Record File Electronic Tax Returns
Tuesday was the deadline for filing Swedish personal income tax returns.
A record number took advantage of the opportunity to file electronically. Altogether more than 2,600,000 filed online, by telephone or by SMS. That’s half a million more than last year.
But only those who basically accept the information in the tax authorities’ printed summaries of their incomes and assets, reported by employers and banks, can file electronically. Anyone with significant deductions is unable to use the system.
The National Tax Board saves around 2 dollars for every return filed electronically.
