  • If you have earned a salary from which tax or labour market contributions has not been deducted, you need to enter the salary in your preliminary income assessment if you would like to start paying your tax.
  • If you have not written your salary in your preliminary income assessment, you need to enter it in your tax assessment notice, which always comes in March.  
  • If you do not pay your taxes, you will not get any holiday pay and you are not insured if you have an accident at work.  
  • If you are under 16, you are allowed to work in private homes without having to pay taxes. It can be jobs like walking a dog, mowing the lawn or babysitting.
