Paper forms and guidance for previous years
You can use the older forms as a guide if you need to change something in previously submitted tax returns.
You can still change and re-submit your tax return for wage earners and pensioners and the tax return for sole proprietorships with forms attached for 2017 and 2018 if you discover errors, or if you've received new or delayed information.
In cases where a self-employed person/general manager has delegated roles or registered an accountant in the Register of Legal Entities, the accountant can retrieve and submit the tax return electronically on behalf of the deceased person. This presupposes that the roles were delegated before the self-employed person died, and that the accountant is both entitled to submit via Altinn and has been delegated the role that provides the accountant with the authority to sign the tax return in Altinn.
In other cases, the tax return may be submitted on paper.
If you need access to the tax return of a self-employed person that died before the deadline for submission, and you do not have access to it in Altinn, you can send an enquiry with a certificate of probate and, if relevant, an authorisation enclosed.
The enquiry, including necessary documentation, must be sent via our contact form or by post to:
Postboks 9200 - Grønland
The deceased self-employed person’s tax return cannot be submitted electronically, but must be sent by post to:
Postboks 430, Alnabru
In some cases, it may take a while before you receive the requested tax return. If you need an extended submission deadline, you can apply for it.
