You can view and change your tax deduction card. You cannot enter a certain percentage yourself, as this is decided based on the figures in your tax deduction card. 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 65,000 or less, you may be entitled to an exemption card.
