E-tax (in Danish 'TastSelv') is our online self-service system. E-tax gives you access to seeing and changing your preliminary income assessment and your tax assessment notice and to paying your outstanding tax.

Everybody who pays tax in Denmark can use E-tax - even from abroad.

You log on to E-tax with NemID. Please note that you cannot get NemID until you are 15 years old. Children under 15 can use an E-tax password to log on.

You can choose to receive a text message or an email notification when your tax assessment notice or preliminary income assessment is ready.

Please note that E-tax is in Danish. 

Log on to E-tax using NemID

NemID is a common secure login, which you can use to log on to all public Danish websites, your online banking and other private websites.

All Danish citizens over the age of 15 can get a NemID, as can people with a Danish residency or non-Danish students in Denmark.

At nemid.nu, you can order NemID and read more about how to use it.

You can use your NemID directly from your smartphone or tablet without a code card if you have the NemID app. This is free and can be downloaded from your App Store or Google Play.

An E-tax password is an alternative to NemID, which can only be used to log on to E-tax for individuals. From 31 December 2021, only children under 15 will be able to use an E-tax password to log on to E-tax for individuals. So it is important to have NemID before then to ensure you continue to have access to E-tax.

You will get a password straight away in a text message or an email if you have entered your mobile number or your email address in E-tax under Ret kontaktoplysninger (Correct your contact details). Otherwise you will get a letter with a pin code in the post within 8-14 days.

Order an E-tax password

If you enter your phone number or email address in E-tax under Ret kontaktoplysninger (Correct contact details), you will get a text or an email notification when your tax assessment notice or preliminary income assessment is ready.

When you receive a notification, you log on to E-tax and select Kontakt (Contact). 

Log off (top right) and close all browser windows when you have finished using E-tax. Otherwise other persons using the computer may be able to access your information.
