Item 2.1.5

2.1.5 Other income from work

Applies to the income year 2017

Under this item, you enter taxable income from work which is not business income, for example sales income or remuneration for craft and handicraft work in the home or the sale of garden and natural produce.

Does this item concern me?

The item concerns everyone who has received income from work and:

  • is not self-employed,
  • did not perform the work as an employee.

Some forms of income have tax-free amount thresholds. Read more about tax-free odd jobs.

How do I enter this in my tax return?

If you have incurred expenses in connection with the work, e.g. for materials, you should deduct them from the income from employment before you enter the remaining income under the item.

If you have received sales income from garden and natural produce (berries, fungi, fish, etc.), you should enter the income minus NOK 4,000 under the item instead of deducting from your expenses.

If the activity constitutes commercial activity and the income before any deductions (gross) is less than NOK 50,000, operating income and expenses must be entered under item 2.7.6.
