It’s time to file your tax return. What information are you actually obliged to give?

For many the month of April is synonymous with spring and the first trip out in the boat. However, April is also the month you have to file your tax return! Many of us file our tax return simply by leaving the tax return as it is in Altinn and don’t give it a second thought (filing by silent acceptance). In many situations this works out just fine.

This way, he has demonstrated the importance of knowing the rules of common sense in the mountains. As opposed to Severin Suveren, do not blame “bad luck” when you deliver your tax return after the Easter holidays. Know the rules of good tax sense, and you will not have to depend on luck at all.
