Paying and notification of congestion tax
The taxable passages made by a vehicle into or out of Stockholm and Gothenburg during one month will be added together and dispatched to you as a tax decision. The tax is then payed in arrears.
Using our e-services, you can view your tax decisions and your vehicles' preliminary passages. Our e-services also allow you to check if you have paid your taxes (in Swedish only).
Concerning vehicles registered abroad, the Swedish Transport Agency has entrusted a notification partner to identify the vehicle owners, send them invoices and receive payments via EPASS24.
You can pay congestion tax in one of the following ways:
Direct debit ("autogiro")
You can sign up for direct debit (in Swedish: "autogiro") 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 (in Swedish: "internetbank") via your Swedish bank, you can sign up for electronic invoice ("e-faktura" in Swedish) for congestion tax (in Swedish: "trängselskatt"). We will then send 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.
See your tax decisions
Via our e-service for congestion tax and infrastructure charges (in Swedish only) you can keep track of how many tolling stations your vehicle has passed and the invoices you need to pay.
