The tax rebate will bring a welcome relief to many people's Swedish bank accounts this year. Here are the key dates when you can expect to receive it.


If you filed your tax declaration online by the end of March, and you didn’t need to make any changes to it, you should get any rebate you’re owned on April 5th or 6th.

If you know that you are owed money back but don’t get it, it could be because you haven’t submitted your bank account details to the Tax Agency (Skatteverket).

You can submit your bank account details via this link.


The final deadline for filing your tax declaration is May 2nd, and you can submit it either online, through text message, by calling or by posting the paper version to Skatteverket. You will then receive your refund by June 9th.

If you haven’t yet received the paper version of your tax declaration form, fear not. It's scheduled to arrive by April 15th, so there’s plenty of time left.

And finally, if you are not one of the lucky ones and you instead have residual tax to pay, you have to pay it by September 12th at the latest, unless it’s less than 100 kronor in which case you can put it off until the tax declaration season of 2024.
