I'm trying to work out what this would be in English to get a correct name - is it something like our (traffic) congestion charge in London?
Advice appreciated!

Explanation:
Helen,

Your guess is exactly right. It's called a "skatt" because technicalities in Swedish law mean that it is a tax.

I don't know for sure in what form statute references like this one are normally translated into English, so I made a guess above.
