1968 incoming Norwegian taxed mail: 27 June 1968 postmarked airmail cover sent with Israeli & Norwegian airmail etiquettes by the Israeli sender, from BERGEN to hospital in TEL AVIV & franked 90 ore - but short paid & marked for tax by the Norwegian post office using the taxe fraction method instituted as of 1 Jan 1966 by the Universal Postal Union's (UPU) Vienna convention, of the sending postal administration indicating the amount owed as twice the deficiency in the numerator and the country's base letter surface postage rate in the denominator - here the cover was deficient 30 ore for the 90 ore rate, and charged 60 ore as the tax.

In Israel this ratio was multiplied by the country's period base letter surface postage rate of 30 agorot, yielding a calculated postage dues tax amount of 20ag, paid on 3 July at TEL AVIV-6 (head post office) using a 0.20L 1965/67 1st Town Emblems Ba #308 stamp; slit open at left.
