You should change your preliminary income assessment if you stop working full time and start receiving a state educational grant or production school grant. See what steps you need to take below.  

 

  1. Log on to skat.dk/tastselv with your NemID.
  2. Select Forskudsopgørelsen 2020 (Preliminary income assessment 2020).
  3. 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 find the field. You enter the amount you expect to earn in total this year - before tax.
    • If the correct amount is already shown in the field - that is, the amount you expect to earn as salary this year - you do not have to do anything further.
    • If the amount is incorrect or not shown, you enter the amount you expect to earn as salary this year. See example. Click on the question mark by the field for more information. 
  4. 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.
  5. You now return to the Preliminary income assessment again. Select Beregn (Calculate) at the bottom of the page and check that your numbers are correct.
  6. Select Godkend (Accept).

Thank you. If you have previously filled out field 417 regarding deduction for transport between home and work, you should remember to change it. If this is not the case, you can log off now. 

 


 

How to change your deduction for transport between home and work
