Current about tax cards

If you have been a member of Aaria since the beginning of the year, we automatically get the details of your annual wage-based tax deduction card, which becomes valid on 1 February 2023, from the Finnish Tax Administration. You therefore do not have to send us your tax deduction card. If you have already ordered a revised tax card from the Tax Administration for the benefit for 2023, it will continue to be valid starting from February. The wage-based tax card for 2023 will become valid at the start of February, unless you have sent us a revised tax card issued for the benefit. Please note that we will withhold tax according to the payment date. This means that we will use the new wage-based tax card on the earnings-related allowance for January that will be paid in February. Please note that when we use wage-based tax deduction card information, withholding tax on the benefit is always at least 25%, even if the percentage marked on your tax card is lower than that. If you wish, you can request a revised tax deduction card to account for your benefits from the Finnish Tax Administration. If we can base your allowance on a revised tax deduction card, we can deduct tax at source based on the tax rate indicated in the card.

How do I get a revised tax deduction card for the benefit?

You can request a revised tax deduction card from your local tax office or via the Finnish Tax Administration’s MyTax service. When you report the Unemployment Fund Aria as the payer of the benefit, the Tax Administration will provide us with the information about your tax card electronically within 1–2 business days. We will use the information in your revised tax deduction card from the day we receive the information. In the MyTax service, you cannot separately select a revised tax card for the benefit. The service will make you a benefit tax card when you report an estimate of your benefit under Other income / Benefits in the tax card application. You will find the amount of your benefits in your unemployment fund’s decision or your payment notice. If you have not yet received our decision on your benefits, you can use our daily allowance calculator to estimate the amount.
