Do you live in another Nordic country and receive social security benefits from Denmark?
This applies to you who live in another Nordic country and receive social security benefits from Denmark. The information only applies to tax on the Danish social security benefits. If you receive a pension from Denmark, see pension.
Examples of social security benefits paid from Denmark:
Unemployment benefits, parental benefits, sick pay.
Taxation in Denmark
You will have to pay tax on the social security benefits in Denmark. This is regardless of who is the pay out of the amount.
If you only receive social security benefits from Denmark, your final statement should be ready in Tastselv in March the following year. If you do not have access to Tastselv you will receive your final statement by post. If you have not received your final statement no later than the May 1, please contact Skattestyrelsen. You can find your TastSelv on skat.dk
Taxation in the country of residence
The social security benefits may also be liable to tax in your country of residence. If you are taxed both in Denmark and in the country where you are resident, it is your country of residence that must ensure that the social security benefits are not subject to double taxation.
