Danish Income Tax
With regard to Income tax and direct tax itself, they include taxes deducting by employer from salary.
The health contribution was 4% of an income exceeding your personal allowance, in 2015. Towards 2019, the health contribution is gradually offset against an increased bottom-bracket tax. From 2019 onwards, there will be no such thing as a health contribution.
Due to the fact, that a particular part of your income tax is paid to the state. Since the state tax rates depend on your income, the Danish Parliament determines the rate of state tax, which is divided into bottom-bracket tax and top-bracket tax,
It was required to pay only top-bracket tax if the personal income exceeded DKK 459,200, in 2015.
Municipality tax is calculated as a percentage of an income but since each municipality determines the tax rate for the people living there, total tax rate depends on the municipality.
Labour market contributions
Labour market contribution totals 8% of an income and it is deducted by an Employer from a pay. This contribution goes towards state expenses for the labour market in order to cover daily benefits in the case of unemployment, supplementary training, sickness or maternity/paternity leave (dagpenge), leave of absence, etc.
Church tax is used for running and maintaining the churches of the municipality and it varies from municipality to municipality, and it is collected along with the other direct taxes.
