When your tax assessment is ready, you’ll see if you’re getting a tax refund or if you have to pay more tax.
When will my tax assessment notice arrive?
This year, nearly all wage earners and pensioners will get their tax assessment during the period 26 March - 22 June. After this, we’ll continue sending out tax assessment notices from 12 August to 21 October.
We’ll let you know when your tax assessment is ready. Online users will receive notifications via e-mail or text message when their tax assessments are available.
Unfortunately, we cannot give you a specific date for when you’ll receive your notice. We cannot provide this information even if you go to a tax office, call us or use our chat
I have not received my tax assessment notice
There might be several reasons why you’ve not yet received your tax assessment notice. For example:
- 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, you must generally change your tax return and re-submit it.
Tax refunds – you receive money
If you’re due a refund, this will be paid to you within 3 weeks of the date stated in the top right corner of your tax assessment notice.
Underpaid tax – you owe money
You must pay the money you owe within 3 weeks of receiving your tax assessment. However, if you get your tax assessment in June, your deadline is 20 August.
If you pay by 31 May, you do not have to pay interest on the money you owe.
If you’ve opted to include grants 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 grant scheme.
Previous years’ tax assessments
You can find your tax assessments from previous years in your Altinn inbox.
Tax assessment notices of deceased persons
We send out the tax assessment notice in paper format if there is a c/o address registered for the deceased person. The tax assessment notice will not be available in Altinn. If you still want us to send the deceased person's tax assessment notice, the National Population Register must be notified of the surviving spouse or heirs’ postal address and report a grant of proxy with information on any signed authorization to the National Register.
