What obligations do I have when paying tax in Norway?

  • You are obliged to provide the tax authorities with information about your income, capital and deductions. 
  • The information must be provided in the tax return, which is a form everyone who is liable to tax in Norway must submit once a year. 
  • If you have not received a tax return form, you must contact the tax office. 
  • You are responsible for the information in the tax return being correct. This also applies to pre-entered information. If you give incorrect or incomplete information additional tax may be imposed.
  • If you are ‘tax resident’ in Norway pursuant to Norwegian domestic rules, but ‘tax resident’ in another country pursuant to a tax treaty, you are nonetheless obliged to submit a fully completed tax return to the Norwegian tax authorities.
