I have decided to assign a year tag to new notes e.g 2016. Is it possible to setup en so that this tag is automatically assigned to new notes? I have taken a look at preferences, but nothing I could see.

Evernote does not have a "default tag"

As a workaround, you could apply the tag afterwards to a group of notes

Not sure the point of assigning tag 2016
New notes are automatically assigned creation date, for example  20160801
- You can search on this field,  
   for example     search     created:20160101 -created:20170101
- You can add this search to your shortcuts and call it     2016
see  Evernote Search Grammar   for further details on search terms

Check out IFTTT. It's free and does what you want. Just create a recipe 'if note is created' then 'insert date'.

in ifttt, I see the "if note is created" part, but I don't see the "insert date" action

Sorry for the late reply. I think IFTTT has changed.

There is an ingredient "{{check time}}". That does the trick, however, you'll get something like "November 18, 2016 at 12:51 AM". There is also "created date"

You could simply use "2016" in the "Tag" field. You'd have to change that in 2017 though.
