The Finnish Terminology Centre carried out a terminology project during 2018 for the Finnish Tax Administration. The goal of the project was to prepare a terminology on such concepts that the taxpayers find difficult, for example, to help the users of the Tax Administration’s web pages and e-services to understand the taxation terms more easily.

The taxation terminology contains information on 70 concepts related mainly to personal taxation. The terminology clarifies the content of the concepts with the help of definitions and complementing notes and gives recommendations on Finnish terms. In order to help the understanding of concept systems, concepts are also illustrated with concept diagrams.

The actual terminology work was finished in December 2018. In the beginning of 2019 the terminology was on an internal comments round in the Tax Administration. The terminology was published in March 2019.
