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 årsopgørelse or declaration in TastSelv on Skat'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.
E-declaring with TastSelv
You fill in your declaration via SKAT's electronic service TastSelv. With your Danish CPR number and a TastSelv code, which is sent to your home after you have registered with SKAT, you log in to TastSelv, and from there you will have access to your årsopgørelse, as well as your other Danish tax documents. If you forget your code, you can request a new code from SKAT's website. You can also use your NemID to log in.
When you use TastSelv, you can see the result of your tax declaration on the screen. You can also test declaring in different ways (e.g. limited tax liability or border passage rule) to see which is the most profitable for you. You can find more information on the different tax models in our article about deductions for the different taxation modes.
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 127.20 (2016) (the Riksbank's average rate). This applies to people such as Danish employees who live in Sweden and have carried out part of their work in Sweden.
