If we have asked you to make a payment, it is important that you pay using the methods described. Please see the following examples of various types of payment requests, where to make your payment and how to contact us.

The information stated in your preliminary income assessment is used to calculate your tax for 2018. 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).

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

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 2017

You can pay outstanding tax for 2017 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 the outstanding tax in E-tax (TastSelv). In E-tax, you can pay by Dankort or you can see the payment ID to be used for payment by online banking. Payment should be made by no later than 3 July 2018. This payment option has a low interest rate as you avoid an interest surcharge.
  • 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 3 July 2018, 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 19,200) will be included in your preliminary income tax for 2019. Amounts in excess of DKK 19,200 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.

Further information is available in Payment of tax for 2017 (outstanding tax)

If you receive a new tax assessment notice for 2016 or previous years, your outstanding tax will be charged in instalments. Such instalments are only payable via your bank or via online banking.
