After your tax return has been submitted, the Tax Administration will process it. When your tax return has been processed, you’ll receive a tax assessment notice.

Unfortunately, we're unable to give you a specific date on which you will receive your assessment notice, even if you contact us.

If you've overpaid tax, the money will be transferred to your account shortly after you’ve received your tax assessment notice. 

If you find an error in your tax assessment, in most cases you will have to change and re-submit your tax return.

Check whether you can make changes yourself or whether you have to submit an appeal.
