In Finland may increase tax rate on private and municipal property, and undeveloped land. Now the property tax for residential homes varies between 0,37% and 0.8% (in each municipality its own rules). If the government proposal is accepted, then next year it will increase to 0.41% - 0.9%.

The tax levy for undeveloped land is paid in tфинhe amount of 1-4%, and may in the future be increased to 2-6%.


A tax on municipal property and land in Finland at the moment is 0,8 – 1,55% of the taxable base value of the property. In 2017 it may raise to 0.93 – 1.8%.


The proposal of the Finnish government is part of the budget plan of 2017. Increasing tax rates should increase the budget to €50 million.
