Log in to complete your tax return

Get your password (veflykill)

Information regarding your salary, real estate, vehicles, bank accounts, debt and more are pre-filled in. Reviewing the prefilled tax return, adding any additional information is fast and easy. 

Login identification

Electronic identification (Rafræn skilríki)

You can apply for an electronic ID at your Icelandic bank, Auðkenni or at most telephone companies. Just bring your phone and a valid identification, i.e. a passport or a European drivers' licence.

Webkey/password (Veflykill):

An electronic ID is the best option but if you don't have one you can use a password. You get your password at the website www.skattur.is using the link “Sækja veflykil”. You choose whether to have it sent by mail to your registered address in Iceland (Lögheimili) or to your online banking in Iceland (Heimabanki).

Living abroad

Those living abroad may be required to turn in a tax return in Iceland, for example those who received salary or any other type of income from Iceland in the year 2021 and real estate owners

Should a person living abroad not be able to log in with an electronic ID or have an active password, a new one can be sent as soon as the application form has been filled out.
