By the way, how is the crime? (murders, break-ins, stolen cars, roberries, etc?)
Also which cities are bad for it and which are not so, or are good as far as lack of it goes?

Is it bad to live outside of the cities (of course personal preference plays a huge part), but do you get high speed internet, tv, etc out there?

i'm just about a post *****, but ..

i'm trying to get something straight ..
is this information correct?

local tax at a rate of 26-35 percent (depending on the municipality),
national income tax of 20 percent on annual taxable earnings of between SEK 252,000 and 390,400 and 25 percent for income above SEK 390,400 (year 2001).

that's for monthly/yearly salary ..

what happens if you make lses than SEK 252,000

also, when you buy a house, do you pay any taxes? I'm thinking its 30% (from the above website), but I'm not too sure.

edit: actually reading the site its 30% that you pay if you sell a house, not buy .. right?

Thanks again

Wow, I just found out something interesting after doing some calculations.

When earning around CAD$60,000, the difference of tax you pay each year (income tax, and other deductions) in Canada is miniscule compared to the difference you pay in Sweden .. when I say miniscule, I mean its around 2.5%. At $70,000 and over that widens to 7.5% extra Sweden pays.

That's ... not much difference (7.5% is a little more, but 2.5% is NOTHING compared to the extra things you guys seem to get that Canada doesn't)
