You should correct your preliminary income assessment if you get a job while you receive a state educational grant or a production school grant.

  1. Log on to skat.dk/tastselv with your NemID.
  2. Select Forskudsopgørelsen 2020 (Preliminary income assessment 2020).
  3. First you enter the amount you expect to earn as salary this year - before tax. Find field 201 - Lønindkomst mv. (Earned income etc.) If the field is not visible go to Oftest tilføjede felter (Frequently added fields) select Nyt job (New job) and fill out the field.
    • If the salary you expect to earn as salary this year is already stated in the field you do not have do to anything further. 
    • If the amount is not stated or if it is incorrect, you need to change it to the salary you expect to earn this year. See example. Click the question mark by the field to get more information about the field.
  4. Next you need to check that your student or production school grant have been included in your preliminary income assessment.
    • If you receive a production school grant, you need to check that the correct amount is stated in the field Kontanthjælp, delpension og orlovs-/fleks-/ledighedsydelse, fleksløntilskud m.m. (216) (Cash benefits, partial pension and leave/flexible/unemployment benefits, etc. (216)). The amount you enter is before tax.
    • If you receive a state educational grant (SU), we are informed about this by the Danish Agency for Institutions and Educational Grants (Styrelsen for Institutioner og Uddannelsesstøtte) and it is automatically included in your preliminary income assessment.
  5. If you have already earned a salary from another employer or received a state educational grant or production school grant during the year, you need to check that the correct amounts are entered in your preliminary income assessment. The amounts should be entered before tax.
    • Go to Oftest tilføjede felter (Frequently added fields) and select Indkomst og betalt skat indtil ændring (Income and tax paid up to date of change).
    • You will find three calculators by the fields. They will give you an overview of your income and paid A-tax that we have registered about you up until now. Click on one of the calculators and check that the numbers are correct. If you did not receive a salary, state educational grant or production grant for one or more months and therefore did not pay A-tax, please enter a "0" in the relevant fields for that month.
    • Click Overfør (Transfer) in the left corner.
  6. Select Beregn (Calculate) at the bottom of the page and check that your numbers are correct.
  7. Select Godkend (Accept).

Thank you - you are done!

Please contact the Danish Tax Agency (Skattestyrelsen) if you have any questions.

 

Facts

  • You need to change your preliminary income assessment if you get a student job while you receive a state educational or production school grant.
  • When you applied for a state educational grant, you chose whether the educational grant administration should use your primary tax card or your secondary tax card. You should use your primary tax card where you earn the most. Normally that is your educational grant.
