Your preliminary income assessment is kind of your current income and tax budget for the present year. It tells you about your expected income, tax deductions and allowances and the tax rate used by your employer to withhold tax.

Your preliminary income assessment is available each year in November, and it shows our estimate of your tax for the coming year. If your financial situation changes, you should change your assessment in order to pay the right amount of tax throughout the year.

When you make changes to your preliminary income assessment you also make changes to your tax card which is automatically sent to whoever pays your salary, student grant or pension.

You can see and change your preliminary income assessment in E-tax (TastSelv).

If you want to see your actual earnings, your deductions and allowances and how much you paid in tax last year, you need to check your tax assessment notice.
