Anyone who earned above 20,431 kronor during 2022 needs to declare their income tax. You will most likely receive a tax declaration by post or in your digital mailbox if you need to declare, but check the Tax Agency’s website if you’re not sure. Below you’ll find some of the key dates to be aware of.

March 5th was the final date to create a so-called digital mailbox (digital brevlåda), which means you receive your declaration digitally rather than as a paper form sent through the post.

Between March 6th and 10th, those with digital mailboxes receive their declarations.

From March 10th, those with a digital e-ID can log in to and see their declaration.

March 14th is the first date for declaring your taxes digitally. If you have a digital e-ID, you can log in to the Tax Agency’s website and fill out your declaration.

The paper declaration will be sent out between March 15th and April 15th.

March 30th is the deadline to submit your declaration online in order to receive a tax refund in April. If no changes needed to be made, people submitting it online by this date will receive any refund between April 5th and 6th.

Even if you receive the paper version, you can still fill it in digitally. The overall deadline for declaration submission is May 2nd. Everyone who met this deadline will receive any tax refund they are entitled to by June 9th.

If you on the other hand had residual tax to pay, you have to pay it by September 12th, unless it’s less than 100 kronor in which case you can put off paying it until the tax declaration season of 2024.

Swedish krona at weakest point against euro since financial crisis

The value of the Swedish krona has dropped steadily against the euro since summer 2021, hitting its weakest value since the beginning of 2009 on Wednesday.

Swedish krona at weakest point against euro since financial crisis

A euro now costs 11:49 kronor, up from around 10 kronor in summer 2021. This means the krona has lost around 15 percent of its value against the euro in just under two years.

Discounting the 2009 valuation – which was a short-term dip – the value of the krona has never been lower than it is now.

At the same time, one dollar costs 10:66 kronor, which has remained relatively stable. In March one dollar cost over 10:70 kronor, and last autumn one dollar would have cost you 11:40 kronor.
