Before you order or change your tax deduction card, you should have the following documentation available:
- The payslip you receive from your employer. If this is your first time ordering a tax deduction card, you must specify how much you expect to earn during the year.
- Documentation from NAV or from other pension providers.
- Documents from the bank showing your debts, interest on debts and any wealth.

This information is available on your latest payslip, or you can add up the amounts on all your payslips/pension payments.

- You'll be sent a new tax deduction notice.
The tax deduction notice is a confirmation of your changes, and you can log in to Altinn to find it in your inbox. If you’re not an online user, we’ll send the tax deduction notice to your registered address.

NAV, pension providers and all your employers will retrieve your tax deduction card electronically from the Tax Administration.
If you have a table-based card, you must ensure that the table-based deduction is used only by your main employer, i.e. the one you receive the most income from. You must talk to your employers and let them know whether they’re your main employer or secondary employers.
If you receive several different benefits from NAV during the same period, make sure that the table-based card is used on only one of the benefits. You can optionally choose to change to percentage card. Here you can read more about tax deductions at NAV.
If you have many employers, you should change your tax deduction card to a percentage card.
With a percentage card, all your employers can use the same tax deduction card. If you receive more income than what is specified on your tax deduction card, you must change the card to avoid underpaying tax.

You’re a cross-border commuter if you
- live in a Swedish or Finnish municipality that borders Norway
- work in a municipality in Norway that borders the country where you live
All cross-border commuters receive a tax return from Norway.
As a cross-border commuter, you are not liable to tax in Norway. You are tax liable in the country where you live. However, most cross-border commuters are members of the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme and have to pay contributions.
How to get a tax deduction card
If you’re a cross-border commuter, you must contact the Norwegian Tax Administration and document that you meet the requirements for being classified a cross-border commuter. Once you've done this, the Tax Administration will issue a tax deduction card for 10 percent, which is the national insurance contribution you have to pay.
Your employer retrieves your tax deduction card directly from the Tax Administration. You’ll receive information about your tax deduction card, a tax deduction notice, which will be sent to the address that's registered for you in the National Registry. You do not have to give anything to your employer.
Benefits and remunerations from NAV
The cross-border commuter provisions only apply to employment income. If you receive benefits or remunerations from NAV, or benefits or remunerations from your employer that are refunded by NAV, this income will usually be liable for tax in Norway. In this case, you must contact the Norwegian Tax Administration to get a new tax deduction card.
Exemptions from membership in the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme
By default, the Tax Administration assumes that cross-border commuters who work in Norway are members of the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme. If you work in other countries than Norway, you’re probably a member of an insurance scheme in your country of residence. In that case, you need to contact Forsäkringskassan (Sweden) or Pensionsskyddscentralen/Eläketurvaskeskus (Finland) to have your membership clarified.
If you’re not a member of the Norwegian National Insurance Scheme, you'll receive form A-1 from the national insurance authorities in your home country. The form confirms that you’re covered by the insurance scheme in your home country and documents that you do not have to pay national insurance contributions in Norway. You must present the form to the Norwegian Tax Administration in order to reduce your tax deductions.
