Those who have not yet checked their tax return should do so before the deadline expires on Saturday. 

Two days before the submission deadline, nine out of ten Norwegians have opened their tax return, and more than 2.3 million have submitted their tax returns. At the same time, 500,000 Norwegians have not even opened their tax return. 

“I encourage everyone who has not opened and checked their tax return to do this within the delivery deadline. It is your responsibility to check that the information is correct,” tax director Nina Schanke Funnemark said on Thursday.

Additional information

Schanke Funnemark points out that people must complete the tax return themselves.

“For many people, there will be information that they have to fill in themselves, such as deductions, information about real estate, sale of a home, or values ​​in other countries. It may be that you have more money to spare than what the tax return shows,” she noted.

“Some have to be patient”

Although most people will receive their tax settlement during June, some will have to be patient and wait until the autumn, the Tax Agency noted.

In June, approximately nine out of ten will get their tax settlement. If you receive residual tax to pay, you will receive an invoice with the first payment deadline in August, Schanke Funnemark added.
