Coronavirus - important information from the Tax Administration

View your tax assessment

When your tax return has been processed, you’ll receive a tax assessment notice. You'll receive a notice with information regarding either how much money you’ll get back (tax refund), or how much you’ll have to pay (underpaid tax).

When will my tax assessment notice arrive?

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. The case processing time varies.

This year, some wage earners and pensioners received their tax assessment notice in April and May. Most wage earners and pensioners received their tax assessment notice on 22 June. After this, we’ll send out tax assessment notices from 12 August until 26 November. 

We’ll let you know when your tax assessment is ready. This way, you do not need to worry about it. Online users will receive notifications via e-mail or text message when their tax assessments are available. In the same way as with your tax return, you’ll have to wait to be notified that your tax assessment is ready. 

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

I have not received my tax assessment notice

There might be several reasons why you have not yet received your tax assessment notice. For example:

  • Only those who submit via the new tax return will receive their tax assessment before 22 June
  • You did not submit your tax return before 30 April
  • You submitted your tax return on paper
  • You’re self-employed or married to a self-employed person.
  • You applied for an extended deadline.
  • You’ve been picked for a random check.

There is an error in my tax assessment

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

Tax refunds – you receive money 

If you've overpaid tax, the money will be transferred to your account shortly after you’ve received your tax assessment notice. It may take up to 3 weeks, but many will receive the money the same day.

Underpaid tax – you owe money 

If you receive your tax assessment notice between April - June, your deadline is 20 August. If you receive your tax assessment notice after June, you must pay the money you owe within 3 weeks of receiving your tax assessment notice.

If you pay your underpaid tax by 31 May, you do not have to pay interest on the money you owe.

If you’ve chosen to include subsidy for energy efficiency measures from ENOVA in your tax assessment, this will be offset against last year’s tax assessment. Contact ENOVA if you have any questions about their subsidy scheme.

Tax assessment notices of deceased persons

When a person dies, their address is automatically deleted from the National Population Register. Therefore, no tax return/tax assessment notice will be sent out. In order to receive the deceased person's tax return/tax assessment notice, you must notify us of the postal address of the surviving spouse or heirs.
