Student loan tax deduction international situation

Lukematon viesti Kirjoittaja Van den Berg » 21 Heinä 2021, 00:41

Dear Kela, I moved to Finland 3 years ago and have been working at the University of Oulu as a researcher for 3 years with a salary. I have acquired my Bachelor and Master degrees within the targeted time in the Netherlands, which is my home country. For acquiring my Bachelor and Master degrees I have gotten a student loan from the Dutch government. The Bachelor, Masters, as well as my current job at Oulun Yliopisto are in Archaeology, so my degrees in the Netherlands have been very important for the job I got in Finland.

Now here is my question: Can I deduct the amount I pay for my student loan every month from the taxes I pay in Finland? Or can I deduct something related to my student loan in any other way?

Best wishes,

M.

Hi!

Thank you for your question.

In student loan compensation Kela can take account only Finnish government guaranteed student loans in accordance with the Act on Student Financial Air. More information Student loan tax deduction - kela.fi

Please, contact tax office to find out more about your tax deduction. Unfortunately Kela is not knowledgeable about tax matters.
