  • The home address is the same as your tax residence. You can write the complete address or parts of it. You will get a more accurate calculation the more accurate address you write. You can write "street name", "house number", "post area", "place", "country". For example, "Stredet 15A, 3333 Skattevig, Norge".

  • The commuter home is the address where you live/spend the night when you are at work.

    You can write the complete address or parts of it. You will get a more accurate calculation the more accurate address you write.

    You can write "street name", "house number", "post area", "place", "country". For example, "Stredet 15A, 3333 Skattevig, Norge".

  • The travel distance is, as a general rule, calculated according to the shortest distance by road.

    If you travel by ferry, the ferry trip is included in the travel distance. If you choose to claim a deduction for the ferry ticket, you must subtract the ferry distance by clicking "Change distance" in the box "Distance between home address and commuter home" and change the number of kilometres.

    Example:
    If the distance between the home address and the commuter home is 800 kilometres round trip, and the distance the ferry travels is 50 kilometres round trip, the distance in the box "Distance between home address and commuter home" shall be 750 kilometres.

    (round trip)
  • Here you write the number of trips home from the commuter home during a year (visit trips).

  • Expenses to toll between  home address and commuter home

    In order to get the expenses to toll refunded, you must save at least two hours every day by driving a car compared to using public transport. You shall not include queuing or rush hour.

    The amount you can get approved is based on the cheapest toll passing, which means including possible discounts.


    Expenses to ferry between the home address and the commuter home

    If you choose to claim a deduction for the ferry ticket, you must subtract the ferry distance by clicking "Change distance" in the box "Distance between home address and commuter home" and change the number of kilometres.

    Example:
    If the distance between the home address and the commuter home is 800 kilometres round trip, and the distance the ferry travels is 50 kilometres round trip, the distance in the box "Distance between home address and commuter home" shall be 750 kilometres.

    Keep receipts for tolls and/or ferries paid (subscription or single tickets)"

  • You can choose to claim deduction for actual cost for plane tickets, rather than standard deduction for number of kilometres. If you do, calculate your trips to and from the airport with distance in number of kilometres, and add these numbers to you air plane ticket expences.

    NB! Do you choose to claim deduction for actual cost for plane tickets? Currently, due to an error in the calculator, both ticket expences and standard deduction based on distance in number of kilometres will appear in the result. You need to choose one of them, you cannot claim both.

    Example
    You travel home six times. Three of the trips are by plane and three are by car. The distance is 2000 kilometre round trip and the cost of the three plane trips is 10 000 NOK.

    You can calculate the deduction in two different ways, but you must choose one:
    1. Six trips calculated with distance in number of kilometres:
    2000 kilometres x 6 x 1.50 NOK= 18 000 NOK which you claim as deduction.

    or

    2. Plane tickets (+ distance to/from the airport) and three trips with the distance in the number of kilometres.
    10 000 NOK in expenses for three plan trips + 2 000 kilometres (round trip) x 3 trips x 1.50 NOK= 19 000 NOK.

    Keep the plane tickets in case you must document the expense.
