There are rules determining which information you can request about yourself and others. Here you can find out about which information is public and which is confidential, and the process for requesting information.
You can always request information about yourself from the Swedish Tax Agency. You can also request certain information about others.
If you wish to access public information through the Swedish Tax Agency, the easiest way to do so is to call our information line on 0771-567 567 (or +46 8 564 851 60 from outside Sweden).
You can also email us. Bear in mind that any email you send us will become an official document that the general public and mass media may have the right to read if they request access to it.
You can also access information by visiting one of our service centres.
Information from the population register is normally public. However, this information may be confidential in certain cases. This applies, for example, to sensitive information relating to matters such as adoption and gender correction.
Most information relating to taxation is normally confidential. However, some is public, including the following:
You can email the Swedish Tax Agency about matters relating to you. If you email personal data to us, we will protect your privacy when processing it.
Any emails you send to the Swedish Tax Agency will become official documents. This means the general public and mass media may have the right to read the content if they request access to it.
Sometimes you will receive a response to your email by post. This is because, by law, certain types of information may not be sent electronically. These regulations are designed to protect your privacy.
When an email is received by one of our offices, we register it there – just as we do with postal mail. If necessary, we then forward the email to the relevant unit or person.
If your email contains personal data, we usually use it only to answer your questions. If your email is about an ongoing case, we may use the personal data in administering the case.
