How do I pay tax in the US?


 

Here are some basics:

  • Tax withholding system as in Denmark (no preliminary tax return)
  • Social security number is crucial (not to be compared with a CPR-no.)
  • State tax and federal tax = two tax returns (if state tax…)
  • No eTax system (“TastSelv” system) in the US – huge forms
  • Filing date is earlier than in Denmark (15 April for individuals – DK is 1 July – both countries’ tax year is the calendar year).
