    Swedish government forces dead people to pay TV tax – regardless whether they owned

    Swedish government forces dead people to pay TV tax – regardless whether they owned a TV or not

    By Emma R. 16 November 2018

    Duda Vasilii /

    The Swedish Parliament recently voted through a new law that will abolish the TV license fee from 1 January 2019.

    Instead, the already heavily taxed Swedes will be forced to pay a compulsory tax to finance the public service. This, regardless of whether they are watching, or even own a TV.

    The tax will be higher than the licence fee. The previous fee was paid per household – now everyone over 18 in the household will pay even if there is only one, or no, TV.

    This means that a family with two adults and two children over 18 living at home will be forced to pay approximately €530 per year. The same applies to pensioners in retirement homes where they share a TV – each pensioner will have to pay separately.
    It has also been decided that dead people shall pay the TV tax – people who die will be forced to pay the new tax the rest of the year through their relatives. The law has been severely criticized – by one party.

    Only the Sweden Democrats criticize the proposal and would like to postpone the introduction of the tax until after it has been investigated how to “strengthen the objectivity and impartiality of the public service system”.

    I am forced to pay a "Sports Tax" and we do not watch sports.

    Cable TV costs are outrages!
