2. The customer has completed or corrected the pre-filled tax return

The amount of the tax refund and the date of payment may then change.

3. The spouse changed his or her own tax return

The taxation of the spouses always ends at the same time and the date of payment of the tax refund is also the same for the spouses. Thus, if a spouse changed his or her own taxation, the date of payment of the other spouse's tax refund may also change. A new tax ruling stating a new tax return date will arrive for both spouses by the end of October.

4. The tax administration received information about the customer's taxation from elsewhere and taxation has continued

In this case, the amount of the tax refund and the date of payment may also change.

5. The correct account number is not known to the Tax Administration

If the account has been closed and the new account number has not been notified to the Tax Administration or the account number has not been notified at all, the tax refund will be paid as a payment order through Osuuspankki. The bank will send a notification when the tax refund is available from the branches that provide cash services to Osuuspankki.

6. The customer has a debt on foreclosure

The enforcement authority has used the tax refund to pay the debts in the enforcement. The client has received this information from the enforcement authority.

7. The tax refund is less than 10 euros

If the tax refund is less than 10 euros, it will not be paid.

8. Tax returns have not been filed

If the tax return (eg VAT return) has been forgotten or there have been material deficiencies in the returns, no tax refund will be paid. The refund will be paid once the notification deficiencies have been rectified.
