On Wednesday, Riksdag will make decisions regarding the current radio and television fees that all households pay with television sets per year and the sum of 2,400 SEK per household.
As we have written in the past, It is likely that the current tax will be canceled instead of taxed by someone over the age of 18 who has a taxable income, regardless of whether you have a TV at home or not.
The new tax is proposed to be 1,300 SEK per person per year for all Swedes who earn more than 13,600 € SEK per month. If the offer is passed, the subscription will begin to be deducted for each month starting January 1, 2019.
The reactions of the Swedes I did not expect and although many of them are positive about the proposal, there are also many who are very critical. After publishing articles on the proposal last weekend, readers have commented on Facebook.
The criticism that arises is largely because many think it is unfair to pay for radio and television that they themselves never listen to or expect.
"Fucking politicians, very cheeky, I can take care of them without them, they can not do it without me!" An angry reader writes.
"Soon I am joking in this damned country, hoping that more people love Dex for a change!", Commenting on another.
"Let the Communists pay for their own crazy plans to force us to pay others for a service we do not want …" A third reader writes.
However, many point to this Because they consider it more fair to spend the money on SVT, SR and UR on the tax, as many with TV receivers today do not pay the fee.
"Well, there are no bloody snow coats that can go back to school.", Writes Adam.
"But God what really good in time!" Another writer writes that he is in favor of the proposal.
"I think it's great! Pay TV fees now, even though I do not have a TV, but I'm watching SVT, SVTplay and URplay so it's no more true.TV funded advertising is not something I want!" Write third.
If the new tax becomes a reality, older people with low incomes may benefit from the change in law, while sambus and families with several older children in the household may have to pay more.
