The information stated in your preliminary income assessment is used to calculate your tax for 2022. Your employer or pension provider, etc. withholds A-tax (tax withheld from income at source) from your income. However, B-tax (tax not withheld from income at source) may also be payable in certain cases. In such cases, instalments will be generated and it is your responsibility to pay these instalments.  

Any B-tax payable will appear in your preliminary income assessment. 

Please log on to E-tax (TastSelv) to check your preliminary income assessment. If you have to pay B-tax, you will find the payment ID by clicking ‘Din B-skat’ (Your B-tax).

You can only pay B-tax via your bank or via online banking. You can set up a standing order with Nets direct debit service (betalingsservice) (link in Danish).

Further information on Your tax 

Further information on B-income (fees)

If you have paid too little tax throughout the year, your tax assessment notice will tell you that you have to pay the outstanding tax.

Please log on to E-tax (TastSelv) to check your tax assessment notice for the relevant year.

You can pay outstanding tax in various ways, depending on the income year to which the outstanding tax relates.

Paying outstanding tax for 2021

You can pay outstanding tax for 2021 in several ways. Your tax assessment notice will describe what applies to you, depending on the amount of outstanding tax and when the tax assessment notice was generated.

  • Payment of all or some of your outstanding tax in E-tax (TastSelv). The deadline for paying by Dankort or payment ID was 1 July 2022. This payment option gives you a low interest rate and you avoid an interest surcharge. When you pay your outstanding tax, it will be registered 2-3 working days after the day you pay. You can see your receipt in E-tax under 'Betaling - Betalingshistorik' (Payment - payment history).
    If you use a payment card, it should be approved for online purchases. Please contact your bank or Nets for further information on approval for online purchases of payment cards.
  • If your tax assessment notice states that you have to pay by instalments, it is important that you make your payment as prescribed. However, until 1 July 2022, you may still make your payment as described above in the first point. 
  • In certain cases, you may even choose not to pay. In such case, your outstanding tax (maximum DKK 22,192) will be included in your preliminary income tax for 2023. Amounts in excess of DKK 22,192 should be paid as described in the two points above. If this option is available to you, it will be stated in your tax assessment notice.
  • You can still pay the included outstanding tax from 2021 fully or partially after 1 July 2022. Please note that the payment should be made as an optional payment by selecting 'Betal skat' (Pay tax) on the tab 2022 in E-tax (TastSelv). You will not avoid an interest surcharge.

Further information is available in Payment of tax for 2021 (outstanding tax)

Paying outstanding tax for 2020 and previous years

Information about your outstanding tax is stated in your tax assessment notice. The payment method depends on the outstanding tax and when your tax assessment notice was generated. Please log on to E-tax (TastSelv) to see your tax assessment notice and what applies to you.

If you receive a new tax assessment notice for 2020 or previous years, your outstanding tax will be charged in instalments. Such instalments are only payable via your bank or via online banking. It is important that you use the correct payment ID when you make the payments. Please find the payment ID and your instalments in E-tax (TastSelv) under ‘Betaling’ (Payment). Remember to select the income year that your outstanding tax relates to (the year of your tax assessment notice).

Payment deadline

The deadline for submitting a notification of a taxable gift and paying gift tax is 1 May in the year after the gift was donated. The gift tax should be paid and received by the Danish Tax Agency on the same day as the gift notification was submitted. If you are late in paying the gift tax or submitting the notification, you will be charged interest. The interest will be charged separately by the Tax Agency.

Please note that if either the donor or the recipient dies before the payment deadline, the deadline will be reduced to 8 weeks after the donor or recipient has passed away. If the donor or recipient dies less than 8 weeks before the gift should have been declared, the payment deadline remains 1 May. Please also note that the point of contact (the administrator) of the estate and the heirs and legatees of the deceased are all responsible for declaring the gift.

The recipient is responsible for paying the gift tax. If the recipient does not do so, the donor is jointly and severally liable.
