Half of Sweden wants digital tax returns
More than 5.7 million Swedes receive their tax return in Kivra. It’s a no-brainer, really – no paper stacks to keep track of, just an app and 24/7 access.
Why do so many prefer it digitally?
Up to a month sooner
Skip unnecessary waiting! You’ll receive the tax return sometime between March 6-10, which is earlier than by paper mail.
Always close at hand
Anywhere, anytime. Perfect for flexible lifestyles.
Kind on the environment
Is turning trees into declaration forms really necessary? You (and millions of others) decide! Luckily, we have a really good option.
When will you receive the tax return?
That obviously depends on whether you receive it digitally or on paper. If you get Kivra before March 5, you’ll get it between March 6-10. In comparison, the paper version will arrive between March 15 and April 15. That also applies to anyone who has switched off mail from authorities or the Swedish Tax Agency in the Kivra app. You can easily switch those back on in the app.
When can you get your tax refund?
Pretty soon, actually. To receive it as soon as possible, i.e. April 5-6, you need to approve your declaration without any changes or additions by March 30 at the latest. Make sure you have a registered bank account at the Tax Agency or in the app so the money has somewhere to go.
How to fill your tax returns at Skatteverket
Wait for your tax return
From March 14, you can approve and submit your declaration at the earliest.
Check and approve
Time to get started! Go through the documents and check that all the information is correct. When you’re ready you can easily approve the declaration in the Swedish Tax Agency's e-service or app. Remember you’ll need a Mobile BankID to do this.
Make additions and changes
Did you sell your home or shares? Or are you a business owner? Then you may need to make additions and changes to the declaration. Read more about how it works at the Skatteverket
Receive your final tax notice
When you’ve submitted your return, the Tax Agency will check your information and calculates your final tax. You’ll get all required information needed in your final tax statement.
Get a refund or pay back taxes
Will you get a tax refund? If you have registered your bank account with the Swedish Tax Agency, it will be paid to you directly. If you need to pay additional taxes, you do so to the Swedish Tax Agency's bankgiro or with Swish.
What about standard reductions?
Good question. If you know the answer, this is not for you. But if you think the declaration might be a bit complicated in terms of language, we have translated some concepts into sentences you can understand. Seven words, one landing page, a small but quite clear declaration phrasebook.
