Car ownership in Denmark - avoid car taxes?

by Gaffur Ak

Hi,

Would you have any idea about avoiding taxes? That is to say, I live in Copenhagen but register my residence in Malmø, in order to take advantage of that sweet 25% car acquisition tax of Sweden. Any ideas on that? Any troubles I might face? (e.g would the danish police ask me to show them proof whether i cross the øresund bridge everyday to commute to work?)

Response: Yeah I got a response to that. You are an idiot if you think you will get away with this. Your neighbors are sure to report you, people who see your car on the street everyday with Swedish license plates will report you and you will end up with one helluva FINE! I personally can not wait til you get caught. I pay my car taxes, my neighbor pays their car taxes, why should you get the benefit of cheating a system that everyone else honors.

Also, can not believe you would ask me how to help you get away or give you tips to avoid getting caught - that takes a lot of hutzpah!

Really dumb to put your name on the post, (plus your ip address is also there - so police can track you down), because now the police/tax authorities have a record of this comment and if they decide to look for you, you can not claim that you didn't know. You have blatantly said that you are CHEATING THE SYSTEM. Here is a clue - if you are going to be a thief, do not tell people about it online. Why not just where a shirt saying that you are a TAX CHEAT and taking advantage of DENMARK and all its citizens. You are stealing from us too!

Man if I was you, I would go get that car registered before this post is seen by SKAT or the POLITI. Maybe someone will forward this to them. hmmmm

P.S. Please do not post here again - we do not wish to associate with criminals and tax cheats.
