Taxation for Finnish nationals relocated to the US

Post by nokiassa » Sun Mar 14, 2021 6:32 pm

Hi,

Do I have to pay tax to Finland if I relocate to the US?
I can not find USA in the list from vero service: https://www.vero.fi/en/individuals/tax- ... -treaties/

Also regarding the 3 year rules: https://www.vero.fi/en/individuals/tax- ... 3year_rul/
If I own an apartment in Finland, and then rent it our during the time I am away from Finland. Would I still be considered as Finnish tax resident and need to pay tax from my US income for that 3 year period?

Thanks!

Finland does have a tax treaty with the US:

https://www.vero.fi/en/detailed-guidanc ... x_treatie/

You will need to figure out your:

1) tax residency status in Finland
* Three year rule applies here
2) tax residency status in USA
3) tax residency status under the treaty
4) how the treaty treats your income based on the above

For rental income, Finland will tax it regardless of you tax status.
