Must I submit a tax return every year?

You will receive the new Norwegian tax return in April in April 2018.


If you are of the opinion that all or part of your pension/disability benefit is tax exempt in Norway, you must submit the tax return and state which income is liable to tax in Norway.

If you do not submit your tax return, it will be deemed to have been submitted with the pre-entered information. A 15 per cent tax will then be calculated on your pension/disability benefit in the tax settlement notice. This also applies when you have had a tax exemption card or a tax deduction card with a lower tax rate than 15 per cent.

The Norwegian Tax Administration may request that you submit documentation stating that you are entitled to tax exemption in Norway.

The deadline for submitting the tax return is 30 April 2018.
