Declaring tax in Denmark
Submitting a Danish declaration online
If you pay tax in Denmark, you must also declare tax there. In the beginning of March, you will find your tax assessment notice (årsopgørelse) in TastSelv on Skattestyrelsen's website. Here you will also find information about what fields you need to fill in. You can find further information on how to fill in your Danish tax declaration at Øresunddirekt when the declaration time approaches.

Do I have to declare my Danish income in Sweden?
If you live in Sweden you must also submit a Swedish tax declaration, even if all of your earnings are in Denmark. Inform the Swedish tax authorities of your Danish income under "övriga upplysningar" (other information) on the declaration form.
If you have Danish income on which you pay tax in Sweden, you can use the conversion rate of DKK 100 = SEK 141,83 (2018: 137,6) This is the Riksbank's average rate for the year. This applies to people such as Danish employees who live in Sweden and have carried out part of their work in Sweden
