Your tax assessment notice is a summary of your tax for the past year, showing your income, deductions and allowances and tax paid.
It is available each year in March and you can see if you are entitled to a refund of overpaid tax or if you have paid too little tax. If you are entitled to a refund, we transfer the refund to your account automatically in most cases.
If you have any changes to your tax assessment notice, you can still make them.
If you want to see your expected income, deductions and allowances and tax for the current year, you have to check your preliminary income assessment.

We obtain most of the information for your tax assessment notice from your bank, your employer or student grant provider, for example. If your tax assessment looks right, you do not need to do anything. However, you have to enter certain deductions and allowances yourself.
Deductions and allowances that you generally need to check and correct:
Deduction for transport between home and work
Deductions for workwear, courses, etc.
You need to file your extended tax return by 2 July 2017. Please note that you need to complete and accept your tax return even if you have nothing to add to the information listed in your service letter.
You should use an extended tax return if you:
- are self-employed
- have foreign income or property
- own rental property that you do not live in personally
- are an artist and are covered by the income equalisation scheme for artists
- work with irregular financial year
- own shares in investment project partnerships (ordinary or limited) (anparter) which are not subject to the rules governing such shares.
Further information on the extended tax return is available here.
