Do you pay tax in more than one country?

tax in more than one country

If you have to pay tax in more than one country, it is necessary to check your Danish tax return extra carefully. The tax return for 2022 will be ready on from 13 March 2023.

There are many possibilities of being affected by the tax rules of several countries:

  • You may have moved from Denmark
  • You may have moved to Denmark
  • You live in Denmark and work abroad
  • You live abroad and have income from Denmark
  • You live in Denmark and have property abroad
  • You live abroad and work in Denmark

For all situations, the tax rules are not an easy book to read, and furthermore the automatically generated tax returns are far from correct – and far from being advantageous for you. You will usually have several choices, where it is not particularly easy to see what is best for you. If you ask Skat, it will rarely be possible to find an employee who can give you a clear and complete answer.

If you have tax-complex circumstances, it will probably also take a long time before the tax return is final. It can mean a lot in kroner and ører that you get the correct tax return quickly.
