Swedish Tax explained to a child (funny version)

Hits: 0

A father tries to explain the Swedish tax system to his son, in a way that he can understand. Below is the conversation

Father:

  • My son, you should clean your rum (Translation: people should go out and work).

Son:

  • Will I get some reward if I clean my room? (Translation: Why people work)

Father:

  • You will get a bowl of ice-cream (Translation: you will get paid to be able to live)

Son:

  • A full bowl of Ice-cream? (Translation: Do I need to pay tax?)

Father:

  • I will eat one-third of you Ice- cream first (Translation: will pay 30-35 % tax)

Son:

  • What if I am extra good and clean my room very good? (Translation: What if I work harder?)

Father:

  • Then I will eat half of your ice-cream (Translation: if you get paid more than a level, you will pay 50 % tax on your income).

I believe this is the easiest way to explain to a child how Swedish tax works. What do you think? Write a comment and share if you find the article funny.

I was born and raised in 1968 in Tehran, the capital of Iran. At the age of 18, I was enlisted for the mandatory service in the military. At that time Iran was in a bloody war against Iraq. I had to endure the two years at the military. Soon after my service was ended, I got a job as a bank teller. I worked at this job for 4 years. 1992 I moved to Sweden to continue studying. At the same year, I met my lovely wife and married her. We got two children shortly after. I started university in 1997, and at the year 2000, I got my BSc degree in electrical engineering. After my education, I have had many jobs, Software designer, programmer, project manager. I am fluent in three languages, Swedish, English, and Persian (mother tongue). To sit in one place and not do anything, is a concept which I am not familiar with. I am active all the time. I like fantasy, Sci-fi books. To discover the unknown always fascinates me. Any mystery which is worth investigating captures my interest. It is always fascinating to see how people turn their imaginations and experiences into art which people can share.
