View, edit or submit the tax return
The deadline for submitting the tax return is 30 April.
What to do
It is important that you check your tax return.
- Check that what you have received in salary and paid in tax are correct. You can compare the amounts stated in the annual statement of incomes, deductions and tax deductions you get from your employer, with the amounts stated in your tax return. You can check what your employer(s) has/have reported.
- Check that what you received in pension or disability benefit is correct. You can get a statement from NAV or anyone you receive a pension or benefit from. You can check what has been reported.
- Check that the amounts for debt and capital are correct. The amounts are based on information from the companies or organisations that hold your debt or capital. You can get a valuation discount on your wealth and assets. If you’re granted a valuation discount, it will be pre-completed in your tax return
In addition, you can
- check whether you are entitled to additional deductions in the deduction guidance. If you are entitled to deductions, this can reduce the basis on which we calculate your tax. In this way, you can pay less in tax. Some deductions will be pre-completed, while others you will have to fill in yourself.
- find out which items apply to you and which topics are relevant to you.
If you want a copy of your tax return, you can print it out.
When you have checked the tax return, you can submit it in two ways:
- If you haven't made any changes to it, you don't have to submit the tax return. No changes = no need to submit it. Tax returns not submitted by 30 April will be considered as having been submitted with the pre-completed information they contained at the time of the deadline.
- If you need to make any changes, the deadline for making them and submitting the tax return is 30 April. You do this in Altinn. You do not need to send us documentation before we request it.
If you operate a sole proprietorship, you must submit the tax return, and it must be done electronically.
On the second to last page of your tax return you'll find a provisional calculation of amounts outstanding, i.e. what we owe you, or tax you have underpaid. If there is no provisional calculation, there may be several reasons why.
When you have submitted your tax return, we will go through all the information. If you have to pay more tax or are entitled to a refund, you will find out in your tax assessment. We will let you know by e-mail/SMS when your tax assessment is ready, so check that your contact details are up-to-date. The first batch of tax settlement notices will be sent out on 27 June. Settlements will then be completed on an ongoing basis through until 12 October.
If you are a wage earner or a pensioner and are submitting the tax return on paper, you will get your tax settlement notice in August at the earliest.
Change of account number
You will get any refund quicker if we have the correct account number. Up until 15 May, you can check and edit your account number.

How to edit the paper version
- If you believe that any pre-completed amounts are wrong, you should correct them by putting a line through the amount and entering the correct amount in the column headed "rettet til" (corrected to).
- You must enter deductions, income, capital and debts which have not been pre-completed under the item “Any amounts that have not been pre-completed must be entered here”. You must then state which item the amount belongs to. If you do not know the number of the item, you can get help from Find item.
- Deduction and debt amounts must be entered with a minus sign, while income and capital items must be entered without a sign.
