In the year following the death, the parties to the estate must declare the income of the deceased prior to death and any income the estate may have received. The estate must be declared for as long as assets remain that have not been transferred to the heirs. The Swedish Tax Agency (Skatteverket) will send an income tax return form to the estate in early April.
Changing the address for your income tax return form
It is important that you notify any change of address for the estate after the death, as income tax return forms are not forwarded by the Post Office but rather returned to the Swedish Tax Agency (Skatteverket).
You can give notification of a change of address in a letter signed by you and addressed to the tax office closest to the new address.
Under certain circumstances, no income tax return is required
An estate does not need to submit an income tax return if it has only made capital gains for which the Swedish Tax Agency (Skatteverket) has already received a statement of income. Capital gains may, for example, refer to interest, dividends, standardised income, etc.
Declaring the estate using the Swedish Tax Agency’s e-service
You can declare the estate yourself or ask someone to help you using the Swedish Tax Agency’s e-service (Skatteverket). The person who uses the service must first apply to be the income tax representative of the estate, after which they can sign in using their own e-identification.
