Information about individuals’ income from employment and business activities will no longer be public, according to a new assessment by the Swedish Tax Agency Skatteverket.
You can request public information about yourself and others from the Swedish Tax Agency, such as civil registration data or tax decisions. Some information, however, is confidential.
As part of a development project, the Swedish Tax Agency has decided that income from employment and business activities will no longer be considered public information, but confidential. This will apply from the income year 2023.
– The new assessment strengthens the integrity of the individual. With regard to confidentiality in the tax area and the protection of the individual’s personal and financial circumstances, we will of course not include more information than we need in the decisions, as they are generally public, says Henrik Sandström, legal expert at the Swedish Tax Agency, in a press release.
If you want or need to share your information, you can collect the documents from the agency yourself.
Income data before 2023 will continue to be public.
