How do I enter this in my tax return in Altinn?
This item may be pre-completed and is based on what has been reported by VPS/the bank(s), so you should check that everything is correct. The amounts you should crosscheck against will be shown in the annual statement you receive from VPS or the bank(s) in January.
If the amount is incorrect, you must change it in the tax return yourself. You should also contact the financial institution(s) that you traded through to ensure that the annual statement is correct.
You must also use this item to report financial products not included in your tax return. When you choose Add under item 3.3.13, form RF-1159 will be opened. In RF-1159, there’s a dropdown menu where you choose which financial product to report. If the financial product is not on the list, choose the one at the bottom of the list: other securities/financial products.
If the item is not pre-filled, if it’s incomplete or contains the wrong amount, you must enter the product name (and any other relevant information) and the loss. If the item concerns currency loans, you must also enter the name of the bank.
You must also state the reason why you are altering the item.
You do not have to send us any documentation, but you must be able to present documentation if we ask for it.
