“EU: Denmark unfairly taxes citizens who work abroad: Denmark may face legal action for violating the EU right to free movement by unfairly making Danes who work outside the country pay more tax than those who work in Denmark
The eurosceptic parties Enhedslisten and Dansk Folkeparti have condemned the EU for interfering with Danish tax law, with DF spokesperson Pia Adelsteen calling the situation “grotesque”.
“Tax law falls under our national jurisdiction, which the EU needs to stay far away from,” Adelsteen told A4.
Lead opposition party Venstre, however, said that the EU is trying to protect the labour market’s right to free movement, not Danish tax policies.
“It is about whether Danish workers are being treated fairly with regards to their income from foreign countries,” Venstre MP Eva Kjer Hansen told A4.
Whilst EU “Welcomes America” for FATCA
Denmark has signed an Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) with USA, which will deliver all of the names of the Danish Citizens and Danish residents who are suspected of also being called “US persons” (extra-territorily taxed by USA, due to improperly-cancelled green cards, birth in USA, or having one US parent). These persons will be penalized by USA for not having paid their dues to the GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD.
In summary, we see Denmark bowing to the US lords of global taxation, whilst fighting adamately against its own EU governing body.
Perhaps, its because the goal of Denmark must be to maximize the amount of taxation that its citizens must submit to somebody, regardless of who they must send it to.
