Founding Sabaton vocalist Joakim Brodén and bassist Pär Sundström have been ordered by Skatteverket, the Swedish Tax Agency, to pay back hundreds of thousands of dollars in tax surcharges. According to Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, the duo are being accused of not properly reporting their North American tour income from between 2016 and 2018 properly.

Brodén and Sundström claim they have followed the United States – Sweden Tax Treaty, which covers their income, and should not have to pay the surcharges. As of now, Brodén owes more than two million Swedish kronor, or over $233,000. It's not clear how much Sundström owes.

Sabaton will kick off their tour with Judas Priest this week, which… hopefully goes according to plan financially.
