If you rent a commuter home, you can claim a deduction for expenses, for example for rent and electricity. Deduction for accommodation expenses is given according to actual costs. If the living expenses exceeds 10 000 NOK annually, you must cover through a bank or by wage deduction in order to be entitled to a tax deduction.
You can also receive deduction for expenses for parking in relation to the commuter home.
Expenses for phone and internet subscription in the commuter home are included in the government rates for food and minor expenses.
