Tax declaration

Question

Hi,
Any assistance with completing a tax declaration would be welcome. I worked in Belgium for the first 3 months of the year and took up a job in Sweden. I commute every week (Brussels - Stockholm) as my family is still staying in Brussels. For my declaration, I have 2 salaries in 2019 (Belgium Q1 in euros and Sweden Q2 to Q4 kronas). I already get taxed in Sweden. My questions is, do I need to convert my krona earnings into euros and combine them with my Belgium Q1 euro salary in order to complete my declaration?
Thanks

Yes, you'll need to convert your kroner earnings to Euro's. You should use this site:
https://www.ecb.europa.eu/stats/policy_and_exchange_rates/euro_reference...
for reference rates vs the Euro that the tax authorities will accept without question (as opposed to rates you may have actually got in the bank when you changed your money)

You will also declare how much tax has already been witheld by the Swedish authorities to avoid being taxed twice.

My very strong suggestion to you would be to contact your local tax office to get guida
