Paying the congestion tax
The taxable passages that a vehicle makes in and out of Stockholm and Gothenburg during a month are summed up to a tax decision that is paid in arrears.
If the vehicle is registered abroad, the Swedish Transport Agency has entrusted a notification partner to identify the owner of the vehicle, send out invoices to and obtain payments from the owner of the vehicle via EPASS24.
You can pay congestion tax in one of the following ways:
Direct debit ("autogiro")
You can sign up for direct debit ("autogiro" in Swedish) in your online bank. This will allow the congestion tax to be debited from your bank account automatically. You can combine direct debit with the electronic invoice.
Electronic invoice ("e-faktura")
If you use an online bank (Internet bank) via your Swedish bank, you can sign up for electronic invoice ("e-faktura" in Swedish) for congestion tax ("trängselskatt" in Swedish). We will then send you the invoice directly to your online bank instead of sending it by post.
At the end of each month, the Swedish Transport Agency sends out a payment slip to owners of vehicles registered in Sweden.
