Tax deduction on Parental benefit

I am unemployed and receiving the parental benefit from Försäkringskassan. I have no other income. Försäkringskassan had deducted 21% of tax from the total amount. But when I receive the final tax assessment from Skatteverket they have calculated the tax deduction at 30.90% (Helsingborg Kommunal) and asking for additional tax to pay. My question is what is the standard tax rate deduction by Försäkringskassan? and do I always need to pay to Skatteverket later on during final tax assessment?


  • Hello,

    Skatteverket is the institution that decides on how much tax you should pay.

    If you want to avoid a tax refund in the future, you can ask us to deduct more tax. In order to change that contact our Call Center on: 0771 524 524 (press 8 to get to English line).
