Publication of taxes in Norway
Every year the Norwegian tax authority makes the taxation records open to the public, online, for a limited length of time. You can search the name - and see how much you paid in taxes, how big your fortune is and how much you earned the last year.
When Märtha Louise began to earn money, her tax records were only made available to the public at the Oslo tax office. (Same for Ari Behn after he married her).
Princess Astrid's and Princess Ragnhild's records, on the other hand, are available to the public online. I really don't know why there is a difference between them in this.
Of course, the newspapers go to the tax office and get the numbers anyway, so they publish them (online) in their newspapers: http://www.vg.no/pub/vgart.hbs?artid=174265 and they do seem to focus on Märtha and Ari's taxes instead of Ragnhild and Astrid's... so maybe it is a "what is newsworthy"-kind of thing? Or maybe the fact that Märtha and Ari's income/fortune changes greatly from year to year keeps the interest in them alive, while Astrid's fortune is pretty much the same every year and her income is basically the honorary pension from the state and interests?
Just something that made me wonder earlier today. :rofl: I blame the extreme focus the newspapers have today, on who earns what.
The King, Queen, the Crown Prince and Princess don't pay taxes and are therefore not included in this.
Here are some information:
Märtha Louise made 2.266.852 kroner in 2006 and had a fortune of 5,9 millions, she payed 818.000 kroner in tax
Ari Behn made 1.010.000 kroner, and has a fortune of 0 kroner
Princess Astrid has a fortune of 68 millions, 0 in income and payed 450 000 kroner in tax
Johan Martin Ferner also had an income of 0, and a fortune of 8,8 millions
The rest of the Ferners, not all of them are related to the royal family but Im sure you recognise some of them
Princess Ragnhild: income 106 000, fortune 1,6 millions
Erling Sven Lorentzen, income 0, fortune 1,2 millions

why the king and the crown prince doesnt pay taxes? I think that they should pay.
yes, they should be like the british.
the Royal family lives on govermental salary/pension? why should it take back part of it via taxes?
Is Norway a place very expensive for living? How pay the people of taxes? For example, a journalist or a teacher?
But basically yes, taxes are paid on fortune, when said fortune exceeds a certain sum. :ermm:
