Distribution of taxes
Every autumn, the City of Stockholm decides how the municipal tax should be distributed among a number of areas – for example schools, elderly care, culture, infrastructure, sports and environmental projects.
The budget for 2024 has three operational goals:
- A socially coherent Stockholm with a strong and equal welfare system.
- A green and fossil free city – leading the way with a fair climate transition.
- A city with a solid and sustainable economy, where education, jobs, and housing is available for all.
