Limited tax liability
If you only stay in Sweden for a limited period of time, or if you have moved from Sweden, or commute to and from Sweden on a daily basis, you are normally considered to have a limited tax liability in Sweden. This means that you are usually taxed only for certain income that has its source in Sweden.
