Tax assessment notice/tax account
Everybody who has to pay any form of tax or charge is given a tax account with the Swedish Tax Agency. This account covers virtually all taxes and charges handled by the Swedish Tax Agency.
The tax account shows a summary of your tax payments, your preliminary tax as shown by income statements and your final tax as shown by your final notice of assessment etc. As a private individual, you will usually only have transactions with the tax account once a year, at the time of your final tax assessment. Whether your tax is paid by your employer or by yourself, the tax that is paid regularly during the year should, as far as possible, correspond to your final tax. When your tax return has been checked your final tax is calculated. The result of the calculation is shown on your final notice of assessment.
