Personal income Tax - and a High Standard of Living

In brief - personal income taxes in Denmark are among the highest in the world. To enjoy the high standard of living - plus one of the world’s most well functioning welfare systems - the Danes pay 50-60% tax of their total income. Married couples are taxed separately. The Danish taxation system is progressive and very complicated to administrate - even by the Danes - and also by the Danish “Skat” authorities. (Danish - IRS - Internal Revenue Service) Danish income tax consists of national tax - municipal tax - a high healthcare contribution - and tax to the Evangelical Lutheran State Church of Denmark. Due to a "tax ceiling" you will never pay more than 60% of your total income on income tax in Denmark -
but the Danes have nevertheless many other tax burdens to pay - as they still have to pay the 25% VAT on all goods - plus contribute with a lot of other government fees and taxes as a supplement to the Danish treasury account.
