Danish income tax - a short introduction
You pay tax in Denmark if you work there, regardless of whether you live in Denmark or Sweden. Taxation therefore takes place in your country of employment. Danish income tax consists of AM-bidrag, municipal tax, health system contribution (sundhedsbidrag), and state tax.
Deductions - taxation under the cross-border rule
If 75% of your total income (calculated according to special rules) comes from Denmark in one income year, you can decide to be taxed according to the cross-border rule. The way that you are taxed affects which deductions you have the right to declare on your Danish declaration.
