Certificates for income abroad

If you have paid a reduced annual amount due to low income, we will check your income retrospectively. We receive information about income in Sweden directly from the Swedish Tax Agency, but if you have received income abroad, you must submit a final tax assessment from that country yourself. If you have not received any income, you also have to verify this. Further down the page you will find information about the applicable situation in various countries.

Checking income when you pay less

Have you paid a reduced annual amount due to low income? We will check your earnings retrospectively, regardless of whether you have received income in Sweden or abroad. If it turns out that you have paid too little based on your income, you will have to pay this retrospectively. You will also have to pay a surcharge. However, the annual amount may not be higher than it was before you were granted the reduction.

If you have received income abroad, you must submit a copy of your final tax assessment (taxation) or an equivalent certificate verifying the income you have received. If you have not received any income, you also have to verify this.

Income in Sweden

If you have received income in Sweden, we will check this by comparing the details you have provided with the information we receive from the Swedish Tax Agency.

Income abroad

If you have received income abroad, you must submit a certificate verifying that the income you wrote in the application to pay less is correct. We will send you a request when you need to submit a copy of your final tax assessment (taxation) or corresponding certificate from the tax authority in the country where you received income.

Deductions in your tax return

Have you requested deductions in your tax return? CSN can in some cases take these into consideration, but you need to inform us about them. You can do this in Mina sidor, in the service called Lämna intyg om utländsk inkomst. We cannot take general deductions or basic deduction into consideration.

No income

If you have not had any income, then you need to send us a certificate from the tax authority to prove this.
