What is even more absurd, it doesn’t matter if you are family or not, if you get an amount of 5000 € total in 3 years, you have to pay gift tax. Which makes it clear that both partners have to have their own income or they have to pay tax for something that is a family sharing.
Partners avoid being liable for gift tax through joint accounts and the daily expenses exception.
I checked that too. It says that the joint account money has to be used both parts benefit. So if one of the partner withdraw some and use for its own benefit, then gift tax comes.

I have a question though, they told me that they are waiting for my residency time to fulfill to make decision. If it’s gonna be negative based on this tax etc, would they still wait for the residency time fulfill to make negative decision?

How many years have you been living in Finland, and how did you receive your various types of residence permit? Did you start off with A or B?

1.5 years B permit (student), 4 years A permit (marriage). Student time wasn’t counted for some reason. I asked why but they haven’t answered.

Thanks! Hoping for the best :)
Queue number is 2740
I had made some mistakes in the travel dates (throughout 8 years of my life in Finland), I have informed them as soon as I noticed, so hopefully it won’t affect it the wrong way... Will share if something else comes up from Migri:)

Check the period of residence calculation method again, there is a line that explains the B time is only calculated in full year. Meaning if you had 1.5 year of B -> 0.75 year in period of residence, it will be rounded down and excluded.

Can you point where does it say that? I could not find such rule.

Hi,

I'm a EU citizen and I've been a temporary from March 2014 to June 2015 and then a permanent from June 2015. Decided recently to apply for citizenship.

I'm still waiting for:
- the results from the YKI test that I sat for on 29.3.
- the palkkatodistus

I've filled in the application and after I get the above two things I'm going to submit it (hopefully by the end of May). I'll attach:
- the scanned title page of my passport
- the scanned kielitodistus
- the palkkatodistus (scanned if on paper, I have no idea in what form I'm going to get it)
- account statements from my bank account for the past six months

One of parts that I found the hardest to fill in the application was the question whether I've been outside of Finland, when, where and for what reason. After I spent several days digging in electronic boarding passes, photos, emails and what not I managed to come up with the nearly exhaustive list of 50 travels. :roll:

Does checking your status affects your application?

I tried to look up for it but couldnt find either. But I remember reading that from the site before. their method for calculating period of residency for B isn’t that straightforward as 1/2 that I am sure
