The state's real estate tax disappeared in 2008 and was replaced by a municipal fee in the same place. The majority of house owners is actually on the roof, and will not, therefore, to get the height of the levy after the assessed tax values increased.
But, however, they run the risk of low-value homes, often in the glesbygdskommuner, to get the height of the tax. They are located under the roof and, therefore, there is a scope for increasing this contribution.
How many people this happens to, it is not possible to say, in the day when villa owners will receive the proposals from the Tax authorities in the autumn of this year.

economists " , Robert Boije poorly on the municipal levy. Nevertheless, he does not want to re-state taxation.
"I think It's politically dead in the water," he said.
I just nedringd. The people were so angry,
the Boije is today the chief economist at the state-SBAB, however, in 1998, he was a non-political civil servant at the ministry of finance. He was trying to find a suggestion on the limitations of the old land tax, which had become an increasingly contested area.
the Tax is perceived as unpredictable and unfair, and the neighboring home owners are allowed to Robert Boije and understand it.
" I just nedringd. The people were so angry, " he recalls.
the limitations of a different nature, but sometimes they are, well, odd. Such was shopping in the attractive coastal areas should be protected from the effects of a well-off city dwellers bought expensive vacation homes.
the Boije and his team was on all fours on the floor, the floor of which was covered with maps from national land survey of sweden, and identified the areas that might have restrictions.
It was hopeless: the council of state, solid to the proposal and the government withdrew it.
Robert Boije good laugh when the ROTOR is reminiscent of him.
"It wasn't my finest hour as an economist and a civil servant at the finance ministry," he said.
The experience of doing well, that he would rather see a reform of the current system and to reinstate the state property tax.
That's strange, in the interest of efficiency, but in addition, it is objectionable from the fördelningssynpunkt
a set of classes introduces the regional level, where the maximum of the charge, the ceiling varies according to the class. A house with a high rateable value, in the expensive areas have higher ceilings than those with lower ones.
"The people who live in Stockholm are going to have an average a higher ceiling than those in the rural areas," says Boije.
" And if you want to make it more complicated, so you can have more classes. Then, the assessed value of each municipality to decide on what class you are in, added he.
" oh, Yes, but the question is, how high you set the ceiling. Let's say that you are raising the ceiling in each class of 500 dollars, with a maximum ceiling of 15,000.

would like to re-state the property tax is the professor Peter Englund, who is working on a proposal for the SNS. He was judge of the municipal real estate fee, which he sees as regressive, the opposite of progressive where the tax rate increases with income.
" It is, of course, there are the high-income earners who own large, expensive houses and big expensive houses are located in the regions, where income levels are higher. This is clearly regressive, " says Englund, specifically.
"It's strange, in the interest of efficiency, but in addition, it is objectionable from the fördelningssynpunkt," he adds.
as the DN in the past talked about, similar to the tax on the investeringssparkontona (ISA). This would result in a tax of 0.45 percent of the assessed value, but without a roof.
"That would lower the tax to a low tax-assessed value, as of the day of, however, is higher for those who have a high rateable value," says Benjamin.
"And it would have the advantage of being more predictable," he adds.
What has happened in the past, it was politically impossible become possible
mr Peter Englund does not give much for the argument that it would be politically impossible to reinstate a state property tax. He believes that it is the economists ' task is to present evidence-based arguments for policy-makers.
"And what has happened in the past, it was politically impossible has become possible," he adds.
it stresses that the tax has to be seen to be reasonable and legitimate in the eyes of the one who is going to pay it.
" Many of the skilled economists do not seem to see the political ramifications. Ekonomens in response to the person who does not have the money to pay the tax is, of course, is to mortgage the house, but getting a politician to say it in the parliament, – no, no, it doesn't work!
" the solution has to work in practice, and they need to be perceived as legitimate. What did you learn as a civil servant in the ministry of finance!
