View, edit or submit the tax return
The deadline for submitting the tax return was 30 April.
If you discover errors or receive new or delayed information, you can still change and submit.
When you have opened the tax return, you must:
It's important that you check your tax return.
- 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 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 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 something is missing:
- 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.
- Check which topics are relevant for you.
If you want the tax return on paper, you can print it.
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.

How to make changes in the paper version of the tax return
- If you believe that any pre-completed amounts are wrong, you should correct them by putting a line through the amount and entering the correct amount in the column called "corrected to”.
- You must enter deductions, income, capital/wealth and debts that have not been pre-completed yourself under the item called “Any amounts that have not been pre-completed must be entered here”. You must then state which item the amount belongs to. If you do not know the number of the item, you can get help in Find item.
- Deduction and debt amounts must be entered with a minus sign, while income and capital items must be entered without a sign.
