Uneven Taxation for Online Alcohol

Published torsdag 9 augusti 2007 kl 12.40
Alcohol seized by Swedish Customs ordered on the Internet

The Swedish Tax Authorities have said that a media report that only some purchasers of alcohol over the Internet here would be taxed was based on a misunderstanding.

Swedes who have been buying alcohol from abroad online have to pay a tax on their purchases, but Swedish Radio News reported Thursday morning that only a few thousand out of all the shoppers will be taxed, and they will be chosen at random.

The Swedish Tax Agency has identified 7000 Swedes who have bought alcohol over the Internet, with help from Spanish and German authorities. Reportedly only 33 online buyers have offficially reported their alcohol purchases to the agency.

Following the Swedish Radio News report, Jan Erik Beckman of the Tax Agency says the appearance of random enforcement was a misunderstanding, and that all 7000 online purchasers will be taxed.
