Public property assessment

These years, property owners in Denmark are receiving new public property assessments based on a new and more reliable assessment system.

As a property owner in Denmark, you pay property value tax on property you own, and you pay land tax on the value of your land. To determine your taxable values, we carry out public property assessments.

Property assessments were suspended in 2011, and the development of a new property assessment system was initiated. New public property assessments are now being issued to the property owners based on the new system. This takes place in stages starting with owner-occupied properties in 2021-2024, followed by assessments for commercial, farm and forest properties from 2025.

The assessment process – step by step

The key steps in the property assessment process are outlined below.

1. Specification of key data

Before we make the assessment of your property, you will receive a specification of the key data on which the assessment will be based (“Deklaration” in Danish). If you find the data to be correct, you do not have to take any action. If you disagree, you can file an objection (“Indsigelse” in Danish).

2. Assessment of your property

When the assessment of your property is available (“Ejendomsvurdering” in Danish), you will be notified. At that time, you will be able to login on to see all the underlying details. You will also find guidance on how to complain, if you disagree (“Klage” in Danish).

3. Possible tax refund

If it turns out that you have been paying taxes based on a property assessment which was too high in the period 2011 to 2020, you may qualify for a tax refund. This refund will be transferred to you automatically. In the opposite case, however, you will not be asked to pay back taxes.

You will always be notified when new information is available at The notification will guide you on how to login to see the details.

You can find more in-depth information on property valuation and taxation in the Danish sections of this website.
