View your tax assessment notice
Most people receive the tax assessment notice in June. Some receive it earlier, while others receive it between August and November.
When you’ve submitted your tax return, we need to process it and prepare a tax assessment. You’ll receive a tax assessment notice where you can see how much money you’ll receive (tax refund) or how much you still have to pay (underpaid tax).
When will my tax assessment notice arrive?
Most people receive the tax assessment notice in June. Some get it earlier, while others receive it between August and November.
Spouses receive their tax assessment notice at the same time – after both their tax returns have been processed.
If you’ve not received your tax assessment yet, you must wait until the autumn. We’ll send out tax assessment notices from the end of August. Everyone will receive their tax assessment notice before 1 December.
If you’re due a tax refund, this will be paid when you receive your tax assessment notice.
The tax assessment notice is usually sent out on Wednesdays, but changes happen quickly and therefore we cannot let you know the exact date it will be sent. We do not send out the tax assessment notice on public holidays, during the Easter week or in July and the first half of August.
There may be several reasons for your tax assessment notice to arrive later, for example:
- Your spouse has underpaid tax, has not submitted within the deadline, is self-employed, or has applied for an extension. Spouses receive their tax assessment notice when both their tax returns have been processed.
- You’ve made many changes or added attachments.
- You’ve been picked for a random check.
- You have not included all the required information in your tax return.
- You’ve received back payment from Nav or other pension companies.
There may be several reasons why you have not yet received your tax refund, for example:
- The tax assessment is not yet completed. We’ll let you know when your tax assessment is ready. The tax refund will be paid once you receive your tax assessment notice.
- You owe money to the state/municipality. Any tax refund you have in credit can be used to cover what you owe.
- The money has been paid to another account than you expected, or it’s been sent by payment card. You can log in and check how we pay you.
- You do not get a tax refund this year. The preliminary tax calculation shown in your tax return is not final and may be changed. After you’ve received your tax assessment notice, you can log in and check whether you have to pay overpaid tax or get a tax refund. You will not receive any money if you do not have overpaid tax.
When you know the result
When you’ve received your tax assessment notice, you know if you get a refund, have to pay more or got it just right.
