View, edit or submit the tax return
The deadline for submitting the tax return is 30 April every year. If you discover errors or receive new or delayed information, you can still change and submit the tax return.
When you have opened the tax return, you must:
It's important that you check your tax return.
- Check salary and paid tax
Check that what you have received in salary and paid in tax are correct. You can cross-check the amounts in the annual statement of incomes, deductions and tax deductions you receive from you employer, with the amounts in the tax return. You can check what your employer(s) have reported.
- Check pensions or disability benefit
Check that what you receive in pension or disability benefit is correct. You will receive a summary from NAV, or anyone else you receive a pension or benefits from. You can check what has been reported.
- Check debts and capital/wealth
Check that the amounts for debt and capital/wealth are correct. We get these figures from the companies or organisations you have debt or capital/wealth with. You can get a valuation discount when assessing your wealth. If granted, this discount will be pre-completed in your tax return.
You can also check if you are entitled to make additional deductions using our deduction wizard. If you are entitled to deductions, they can reduce the basis on which we calculate your tax. Then you can pay less tax. Some deductions will be pre-completed, while others you must fill in yourself.
To get help with what to check, use our guide to the topics in the tax return: Help to get the taxes right.
If any information is incorrect or missing from the tax return you have received, you must make the necessary changes. For example, you may have bought a house or a car, sold shares or got married.
You can make changes in the tax return after you have submitted. Remember to re-submit the tax return after you making the changes.
For help on what to change and why, visit our overview of topics and deductions in the tax return.
The deadline for making corrections and submitting the tax return is 30 April.
You can change and submit as many times as you need, even after the deadline has passed. You do not need to send us documentation before we ask for it.
Tax returns not submitted by 30 April will be considered as having been submitted with the pre-completed information as stated when the deadline expired.
If you own a sole proprietorship, you have to submit a tax return regardless, and you have to submit it electronically.
After you’ve submitted
In the tax return, you'll find a provisional tax calculation.
This may be changed after you’ve submitted. When you’ve submitted your tax return, we’ll go through all the information.
You’ll see whether you have to pay more tax or if you're entitled to a refund in your tax assessment.
Other tax returns
From the 2021 income year, the tax return on paper will be in the new format. It looks like the new digital tax return on skatteetaten.no and contains topics instead of items.
If you receive the tax return on paper, you must check that everything is correct, make the necessary changes and submit it. You can also log in and submit it electronically, even if you received yours on paper.
You do not have to submit the tax return if there are no changes to be made.

When a person dies, their address is automatically deleted from the National Population Register. No tax return will therefore be sent out unless a contact person has been registered for the deceased in the National Population Register. If you want us to send the deceased person's tax assessment notice, you must contact us.
