This also applies when you receive your Norwegian bank account number.

Check your tax card
You can now check your tax card for 2023. If you do not make any changes, your tax deduction percentage will remain unchanged. You can contact the tax administration if you have questions regarding your tax card.
If you were on the PAYE scheme in 2022 and became a tax resident of Norway (you lived in Norway for 183 days), you will be transferred to the ordinary tax scheme this year.

If you have a temporary ID number (D-number) remember to apply for a new tax card this year. If you don’t apply for a tax card, you will get 50% taxes. Make sure you collect your annual statements for 2022 from UiB, bank, financial institutions, NAV or other applicable sources to check that your tax statement for 2022 is correct. You should receive these statements during the month of January or early February.
