Ordering an exemption card

An exemption card is a tax deduction card that shows that your employer does not need to deduct tax if you earn NOK 65,000 or less.

Important information
  • From the year you turn 13, you’ll automatically receive a tax exemption card if you earned less than the tax exemption card cap the year before.
  • You must be an online user to:
    • order an exemption card
      divide your exemption card amount between employers
    • check if you have an exemption card
    • receive notifications about the tax exemption card
  • You must log in with your own PIN codes.
  • Parents may not order exemption cards on behalf of their children.

When you receive your exemption card, it will also be available to your employer.

From the year you turn 13, you’ll automatically receive an exemption card if you earned less than the tax exemption card cap the year before. We’ll notify you by text message or e-mail when the first employer has retrieved your exemption card. We’ll also notify you if more than one employer tries to retrieve your exemption card. Remember that you’ll then have to divide your exemption card amount between them. In order for you to receive notifications, you must be registered as an online user.

If you want to check if you have an exemption card, you can log in and check.

If you do not have an exemption card and earn less than NOK 65,000, you need to order an exemption card.

You have to log in. Remember to split the exemption card if you have several employers.

We'll notify you when your tax exemption card is ready to use.

If you earn more than NOK 65,000

If you expect to earn more than the tax exemption card cap, you must order a tax deduction card. If you’ve had an exemption card and earned money without tax being deducted, the amount you’ve already earned must be included in the basis for calculating your new tax deduction card. Whether or not you’ve had an exemption card, your total tax will be the same.

Not an online user? 

Then you must first get an online ID. You cannot order an electronic ID by telephone.
