Obligation to pay the TV fee has ended 2013

Obligation to pay the TV fee has ended. As of 1 January 2013, the operations of the Finnish Broadcasting Company will be financed by a public service broadcasting tax (also called YLE Tax) collected by the Finnish Tax Administration.

The Finnish Tax Administration's website provides further information on the public service broadcasting tax at www.vero.fi.

FICORA refunded excess TV fee payments and continued debt collection of unpaid TV fees until 31 December 2014.

Matured TV fees were no longer collected after the beginning of 2015 because the costs incurred by the debt collection became higher than the income from the fees.

As of the beginning of 2015, unrefunded fees will be entered as income into the State Television and Radio Fund.
