If you are liable for Swedish income tax, you are expected to pay the tax which is stated in your income declaration.
Everyone who has to pay any form of tax to the Swedish Tax Agency is assigned a personal tax account. The tax account summarizes your tax payments, your preliminary tax as shown by income statements and your final tax as shown by your final tax statement.
You can make payment to your tax account at any time, for example when you want to make a payment to cover future taxes, or to avoid interest expenses. A payment cannot be reserved for a specific tax or charge as it is set off against the total deficit on the tax account.
You can make payment to your tax account by paying through your bank over the Internet. To ensure that the payment goes straight into your tax account your personal identity number or organisation registration number and reference number (OCR) is required.

You can pay up to a maximum of SEK 40,000 per day into your tax account using Swish. You can either log in via “My Pages” (“Mina sidor”) or the tax account e-service “Skattekonto” itself, then follow the instructions.
We cannot accept cheque payments, all payments must be made via deposit into the account of the Swedish Tax Agency.
A payment has to be made and recorded in the Swedish Tax Agency's account no later than on the due date. Therefore, it is not enough to make the payment as late as on the due date.
There are fixed due dates for payments of tax. Generally, the due date for the payment of any preliminary tax is either on the 12th of each month. In January and August the due date is on the 17th.
You always have at least 90 days to pay from the date of decision shown on the final tax statement. The due date is shown in the calculation you receive together with the final tax statement. If you wish to avoid interest expenses you can pay earlier.
