Unlimited tax liability
If you are resident or have a habitual abode in Sweden (or have an essential connection with Sweden, only applicable if you have previously lived here for more than 10 years) you will be regarded as having an unlimited tax liability in Sweden.
This means that you are liable to pay taxes in Sweden on your worldwide income. However, provisions in a tax treaty with another country may result in a restricted right for Sweden to tax a certain income. In the link below you can find general information regarding rules about unlimited tax liability in Sweden.
