The Danish tax system is a complicated matter of rules and laws as in most countries. You do not need to be familiar with all these rules and laws, but it is important that you know what you need to do in relation to your tax.

It is your duty to stay informed about, check and approve the figures in your online tax folder to ensure that you do not pay too much or too little tax. At the website of the Danish Customs and Tax Administration you will find important information on how to pay tax in Denmark. Please note that E-tax (the self-service facility – Tast-Selv) is in Danish. You are always welcome to call The Danish Customs and Tax Administration if you need further assistance.
