Check your tax assessment

Once we have processed your tax return, you will receive a tax assessment notice. The processing time for this varies. You’ll be notified by email or text message when your tax assessment notice is ready.

The tax assessment notice states how much money you’ll be refunded, or how much you’ll have to pay (underpaid tax).

Most wage earners and pensioners will receive their tax assessment notice in April, May and June every year, but there can be many reasons why you’ll receive your tax assessment notice later than this.

If you do not receive your tax assessment by 29 June, you’ll receive it at the earliest on 17 August. Tax assessment notices will then be issued until everyone has received one by the end of November.

Reduced waiting time for your tax assessment notice
Previously, no one received their tax assessment notice before June. In the last few years, the Tax Administration have processed tax assessments much earlier, and most will receive their tax assessment notice as early as March, April and May.

Important information

We’ll notify you by email or text message when your tax assessment notice is ready.

Unfortunately, we cannot give you a specific date for when you’ll receive your tax assessment notice, even if you visit a tax office or call us. 

There can be several reasons why you’ve not yet received your tax assessment notice.

This could, for example, be:

  • you’ve been picked for a random check
  • you’ve submitted the tax return on paper
  • your spouse will receive his/her tax assessment notice late
  • you’ll have to pay underpaid tax (tax assessment notices with refund tax are issued earlier)

Når du vet hvordan det gikk

Når du har sjekket skatteoppgjøret ditt, vet du om du får igjen penger, må betale penger eller om det gikk akkurat i null.

If you’ve overpaid tax, the money will be transferred to your account shortly after you’ve received your tax assessment notice.

If you have underpaid tax, it means that you did not pay enough tax last year and that you have to pay this money now.

You’ll receive an invoice with payment information and a deadline. You can also pay early to avoid interest.

As a general rule, if you find an error in your tax assessment notice, you must change your tax return and re-submit it.
