We need to understand the value of your assets, including any real property and vehicles you may own, your investments and your savings.

Step 6 - Information about Tax residency - Private individuals

Danish banks are required to identify, register and report to the Danish Tax Authority whether their customers are tax residents in countries other than Denmark. A person is generally tax resident in the country in which he or she lives or spends more than 183 days over any 12-month period. If you are an American citizen or you are born in the US, you are always considered tax resident in the US. A customer can therefore be tax resident in more countries at the same time. The information is collected for tax reporting purposes.

Tax residency in Denmark
US citizenship/tax residency

Do you have US citizenship or are you tax resident in the US for other reasons (for example, because you were born in the US or hold a US work permit (Green Card))?
