You can still view, change and submit the tax return. If you have not submitted your tax return yet, you should do so as soon as possible.

For businesses, the deadline for submitting the tax return is 31 May. You can apply for an extended deadline up to the deadline of 31 May. Your application will be approved automatically.

Once you’ve submitted your tax return, we need to process it and prepare a tax assessment.

The majority of taxpayers get their tax assessment notice in June. Some get it earlier, while others receive it between August and November.

The tax assessment notice is usually sent out on Wednesdays, but changes happen quickly and therefore we cannot let you know the exact date it will be sent. We do not send out the tax assessment notice on public holidays or during the Easter week, July or the first half of August.

Unfortunately, we cannot give you a specific date for when you’ll receive your tax assessment notice. We’ll let you know when yours is ready.

If you have underpaid tax, this will usually be because you’ve been deducted too little tax during the income year. Avoid underpaying your tax next year by checking the numbers in your tax deduction card for 2023. 

Check these numbers:

  • Income
  • Interest income
  • Wealth
  • Debt
  • Interest on debt

You must change your tax deduction card if the numbers are incorrect.

If you’re due a tax refund, the amount will be paid after your tax assessment is ready. We’ll let you know when your tax assessment is ready.

You can log in and change or register a bank account number for payments from the Tax Administration.

Information about moving and how to do it – whether you are moving within Norway, to Norway, from Norway, or changing your postal address.

You can view, order and change your tax deduction card.You cannot choose the percentage rate on your tax deduction card. The percentage rate is decided based on the numbers you enter. If you’d like to have more tax deducted than what is specified by your tax deduction card, you can ask your employer to deduct more tax. If you earn NOK 70,000 or less, you may be entitled to an exemption card.
